Dunnington Announces Raymond J. Dowd Named General Counsel of the Federal Bar Association
Dunnington, Bartholow & Miller, LLP, a leading New York City-based law firm established in 1921 that provides services including trusts and estates, corporate, taxation, litigation, real estate, construction, intellectual property and art law announced today that litigation partner Raymond J. Dowd was named General Counsel of the Federal Bar Association (FBA), the premier bar association serving the federal practitioner and the federal judiciary.
Mr. Dowd, who currently serves as the FBA’s Vice President for the Second Circuit, was appointed last week as General Counsel at the New Orleans annual convention. Mr. Dowd served as President of the FBA’s Southern District of New York Chapter and sits on the Editorial Board of The Federal Lawyer.
“At Dunnington, we have a proud and long-standing tradition of volunteerism and support of our local and national bar associations. We are very proud that Ray has been named General Counsel of the FBA,” said Carol Sigmond, the firm’s administrative partner.
Mr. Dowd’s litigation practice recently garnered national attention with a victory at the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. In Bakalar v. Vavra, Mr. Dowd represented descendants of Holocaust victims in recovering Nazi looted art, successfully arguing that New York law should trump Swiss law in determining title to stolen artworks. An experienced federal and state litigator, Mr. Dowd’s victories include summary judgment and a bench trial in trademark and unfair competition claims over the use of FASHION TELEVISION and litigation involving the estate of heiress Doris Duke, including removing the corporate fiduciary U.S. Trust Co. and upholding a $100,000 trust for her dogs.
Mr. Dowd has repeatedly been named a New York Superlawyer and is active in the Copyright Society of the U.S.A. and New York County Lawyers’ Association. He is author of Copyright Litigation Handbook (5th Ed. 2010), a Thomson West publication, the Copyright Litigation Blog, and is a former contributor to the New York Law Journal.
