WASHINGTON, DC—Kelley Drye & Warren LLP today announced the appointment of Alan Luberda as office managing partner for its Washington, DC location. Alan will oversee day-to-day office management, implement operating and strategic plans, manage budgets, and represent Kelley Drye in the D.C. community.
Alan served as chair of the firm’s International Trade practice for five years and was a member of the firm’s Earnings Allocation Committee for the last three years. Alan’s practice focuses on the areas of U.S. trade remedy law, customs, and export controls law and regulation. He counsels and represents businesses – from large multinationals to family-owned enterprises – as well as industry and trade associations, in international trade–related matters before Congress, the Department of Commerce, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the U.S. International Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security (including the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection) and other agencies.
Alan succeeds Kathy Cannon, who steps down after serving as Washington, D.C. Office Managing Partner for seven years to focus on her International Trade practice.
