Brian D. Boone

Brian Boone is a member of the Litigation & Trial Practice Group. Brian has represented clients before the U.S. Supreme Court, federal and state appellate and trial courts, and arbitration panels in cases (including many class actions) involving constitutional law, the antitrust laws, RICO, the False Claims Act, the healthcare laws, the securities laws, and state consumer-fraud laws. Recently, Brian and fellow Alston litigator Nowell Berreth convinced the U.S. Supreme Court to grant review in Dart Cherokee Basin Operating Co., LLC v. Owens, No. 13-719 (S. Ct. October Term 2014)—a case in which the Court will clarify the standards for removing an action to federal court.

Brian started private practice in the Washington, D.C. office of a global law firm, where he focused on appellate and complex commercial litigation. Before that, Brian served as a judicial clerk to the Honorable Karen J. Williams of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. He graduated with high honors from Emory University School of Law, where he was the Sol I. Golden Scholar. Brian received his undergraduate degree, summa cum laude in political science and history, from King College.
