Little Rock-based Rose Law Firm said Monday (Dec. 13) that David S. Mitchell Jr. has been elected the firm’s new managing member, effective Feb. 1, 2022.
Mitchell succeeds Robyn P. Allmendinger, who served as the firm’s first female managing member for the past four years and recently decided to step down from the role. She will continue as a member of the firm’s management committee.
“Our firm benefited greatly from Robyn’s leadership in navigating us through an unprecedented time during our nation’s history,” Mitchell said in a statement. “She elevated our firm’s future with her intellect, vision, wisdom and sense of fairness. We are extremely grateful for her service and her continued commitment to the firm.”
According to a news release, Mitchell joined the firm in 2015 and concentrates his practice in business, financial services and class action litigation. He also represents financial institutions and other creditors in both litigation and restructuring as well as insolvency matters including cases involving commercial workouts, receiverships and bankruptcies.
Previously, Mitchell served as head of the firm’s litigation department and served as chair of the firm’s lateral hiring committee. He was also a member of the firm’s marketing, business development and diversity and inclusion committees.
“David has excelled in every leadership role he has served in at the firm through his dedication and future-focused vision,” Allmendinger said. “We are all excited to see where his fresh and bold energy will take us.”
Mitchell earned a law degree from the University of Arkansas School of Law and graduated from Washington & Lee University with a bachelor’s degree in politics.
Rose Law Firm is the state’s oldest business and has offices in Little Rock and Fayetteville.
