Veena Viswanatha, attorney at Buckley Sandler LLP, have been named to Lawyers of Color’s Second Annual Hot List, which recognizes early- to mid-career minority attorneys working as in-house counsel, government attorneys, and law firm associates and partners. The firm is very pleased to have them named to this exceptional group.

Honorees will be profiled in Lawyers Of Color’s Hot List 2014 Issue (July 2014). The Mid-Atlantic Region honorees will also be feted at a reception hosted by Foley & Lardner on July 22nd. The Honorable George J. Hazel, U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland will offer remarks at the event.

The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process. The selection committee spent months reviewing nominations and researching bar association publications and legal blogs in order to identify promising candidates. Nominations from mentors, peers, and colleagues were accepted. The selection committee also made editorial picks of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments, especially those active in legal pipeline initiatives.
