The awards recognize the top 40 lawyers under the age of 40 in the country who exemplify a wide range of high achievements in the legal field, including advocacy, innovation, vision, leadership, and overall legal and social engagement. “The 40 Under 40 Awards are perhaps the best professional award in the country for lawyers under 40. Each year, the program grows in quantity and quality of submissions, and this year we selected the smartest in the country,” said Aubrey “Nick” Pittman, Esq., Chair of the 40 Under 40 Awards. “If the recipients` current achievements are any indication of their future achievements, the legal space and our communities are in good hands,” Pittman said. This year`s winners also told us what they are most proud of as lawyers. For Elisabeth Theodore of Arnold & Porter, it is her work on partisan prosecutions of gerrymandering. “These cases combined an innovative legal strategy with big wins for our clients, who asserted their constitutional right to vote,” she said. Alexander “AJ” Merton of Quinn Emanuel said, “I am proud to ensure that I never miss an opportunity to do exceptional work for our clients. “These awards recognize lawyers who have demonstrated a genuine commitment to advancing important legal interests, as evidenced by their hard work, creativity, leadership and success at this stage of their respective careers,” said President Carlos Moore.
“The recipients were selected from a large list of candidates solely on the basis of merit, and the ultimate recipients are those most deserving for their keen sense of law, ingenuity and community service. The NBA believes this group will continue to demonstrate the same skills, leadership and commitment that led the selection committee to select this group of 40,” Moore said.
