Lawrence S. Ebner


Larry Ebner is a polished and accomplished advocate for businesses and industries that need a strong and persuasive voice in federal and state appellate courts. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, a 2018 Washington DC Super Lawyer, and a graduate of Dartmouth College and Harvard Law School. After 42 years as a Washington, D.C.-based litigator and appellate practice leader at a major law firm, Larry launched his own, national, high-stakes appellate litigation boutique, Capital Appellate Advocacy. Clients praise Larry for his strategic thinking, as well as for his "hands-on" approach and analytical, brief-writing, and oral advocacy skills. He has authored hundreds of briefs on complex legal issues in the Supreme Court, in every federal circuit court of appeals, and in state appellate courts, and has presented oral arguments in federal and state appellate courts throughout the United States. Much of Larry’s practice focuses on appeals that implicate significant federal interests—for example, cases involving federally regulated or procured products or services. Larry is a nationally recognized expert on constitutionally based pretrial defenses, such as federal preemption of state-law product liability suits involving pesticides, drugs, and medical devices. He also has played a leading role in development of pretrial defenses on behalf of government contractors that provide support services to the U.S. military in foreign combat zones. Larry’s thought leadership is reflected in his prolific professional writing and speaking. He serves as Editor of The Appellate Advocate, the newsletter of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers. Larry also is active in DRI-The Voice of the Defense Bar, where he serves as Chair of the Amicus Committee and a frequent author of Supreme Court amicus curiae briefs on behalf of the 22,000-lawyer organization. He also serves as Publications Chair for DRI's Appellate Advocacy Committee. Larry began his career as an Honors Program attorney in the Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.
