Clarence E. Ellington III
Clarence E. Ellington III is an Associate at the Los Angeles office. He holds a B.A. in Political Science from UCLA and earned his J.D. at Howard University School of Law. Prior to his legal studies, Clarence spent six years developing his skills in a real-world environment. His work experience ranges from running a property management company with his father to supply chain management for Beachbody, LLC.
At Howard University School of Law, Clarence had the privilege of becoming a Henry Ramsey Dean's Fellow, a selective group of seven highest-performing students chosen to mentor and teach students to improve their writing. This opportunity allowed Clarence to foster imperative communication and writing skills while he worked as a writer and editor for the Howard Human & Civil Rights Law Review. Clarence enhanced his law school experience by assisting the D.C. Public Employee Relations Board, becoming a Black Entertainment & Sports Lawyers Association member, and being appointed vice president of the Sports & Entertainment Law Students Association.
After his second year of law school, Clarence accepted a position as a Summer Associate at Murchison & Cumming, LLP in 2020 and continued on as a Post-Bar Clerk in 2021 before becoming an Associate. He is interested in Employment Law due to his eagerness to help all kinds of businesses grow. The corporate aspect of the law intrigues him, and he seeks to play an integral role in keeping industries afloat. Clarence is trained in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and certified in conducting mediations as a third-party neutral.
Clarence is a unique team player with a positive outlook who is willing to go above and beyond to help his colleagues reach their goals. He believes that the best investment you can make is investing in people, a lesson passed down from his father. Clarence is happy to be back in Los Angeles, where he was born and raised. Away from the office, Clarence enjoys basketball, video games, and learning about different cultures and politics in documentaries.
