troutman sandersTroutman Sanders has appointed Amie V. Colby as managing partner of its Washington D.C. office, the firm said in a press release this week.

Colby, 38, has been a partner at Troutman Sanders since 2007 and is a member of the firm’s energy practice group. She succeeds Kevin C. Fitzgerald, who led the D.C. office since 1999 and was recently promoted to the firm-wide position of executive partner for client development strategic planning.

“We are confident that Amie will provide exciting, dynamic and exuberant leadership that will continue the growth of the D.C. office and continue the positive integration of the firm’s merger with Ross, Dixon & Bell, LLP,” said Robert W. Webb Jr., chairman and managing partner of Troutman Sanders. “We look forward to her leadership.”


Colby, who represents clients in the energy industry before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, will continue her legal practice while overseeing the firm’s 90+ attorneys in the nation’s capital. She is a graduate of Vanderbilt University, received her law degree from Georgetown University in 1999, and joined Troutman Sanders as an associate that same year. She has previously served as the chair of the firm’s D.C. Recruiting Committee

Troutman Sanders opened its D.C. office in 1993, which signaled the firm’s first expansion outside of its Atlanta headquarters. Today, the firm has offices in 16 cities on three continents.

As for Fitzgerald, who also is a member of the law firm’s executive committee, he will continue his legal practice. He is a partner in the firm’s energy practice group and counsels energy companies, investors and developers in the electric, natural gas and renewable energy markets.
Troutman Sanders LLP , founded in 1897, is an international law firm with over 650 lawyers and 16 offices in North America, Europe and Asia.
