January 05, 2015

Firm Expands Expertise with New Legal Ethics and Government Ethics Practice

WASHINGTON, DC — January 5, 2015 – Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis LLP announced today that Thomas B. Mason has joined the firm, bringing with him one of Washington’s most respected practices in legal ethics and government ethics.  Mr. Mason and his colleagues in this practice will provide representation and counsel to attorneys on professional responsibility, malpractice, and ethics issues, as well as to government officials and others on government ethics issues.

With more than 20 years of experience representing attorneys on a variety of malpractice and ethics matters, Mr. Mason is one of only a handful of seasoned practitioners in the field.  He recently served three terms as the chair of the DC Bar Ethics Committee and remains deeply involved with ethics work at the DC Bar.  His work was honored by The Best Lawyers in America in the areas of Ethics and Professional Responsibility Law and Legal Malpractice Law for Defendants in 2013.  In 2014, Best Lawyers named him the Washington, DC Ethics and Professional Responsibility Lawyer of the Year.

Mr. Mason’s practice augments the boutique firm’s focus on legal problems that are best solved with expertise rather than leverage. “Decisive, sound judgment is crucial for any client dealing with malpractice and ethics issues,” said Mr. Mason. “Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis is a natural fit for my work, as a firm that shares my commitment to superior client service and efficient representation.”

HWG Chairman Scott Blake Harris concurred.  “Tom Mason is a perfect fit for our firm and we are delighted he has decided to join us. His legal and government ethics practice, like our other practices, combines deep legal and industry expertise with sound judgment and business acumen. And putting Tom together with the expertise of our litigation team will form a great combination for our clients.”

Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis is a boutique law firm that provides clients with quality representation, offering expertise in litigation, appellate, telecom, technology, and national security law—and now in legal and government ethics as well.
