Experienced Litigator William Bloom Joins Maynard


Maynard & Gale (Maynard) is pleased to welcome William Bloom to the Litigation Group. Bloom joins the Firm as Of Counsel, working from Maynard’s Birmingham office.

Upon graduating from the University of Virginia School of Law in 2012, Bloom served as Law Clerk for the Honorable William H. Pryor, Jr. of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Following his clerkship, Bloom spent more than seven years working in the Washington, D.C. office of a national litigation focused law firm. During his tenure there, he represented sophisticated companies, high-net-worth individuals, and government officials in a variety of complex commercial and appellate litigation involving class actions, the Administrative Procedure Act, and constitutional, contractual, and property rights disputes, as well as handling investigations and crisis management. As a member of Maynard’s Litigation Group, Bloom will continue to focus his practice in the areas of complex commercial, appellate, and securities litigation matters. In addition, he works with and advises clients facing crisis management situations and disruptive investigations.

”William clerked with us while he was in law school before deciding to commence his career in D.C., so we are acquainted with his talents and excited to have him back at our firm and in his home state of Alabama,” said John Smyth, Chair of Maynard’s Litigation Group. “He further broadens the depth of our practice when it comes to providing industry leading litigation services, and he possesses the skill level to step right in and assist with the multifaceted cases we are handling for our clients.”

Bloom earned his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law, where he was a member of the Order of the Coif and Articles Editor for the Virginia Law Review, and he holds a B.A., summa cum laude, from the University of Alabama. He is licensed in the District of Columbia and New York.

Maynard’s Commercial Litigation Practice holds a Band 1 ranking in Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, and the Firm has been recognized by BTI Consulting as a “Most Feared Litigation Firm.” With 150 lawyers in the Litigation Section, Maynard regularly handles matters throughout the United States involving antitrust and trade regulation, appellate and post-verdict decisions, class actions, commercial disputes, cybersecurity and privacy breaches, environmental and regulatory compliance, insurance sales practices, intellectual property and technology, labor and employment, product liability, and securities litigation.
