US: Appellate, Antitrust Partners are the new leadership at Gibson Dunn in DC

 |  July 8, 2018
Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher has new leadership in Washington, after tapping litigators Thomas Dupree Jr. and Cynthia Richman as co-partners-in-charge of the D.C. office.

Dupree and Richman’s tenure began July 1, following seven years with fellow litigation partners Daniel Nelson and Andrew Tulumello at the helm.

Dupree said Nelson and Tulumello were “absolutely top notch.” He and Richman aren’t planning to make substantial changes to the firm’s strategy, he said, but look to “continue the tradition of excellence.”

“If it’s not broke, we’re not going to try to fix it,” Richman added.

Both in their 40s, Richman and Dupree began their careers as summer associates at Gibson Dunn and have stayed at the firm ever since, with the exception of Dupree’s stint at the Justice Department.

From 2007 to 2009, he worked in the civil division of the Justice Department, rising to the division’s second-in-command as principal deputy assistant attorney general. Dupree has a wide-range of experience as a trial and appellate lawyer and has argued in all 13 circuits and at the US Supreme Court.

Dupree’s clients at the firm have included Facebook, Chrysler, Jerry Seinfeld, and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. In Daimler AG v. Bauman, his US Supreme Court debut, he won a 9-0 ruling in 2014 that helped define the limits of US jurisdiction over foreign conduct.
