Ashley C. Parrish

is a partner in the Washington, D.C., office of King & Spalding, and a member of the firm’s national appellate and strategic counseling practice group. He focuses his practice on appellate, administrative, and constitutional law; on the preparation of high-risk cases for eventual appeal; and on strategic, complex litigation. In 2012, he was recognized by Law360 as a “rising star,” one of only five appellate lawyers nationwide chosen for this recognition. He is also recommended by Legal 500 for his appellate expertise, with clients describing him as “an intelligent, hardworking attorney with a strong base of experience” whose “ability to present complex technical and legal materials and arguments is a particular strength.”

Mr. Parrish frequently collaborates with the leaders of the firm’s litigation and Washington, D.C.-based regulatory practices. He has handled appeals and complex litigation matters in courts across the country, including significant matters before the U.S. Supreme Court, almost all of the federal courts of appeals, and a variety of state appellate courts. He regularly advises clients in federal administrative law and practice, and has experience in a diverse range of substantive areas, including energy, FDA/life sciences, health care, labor, products liability, international trade, environmental regulation, and bankruptcy.

After graduating from law school, Mr. Parrish served as a law clerk to the Honorable Emilio M. Garza on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit (1998-1999).
