Legal media company Lawdragon has named White & Case partner Carolyn Lamm (Washington, DC) to the 2019 Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America "Hall of Fame."
According to Lawdragon, Hall of Fame inductees are a "permanent group of honorees" whose stature entitles them to a lifetime listing in the Lawdragon 500, a compendium of leading American lawyers. The lawyers in the Lawdragon 500 are selected through a process combining law firm submissions, votes and comments made through Lawdragon's online voting form, and Lawdragon's own editorial research.
Lamm regularly serves as lead counsel in high-stakes, cutting-edge international arbitration cases involving international corporations and sovereign clients. She advises clients in matters with ICSID and its Additional Facility, and in other international arbitral proceedings involving states, as well as commercial arbitral fora including AAA/CDR, ICC, Vienna Centre, Stockholm Chamber and Swiss Chamber. She is Chairman of the Board of the American Uzbek Chamber of Commerce, Vice President of the American Bar Endowment and an Emeritus member of the Council of the American Law Institute. Lamm was appointed by President Bill Clinton to the US Panel and later by the Government of Uzbekistan to the Uzbek Panel of Arbitrators for ICSID arbitration. A member of the Governing Board of ICCA, she is a past president of both the District of Columbia Bar and the American Bar Association, and recently finished a term as the American Bar Association's Representative to the International Bar Association.
