Mayer Brown Adds DOJ Veteran
Globally renowned firm Mayer Brown has announced the addition of William H. Stallings, a fifteen year veteran of the US Department of Justice, to their Washington, DC firm. As they've added 40 lateral moves since the beginning of 2014, their vigorous expansion now includes this strong and well-seasoned figure.
Indeed, Mayer Brown offers perhaps the best platform to give a good next step for somebody as experienced as Stallings. After receiving his JD and BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he began his career in the private sector at an AmLaw 100 firm handling private antitrust cases, and has since done considerable work with the DOJ, heading many major projects, including resolving multi-billion dollar transactions and making special use of disgorgement as a Sherman Act remedy.
"Bill and Mark Ryan's arrivals from the DOJ, along with nearly 40 other exceptional new colleagues within the last 18 months, further illustrate that our DC office continues to attract high-ranking government officials and notable laterals," said Dan Masur, partner-in-charge of Mayer Brown's Washington DC office. "It's an exciting time to be a lawyer in our DC office as we continue to strategically expand to meet evolving client needs."
"Bill is a terrific addition to our expanding antitrust practice," said Mike Lackey, leader of Mayer Brown's global Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice. "His extensive substantive antitrust expertise and decades of government experience in significant areas, including energy, agriculture and transportation, will greatly benefit our clients."
