Hueston Hennigan Welcomes New Partner Alex Romain
Hueston Hennigan LLP is pleased to announce that Alex G. Romain has joined the firm as a partner. Mr. Romain comes from Williams & Connolly LLP in Washington, D.C., where he was a litigation partner since January 2007. Mr. Romain is consistently recognized as a celebrated and skilled litigator and trial lawyer, and he has more than 17 years’ experience in high-stakes complex civil and corporate litigation, securities litigation and enforcement, and white-collar criminal defense.
Notably, Mr. Romain was a member of the trial team that successfully defended the late Senator Ted Stevens. The American Lawyer has described his team’s work in that case as “one of the best criminal defense performances in memory.” He successfully represented the Baltimore Ravens and several of its senior personnel in connection with the independent investigation conducted into the National Football League’s handling of the Ray Rice controversy and Mr. Rice’s grievance against the Ravens. Mr. Romain also successfully represented the former Chairman and CEO of Fannie Mae against securities fraud claims in which the plaintiff claimed more than $2 billion in damages, and the court awarded his client summary judgment on all counts.
Mr. Romain’s appellate advocacy has garnered him praise by the National Law Journal, and he has been named one of the “Most Influential Black Lawyers” in the country and was named by Law360 as one of its “Minority Powerbrokers.”
Mr. Romain’s arrival caps a successful year at Hueston Hennigan. In 2016, Hueston Hennigan was ranked among the nation’s Top 10 litigation boutiques by Benchmark Litigation; named one of five “Go To Trial Law Firms” in the nation by Law360; deemed to have the best white collar department by The Recorder; and was ranked highly in multiple disciplines by the prominent legal guide Chambers & Partners.
