Dana E. Foster

Partner, Washington, DC


Dana is a seasoned trial and appellate litigator in the Firm's Competition section.  He advises domestic and foreign clients in all aspects of complex civil and criminal matters, both at the federal and the state level.  Dana's practice focuses on litigation in U.S. courts and before U.S. regulators, but he has broad experience in navigating the often intricate procedures of foreign tribunals and regulators in Europe, Asia, and South America.

Dana advises clients in connection with governmental investigations and in conducting their own internal reviews.

Dana joined White & Case's New York office in 2002 in its Commercial Litigation group, where he represented several of the Firm's pharma and sovereign clients in state and federal courts in New York.  He transferred to the Firm's Washington office in 2004.  Dana has also spent significant time in the Firm's Brussels and Tokyo offices.

Pro bono work is also a pillar of Dana's practice.  He has argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and he regularly appears in the Domestic Relations branch of the D.C. Superior Court on behalf of both parents and children.
