Lawdragon Names Lash to 500 Leading Lawyers, Coleman to Hall of FameMay 08, 2017
O'Melveny's David Lash has been selected to the 2017 Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America list. This year’s 500 reflects the turmoil and uncertainty of the past year, wrapped around the lawyers and judges who define our rights, our property, and our futures. Academics, activists, and private lawyers alike are aligned to protect our rights, in court, at the border, wherever human rights and dignity are threatened.
In addition, the Lawdragon Hall of Fame celebrates lawyers whose mark on the legal profession is indelible. This year the publication has chosen 45 additional “lions of the law” as new inductees into the Hall of Fame, including O’Melveny’s late William T. Coleman.
Lash is the Managing Counsel for Pro Bono and Public Interest Services, overseeing the firm’s national and international pro bono program. O’Melveny senior partner Coleman carved out a unique legacy that spans the legal profession, the corporate world, national politics, and international relations. He passed away March 31, 2017.
