Partners Ronald Machen and Kevin Prussia were named to Savoy Magazine’s 2022 list of the “Most Influential Black Lawyers.” The list, which was first published in 2018, recognizes Black lawyers whose professional track record and standing in the community have left an indelible mark on the legal field.
Machen, who was named to the magazine’s inaugural list in 2018, is a member of WilmerHale’s global Management Committee and co-chair of the White Collar Defense and Investigations Practice. His storied career in both the private and public sectors have earned him a reputation as one of the nation’s leading trial and white-collar defense lawyers. Machen is also an active member of The Council on Foreign Relations and Diversity Law Institute, an international nonprofit dedicated to diversifying the legal profession and justice system.
Prussia, also a member of WilmerHale’s global Management Committee, has a wealth of experience representing leading life science and technology companies in intellectual property disputes and commercial matters. In additional to his work in the firm’s Litigation/Controversy Department, Prussia leads a deep civil rights pro bono practice. He has also served on the Board of Directors for the ACLU of Massachusetts for eleven years and was President of the Board from 2015-2019.
