Exciting news from RR&A – Introducing Raymond “Ray” Hafner
We’re pleased to announce a new addition to our firm. Raymond “Ray” Hafner joined our firm this month in the position of Of Counsel and starting January 1, 2020, he will hold the position of Senior Associate.
Ray received his J.D. from The University of Virginia School of Law in May 2009. Before that he graduated from the University of Houston Honors College in 2005.
Ray has spent the past decade providing clients in the energy business with innovative and efficient solutions to all manner of commercial problems, especially when facing new or changing business concerns. Ray’s work at both a top law firm and in an in-house environment gives him a unique understanding of the challenge’s companies face across all aspects of their business.
During the first half of his career as a litigator, Ray represented some of the largest oil and gas companies in the world in environmental and complex commercial cases. After moving to an in-house generalist role, Ray continued to bring expertise to all aspects of the oil and gas business for small and mid-sized companies. His background as a disputes lawyer allows him to see all the interrelated parts to any decision, including the regulatory, financial, and commercial aspects a specialist might miss.
Ray’s rate will be $270 per hour except where alternative billing arrangements have been made. We believe Ray will be a great asset to our firm and will allow us to further our mission to provide efficient, responsive and cost-effective services to all our clients.
