Brian D. Boone

Brian Boone has represented clients before the U.S. Supreme Court, federal and state appellate and trial courts, and arbitration panels in cases involving constitutional law, antitrust, RICO, the False Claims Act, health care, securities and state consumer fraud laws. Brian has argued before federal and state appellate courts in cases involving complex commercial disputes.

In December 2014, Brian and fellow Alston & Bird litigator Nowell Berreth convinced the U.S. Supreme Court to grant review in Dart Cherokee Basin Operating Co., LLC v. Owens, No. 13-719, and then to rule in their clients’ favor on the merits. That victory prompted Law360 to name Nowell and Brian to its weekly list of “Legal Lions.” Brian also recently argued and won a complex appeal before the Second Circuit, securing a $10 million judgment for his clients.

Brian served as a judicial clerk to the Honorable Karen J. Williams of the Fourth Circuit. He graduated with high honors from Emory University School of Law, where he was the Sol I. Golden Scholar. Brian received his undergraduate degree, summa cum laude, in political science and history from King College.

In 2014, 2015 and 2016, Brian was named a North Carolina Super Lawyers “Rising Star” in Litigation.
