Partner Jarvis Hollingsworth First Texan to Be Named to New York Wall Street Hall of Fame 

NEW YORK (Feb. 20, 2006) – Bracewell & Giuliani LLP announced that Jarvis Hollingsworth, a partner who practices in the firm's Houston office, has been selected by the New York chapter of the National Association of Securities Professionals (NASP) to be inducted into its “Wall Street Hall of Fame.” He is the first Texan to receive the honor.

Every year, the NASP inducts several professionals who display a profound commitment to excellence and diversity on Wall Street. Hollingsworth’s recognition by the NASP resulted from his contributions and role of chairman of the board of trustees for the Teacher Retirement System of Texas. The entity delivers retirement and related benefits to more than one million public education and higher education employees and retirees via management of a trust fund in excess of $90 billion authorized by the Texas Legislature.

Some of the past Wall Street Hall of Fame inductees include Carl McCall, former comptroller for the state of New York; James Bell, CFO for Boeing; Bill Heitman, head of Verizon Pension Fund; Denise Nappier, treasurer of the State of Connecticut; and Frank Savage, CEO of Savage Holdings and chairman of Alliance Capital.

Hollingsworth, currently a partner in the Public Law Section of the Houston, Texas, office of Bracewell & Giuliani, is a member of the American, National and Houston Bar Associations, as well as the Houston Lawyers Association. From 2001 to 2004, he served on the board of directors of the State Bar of Texas. He is also a director of the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau.

A native of Fayette, Alabama, Hollingsworth received a bachelor’s degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point and a law degree from the University of Houston Law Center.
