WASHINGTON, DC – Gilbert LLP announced today that Richard Leveridge, Esq., is joining the D.C.-based law firm as a partner. Leveridge, who comes to Gilbert from Adams Holcomb LLP, has been practicing law for more than 35 years. He is a deeply experienced litigator with a national reputation in commercial litigation and antitrust class actions.
Leveridge’s litigation practice has encompassed a wide range of matters, including cases related to the agribusiness, aviation, banking, chemical, computer, corrugated paper, credit card, energy, insurance, and construction industries. Leveridge has litigated in federal and state courts throughout the country, and he and his litigation teams have recovered more than $3.5 billion for their clients.
“We are so pleased to have Rick join us,” said Scott Gilbert, the founding partner and Chairman of Gilbert LLP. “The depth and breadth of his litigation experience will further expand Gilbert’s litigation practice, and his commercial and antitrust experience will be an excellent complement to our expertise in complex dispute resolution and insurance recovery. A number of us had the pleasure of working directly with Rick at our prior law firm. He is a superb litigator, and an effective leader and strategist. We are very excited to have Rick join the partnership and we look forward to achieving even greater milestones together.”
Prior to Adams Holcomb, Leveridge was a partner at Dickstein Shapiro LLP for 25 years. His practice has focused on commercial litigation and serving corporate and institutional clients who suffered business injuries as a result of illegal price-fixing cartels in the U.S. and abroad.
Leveridge is a member of the bars of the District of Columbia and the State of New York. He is a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center.
“Gilbert has long been known as a firm that employs complex strategies to solve extremely difficult and high-stakes problems for their clients,” Leveridge said. “I am very excited to join Scott and other Gilbert partners in forging even greater opportunities for the firm and its clients, and in contributing my litigation focus and expertise to Gilbert’s growing practice areas.”
