DALLAS, TX—Bell Nunnally Partner Ross Angus Williams has been named among the “40 Under 40” in 2020 by the Dallas Business Journal.
Williams was selected after the review of several hundred nominations by a judging panel comprised of past winners from a wide swath of industries and roles in the private, public and non-profit sectors. He joins past Bell Nunnally honorees Trowbridge (2012), R. Heath Cheek (2013) and Alana K. Ackels (2019).
Williams is a member of Bell Nunnally’s Litigation; Intellectual Property; Labor, Employment and Benefits; and Entertainment, Advertising and New Media practices. He routinely tackles complex business disputes involving trade secrets, cryptocurrency and blockchain, non-competes and other restrictive covenants, unfair competition, contracts, torts, real estate and internet defamation. Williams has briefed appellate matters before state and federal appellate courts, including the Texas Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court, the latter twice at certiorari.
Active in his community, Williams served for approximately four years (through March 2020) as a city official on the Community Development Commission for the City of Dallas, as the Commissioner for District 14. The commission meets at City Hall once a month to discuss and advise the City Council on the budgetary process regarding all community development federal funding received and distributed in the City of Dallas.
Williams also serves as the current Chairman of the Friends of Fair Park, and has been the elected Legal Counsel of the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce each year since 2016.
