White & Case LLP partner Carolyn Lamm has been named "Lawyer of the Americas" by the Inter-American Law Review (IALR), published by the University of Miami School of Law. Lamm will be honored at IALR's 30th annual banquet, which will be held on Friday, March 30, 2012.
"As a University of Miami School of Law graduate who has an international practice often in Latin America, it is truly an honor to be recognized by the IALR, and I am proud to join a long list of accomplished fellow alumni," Lamm said.
"Ms. Lamm's accomplishments as an internationally renowned arbitrator and president of the American Bar Association complement and enhance the prestige of the Lawyer of the Americas award. The Inter-American Law Review is honored that Ms. Lamm has accepted the 2012 nomination," said Lacee Monk, Managing Editor of the Inter-American Law Review.
Each year, the IALR names an attorney or academician who has made significant contributions to the field of international and inter-American law to its Lawyer of the Americas listing. Past recipients of the IALR award include the Honorable Adalberto Jordan, who was recently elevated to the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, Miguel Zaldivar, and Jose Astigarraga.
A litigator in White & Case's Washington, DC, office, Lamm is a past president of the American Bar Association. She is a prominent practitioner in international arbitration, trade matters and cross-border commercial federal court litigation and is the recipient of numerous awards. In 2011, she was named one of the "100 Most Powerful Women" in Washington, DC, by Washingtonian Magazine. The National Law Journal named her among its 2011 "Most Influential Lawyers," and Legal Times named her among its "Visionaries" in 2010 for her role as president in leading the American Bar Association.
