The OCBA is pleased to announce that OCBA Board Member Christina Zabat-Fran, General Counsel of St. John Knits, was named a winner of the 'Top 10 30-Somethings' awards by The Association of Corporate Counsel. The ACC is a global legal association representing more than 42,000 in-house counsel employed by over 10,000 organizations in 85 countries.
The award program distinguishes the outstanding achievements of in-house counsel between the ages of 30 and 39. Nominations are based on the individual's contributions to the corporate law department, company, or organization, as well as the depth and context of their participation in efforts to advance advocacy, pro bono, and diversity in the legal profession.
"While this year's winners work in a variety of industries, such as retail, energy, and technology, they are united in their distinguished ability to help their companies succeed through offering outstanding counsel and innovative legal solutions," said Veta T. Richardson, president and CEO of ACC. "We are delighted to see such extraordinary young lawyers within the in-house community, and we know their accomplishments and skills will advance the next generation of in-house counsel to unprecedented heights."
