Adam Ramos ’06

Then & NowAdam Ramos is a former clerk for the Honorable Francis X. Flaherty of the Supreme Court of Rhode Island, is now an associate with Hinckley, Allen & Snyder LLP in Providence. Like many RWU Law grads, Adam had members of the judiciary as adjunct professors at RWU Law; he also took part in court-related programs while in law school – such as the Clark Moot Court Competition (judged every year by the Rhode Island Supreme Court), as well as clinical experiences. “By the time I started clerking,” he says, “I already felt I knew what I was doing.”

Today, Adam’s practice focuses on complex civil litigation, including commercial, intellectual property, health care, employment, civil rights, construction and land use. He represents a broad range of institutional and individual clients and has tried cases and presented appeals in both state and federal courts. Adam recently was a key member of the three-person team that obtained a multi-million dollar verdict in a bench trial for a non-profit hospital in a dispute with its former parent company. Adam also was part of a team that won summary judgment in a contributory trademark infringement matter holding the owner of a flea market liable for the sale of counterfeit merchandise by vendors at the flea market.
