White & Case partners Kevin Petrasic, Benjamin Saul and George L. Paul (Washington, DC), and Steven R. Chabinsky (New York), have been named recipients of the 2018 Law360 Distinguished Legal Writing Award, formerly known as the Burton Award, which recognizes outstanding legal writing published in the prior year. White & Case has won a Burton Award every year since 2001, and remains the only firm to be recognized consistently for the past 17 years.
Petrasic, Saul, Paul and Chabinsky were honored for their article "Managing AI Risk in Financial Services," published by Bloomberg BNA Privacy & Security Law Report, August 21, 2017.
The awards are run in association with the Library of Congress, presented by lead sponsor Law360 and co-sponsored by the American Bar Association. Winners were selected by an expert panel from nominations submitted by the 1,000 largest law firms in the United States, and will be formally presented with their Law360 Distinguished Legal Writing Awards on May 21.
William Burton, Founder and Chair of the awards program, said "The winners are outstanding, highly skilled, and effective writers, and the competition was acutely keen. The Law360 writing award winners have now attained a new and even higher standard of excellence.
