Former Howrey head joins Winston & Strawn as an equity partner

September 14, 2011 Winston & Strawn has taken on former head of defunct firm Howrey, Robert Ruyak as an equity partner in the Washington DC office. Ruyak brings expertise in intellectual property and antitrust law to the firm's global litigation practice.

Winston chairman Dan Webb said that adding the former Howrey chairman to the firm's litigation group represents a "major coup", adding: "Bob is truly an outstanding first-chair trial lawyer," whose "contacts with general counsels and major decision makers in corporate America are really second to none."

Ruyak said his new firm's strong reputation among clients and colleagues was a major draw, as was what he called Winston's "extraordinary litigation practice."
