Gentry Locke Welcomes Noah Sullivan to its Richmond Office
The Virginia law firm of Gentry Locke is pleased to welcome Noah Sullivan as a partner in its Richmond office. Sullivan will work in the firm’s commercial litigation practice.
“Noah’s experience combines almost a decade of high-stakes commercial litigation at Gibson Dunn together with his service as Deputy Counsel and then Counsel to former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. His experience expands our ability to offer unique skill and insight to navigate our clients’ most challenging litigation, regulatory, and legislative matters in our Richmond office,” said Gentry Locke Managing Partner Monica T. Monday.
Prior to joining Gentry Locke, Sullivan worked as a senior associate at the Washington, D.C. office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. He has experience at every stage of civil litigation, working on complex matters across a diverse set of legal issues in federal and state courts across the United States, as well as in arbitration. He has successfully litigated matters ranging from trademark, trade, and tax disputes to disputes arising under federal securities laws, the False Claims Act, federal and state employment and civil rights laws, and state-law commercial disputes.
Sullivan also previously served as Deputy Counsel and then Counsel to Governor Terence R. McAuliffe in Richmond, Virginia, where he served as the chief legal advisor to the Governor and Cabinet. Sullivan was instrumental in developing the legal framework and successfully defending Governor McAuliffe’s historic policy to restore voting rights to more than 170,000 ex-felons.
In addition, Sullivan was primarily responsible for reviewing all executive branch agency rulemakings in Virginia on behalf of the Governor, spanning numerous policy and legal topics conducted under the Virginia Administrative Process Act, as well as reviewing legislation passed by the General Assembly of Virginia.
“I am honored to join Gentry Locke,” Sullivan said. “For me, this is coming home to Virginia and an opportunity to join my litigation and Virginia government experience together to serve clients in the Richmond community and across the Commonwealth. I am thrilled to start this next chapter with the talented, dynamic professionals at Gentry Locke.”
Sullivan received his J.D. from Stanford Law School and his B.A. from University of Virginia.
