WASHINGTON -- C. Willis Ritter and Richard A. Eichner are leaving the law firm of Arter Hadden Haynes & Miller this month to start their own public finance practice.

Mr. Ritter, who heads Arter Hadden's municipal bond department, said the firm will be called Ritter & Eichner and will be modeled after Haynes & Miller, the Washington public finance law firm that merged with Cleveland-based Arter & Hadden last year.

Martin A. Traber, a partner, said the firm regrets losing Mr. Willis, who he said "has a superb and supremely creative mind."

The rest of the bond department will remain at Arter Hadden, he said.
