Two Attorneys Ranked by Peers in Practice.

Foley announced today that two attorneys in its Washington, D.C. office have been named 2007 “Super Lawyers” by Law & Politics Media, Inc.

The Foley attorneys named and their primary practices as classified by Law & Politics are Richard G. Stoll, environmental and administrative law and Jay N. Varon, antitrust litigation.

Richard G. Stoll is a partner and a member of the firm’s Environmental Practice. Stoll concentrates his practice on federal administrative and environmental law matters. He counsels corporations and trade associations on environmental issues before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state environmental agencies. He also represents clients in a variety of administrative law issues before other federal agencies. Stoll serves as an expert witness and arbitrator in environmental litigation and environmental disputes and handles EPA and state enforcement actions and rulemaking challenges.

Jay N. Varon is a partner in the firm’s Antitrust Practice. He has litigated a broad cross-section of commercial cases around the country, including antitrust and unfair competition, consumer finance and deceptive trade practice involving matters relating to the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (“RESPA”), the Fair Credit Reporting Act, (“FCRA”), Truth In Lending Act (“TILA”), “fair lending” and related federal and state unfair trade practice and consumer protection laws, as well as cases dealing with trade secrets, employment, environmental, business tort, securities fraud, product liability and breach of contract issues. He is a former chair of the firm’s Antitrust Practice and of its Washington, D.C. Litigation Department.

To compile the annual list, Law & Politics surveyed more than 17,000 lawyers practicing in the District of Columbia, asking them to vote for the best lawyers they have personally observed in action. The final list features the top five percent of Washington attorneys in more than 60 areas of practice and will be published in the June issue of Washington Law & Politics and in a special supplement in The New York Times.
