Atlantic Legal Foundation (ALF) Executive Vice President & General Counsel Larry Ebner has been appointed Chair of the DRI Center for Law and Public Policy. DRI is the nation’s largest voluntary bar association for civil litigation attorneys who defend the interests of business in trial and appellate courts.
The Center is DRI’s think tank and advocacy voice. Its three components—the Public Policy Committee, Legislation and Rules Committee, and Amicus Committee—address substantive law and civil practice issues at both the federal and state level.
ALF Chairman & President Dan Fisk commented on Larry’s appointment and the potential synergy that it creates between ALF and DRI:
“ALF’s leadership team, including its Board, Advisory Council, and Staff, is especially pleased to recognize and extol Larry’s appointment as Chair of the DRI Center for Law and Public Policy. The Center’s objectives and advocacy often complement ALF’s mission. Larry’s volunteer activities as Chair of the Center are bound to provide synergy for ALF and DRI as both organizations advance their work serving the broad public interest through improving American jurisprudence.”
Similarly, DRI Chief Executive Officer Dean Martinez stated:
“We are excited to have Larry assume this leadership role at The Center. He will be a key partner in our work to promote a judicial system that respects the rule of law, and to protect the interests of business and individuals through legal scholarship, practical expertise, and advocacy.”
Larry, who has been practicing law for more than five decades, conducts ALF’s nationally renowned amicus curiae program in the Supreme Court, federal courts of appeals, and state appellate courts. He has been elected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers and as a peer-nominated Defense Counsel member of the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel.
Larry is a graduate of Dartmouth College (1969) and Harvard Law School.
