Leading Voting Rights Advocate Joins Perkins Coie


Both DLA Piper and Perkins Coie announced several additions to their firms in December.

Spiva, a renowned voting rights advocate, has conducted trials, arbitrated cases, and argued appeals in First Amendment law, civil rights, congressional redistricting, securities, and antitrust law. He has represented businesses and associations in many commercial litigation matters, and has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in national class action cases. In addition, he brought a case on behalf of a sexual assault survivor that triggered the overhaul of police and hospital response procedures in Washington, D.C.

Ryan Preston joined the Dallas office in November.

Spiva graduated from Harvard Law School and earned his B.A. from Yale University. He has published, given speeches, and testified on voting rights, antitrust, and other issues. He has served as the chair of the board of directors of D.C. Vote and as the chair of the D.C. Bar Litigation Section Sterring Committee. He has testified before Congress in favor of the D.C. Voting Rights Act, a bill that proposed a voting representative in Congress for residents of D.C. Currently, Spiva is a member of the advisory boards of the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies and American Antitrust Institute.
