White & Case partners Christopher Curran (Washington, DC) and Carolyn Lamm (Washington, DC) have been named "2013-2014 Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America" by the legal guide Lawdragon. The Lawdragon 500 is chosen from a combination of submission from law firms, votes and comments through Lawdragon 500's online voting form and its own editorial research.
