May 18, 2022


LOS ANGELES—May 18, 2022—O’Melveny managing counsel David Lash has been named to the Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2022 list of “Top 100 Lawyers,” which recognizes the accomplishments of the region’s most impactful attorneys.

The Los Angeles Business Journal described Lash as a “leader in the public interest community” who has “devoted his career to using the law to fight poverty and advance the causes of the underserved.”

The publication also highlighted Lash’s belief in the judicial branch’s power to “preserve the basic necessities of life for those in need, understanding that access to justice is meaningless without representation by competent, compassionate counsel.”

Lash serves as O’Melveny’s Managing Counsel for Pro Bono and Public Interest Services and helped launched the firm’s Pro Bono Initiative, which has received the American Bar Association’s prestigious Pro Bono Publico Award, the Rose L. Schiff Commitment to Justice Award, and the Beacon of Justice Award from the National Legal Aid and Defender Association, among others.
