McGuireWoods continues the growth of its global litigation capabilities with the arrival of Houston partner Jeremiah Anderson, who brings nearly two decades of experience representing multinational companies in commercial litigation, including energy and construction industry disputes.
Anderson represents businesses in complex commercial and environmental tort matters. He represents corporate clients as both plaintiff and defendant in trial and appellate courts throughout the United States and in domestic and international arbitrations. He joins McGuireWoods from another international firm.
“Jeremiah has deep experience in state and federal courts in Texas and elsewhere in the U.S. He is a highly respected trial lawyer and strategic adviser who excels at guiding clients through complex commercial litigation, particularly in matters related to energy and construction,” said Dion Hayes, McGuireWoods’ deputy managing partner for litigation.
Anderson’s notable work includes managing the litigation team for a global energy company in national multidistrict litigation related to alleged groundwater pollution. He led the defense of multiple individuals and companies against allegations of trade secrets theft in cases spanning four states. He also represented the owner of a North Dakota gas processing facility in an eight-figure construction dispute.
“Jeremiah’s impressive experience in high-stakes matters enhances our capabilities in Texas and nationally and provides powerful advantages for our clients,” said Jonathan Blank, chair of McGuireWoods’ Business & Securities Litigation Department.
Anderson is the fifth partner since the beginning of 2021 to join McGuireWoods’ Houston office, where nearly 30 lawyers practice in the areas of business and securities litigation, restructuring and insolvency, labor and employment, intellectual property litigation, healthcare, M&A, private equity and tax law.
“Jeremiah will be an important contributor to our litigation practice as we continue to expand in Houston,” said Yasser Madriz, managing partner of the Houston office. “He has a stellar reputation and we are delighted to have him join the firm.”
McGuireWoods’ commercial litigation team defends clients’ interests in domestic and cross-border matters in courtrooms and tribunals around the world. The firm earned national Tier 1 rankings for commercial, construction and environmental litigation in the 2022 edition of U.S. News-Best Lawyers’ “Best Law Firms.”
“McGuireWoods is a litigation powerhouse with a deep and talented bench of skilled lawyers,” Anderson said. “I am excited to be part of the firm’s continued growth in Texas and look forward to putting my experience to work for clients.”
