McDermott expands Houston office with the addition of Allan Van Fleet
McDermott Will & Emery has welcomed leading competition partner Allan Van Fleet to its Houston office. He previously spent six years at Greenberg Traurig LLP where he was director of the firm’s competition group.
Van Fleet has over 30 years of experience providing litigation, compliance and transactional advice to large and small companies and government bodies in a range of industries from computer hardware and software, to food and beverage and financial services.
Van Fleet, who in the future plans to split his time between the firm’s Houston and Washington, DC antitrust practice says: “I am very excited about joining McDermott. Not only is it a preeminent, international law firm in terms of the quality and breadth of its core legal services, but it has an exemplary record in service to the community through its commitment to pro bono activities.”
Commenting on the new appointment Steven Spears, managing partner of McDermott’s Houston office, says: “Allan brings a tremendous pedigree of senior-level experience and knowledge to our Houston office. It has always been our goal in Houston to build this office around the very best attorneys Texas has to offer.”
Van Fleet is listed in The International Who’s Who of Competition Lawyers & Economists.
