As in past years, MCCA plans to profile a select group of prominent minority "rainmaker” lawyers in the November/December 2013 issue of Diversity & the Bar. We feel it’s always important to highlight the professional successes of minority attorneys who continue to lead the industry.
To be eligible, an attorney must have a proven record (i.e., several years) of compiling books of business exceeding $2 million annually, including over the past year. Firms may choose to proffer more than one person, but a firm will not be represented by more than one attorney in the final group. As has been the case in previous iterations, our goal is for the group to embody a wide representation in several areas, including ethnicity, gender, geographic location, and practice area.
For your attorney(s) to be considered for inclusion in this year’s list, please submit candidates directly to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, August 26, 2013. There is no official submission form. However, a brief 200 word statement that includes attorney career highlights will help the selection process. The email submission should include the attorney’s ethnicity, gender, geographic location, and practice area. Please direct all questions, comments, and concerns to him as well.
Thank you for your attention in this matter, and we wish you all the best in the coming months.
