(Reuters) – Haynes and Boone announced Monday that they have taken advantage of Daniel Geyser, who heads the U.S. Supreme Court, and the practice of federal appeals at an appeals store based in Texas, for direct their practice to the higher courts.

Geyser, who will have to argue in the country’s top court over jurisdictional issues related to arbitral awards this November, will lead the U.S. Supreme Court practice of Haynes and Boone from Denver, the firm said.

“It’s exactly the right foundation you would look for in a top-tier Supreme Court practice,” Geyser said.

Geyser comes from Alexander Dubose & Jefferson, a Texas-based store that focuses on resources. According to his LinkedIn profile, Geyser has held previous roles at the Los Angeles-based litigation boutique Stris & Maher, McKool Smith and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.

After recently moving to Denver from Dallas, Geyser said his decision to join Haynes and Boone was an easy call given the work of the firm and the friends who already work there.

While his appellate practice allows him to work from anywhere, Geyser said “there’s something wonderful about being in a place where you literally have friends in the hallway.”

Announcing their hiring, Haynes and Boone filed Geyser’s record with the United States Supreme Court. With Geyser arguing eleven cases before the high court, only four other private practice attorneys have argued so much before the U.S. Supreme Court in the past five years, the firm said.

Geyser’s arguments in November will be 12, the firm added.

Haynes and Boone also made known the ubiquitous nature of Geyser practice: he has argued or reported cases in almost all federal appeals circuits and has litigated cases in virtually every major area of ​​federal law.

“I’ve seen first-hand the extent to which companies yearn for the unique ideas Dan can offer on how to distill and craft arguments to win the day on appeal,” said Ben Mesches, co-chair of the court practice group. of Haynes and Boone, in a statement.

Marcy Hogan Greer, managing partner of Alexander Dubose and Jefferson, said the firm wished Geyser the best.

“Dan Geyser is a wonderful person and a gifted lawyer who will continue to practice as an extraordinary client advocate before the U.S. Supreme Court,” he said.

Earlier this month, Haynes and Boone added to their Dallas office Randy Peak, a corporate partner at DLA Piper that represents health, life sciences and technology clients.
