Experienced Litigator Ann Al-Bahish Returns to Haynes and Boone


Ann Al-Bahish, a litigator with deep, nationwide experience in environmental, commercial, and tort matters, has returned to Haynes and Boone, LLP as a partner in the Houston office.

“Ann’s tenacity, intelligence, and meticulous attention to detail have served her well throughout her career and are of tremendous benefit to her clients,” said Haynes and Boone Partner Michael J. Mazzone, co-chair of the Litigation Practice Group. “Ann is an exceptional lawyer who will be a true asset to the firm and our clients.”

Most recently, Ann served as a litigation partner at Kelley Drye & Warren LLP. With a doctorate degree in Public Health, she is highly adept at presenting and analyzing expert testimony and evidence, including scientific, economic and other types of technical evidence. Ann’s most recent trial involved a complete defense judgment on a $90 million environmental allocation claim brought against her client in federal district court in Tacoma, Washington. Ann has tried cases in Delaware, New Mexico, Texas and Washington and has additional litigation and appellate experience in California, New Jersey, New York, and Oregon and Vermont.

Formerly Of Counsel at Haynes and Boone, she chose to return to the firm because of the depth and skill of its litigation practice, along with her close working relationship with many Haynes and Boone lawyers.

“It is an honor to join the firm’s thriving, well-respected litigation team and to be able to work again with former colleagues who helped educate me and broaden my practice,” Ann said. “I look forward to helping Haynes and Boone continue to grow its litigation practice.”

A mother of three children, Ann is described by colleagues as insightful, strong, hard-working, and a great listener. She is dedicated to community service, especially in the areas of public health and non-profit leadership. She served as chair, vice-chair and secretary of the board of Healthcare for the Homeless - Houston and was a founding, and now current member, of the board of directors of Doctors for Change. Ann also serves on the board of the Houston Area Women’s Center, including on the finance and facilities strategic planning committees. She is a member of the Pro Bono College of the State Bar of Texas, a fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation and a graduate of the Center for Houston’s Future’s leadership forum.

Ann is a graduate of Harvard Law School, J.D., cum laude; Trinity University, B.A., magna cum laude; and the University of Texas Health Science Center – Houston, Ph.D.
