General Counsel and In-House Awards

While the day-to-day work of the GC and the in-house counsel is typically performed outside of the public eye, sometimes a deserving one is recognized for exceptional work.

GCs in Texas and legal departments in the DC Metro area were recently honored.

The Dallas Business Journal has named the recipients of its “Best General Counsel Awards” for 2005. These awards are divided into 10 different categories, and provide an interesting glimpse into the varied “practices” of these notable GCs.

It is also inspiring to learn about GCs like Nathan Moore and Deborah Wright who take seriously their responsibilities in the areas of diversity and civic activity.

In the nation’s capital, the Washington Metropolitan Area Corporate Counsel Association also presented five awards to deserving GCs and legal departments, the latter of which included Choice Hotels International and Sodexho, Inc., who shared the Outstanding Community Service Award.

Congratulations all.
