Aimee Fukuchi Bryant named to Lawyers of Color's Second Annual Hot ListPrint PDF
Aimee Fukuchi Bryant, an associate in the firm’s Trusts and Estates Department, has 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, or law firm associates and partners, who are excelling in the legal profession. Honorees will be profiled in Lawyers of Color’s Hot List 2014 Issue in late July, and a reception honoring the selected attorneys from the Eastern Region will be held on July 17 in New York.
The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process, including a selection committee comprised of the editorial staff, fellows, and advisers, who spent months reviewing nominations and researching bar association publications and legal blogs in order to identify promising candidates. In addition, nominations from mentors, peers, and colleagues were accepted. Editorial picks were also based on research of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments, giving special attention to candidates who were active in diversity pipeline initiatives.
Lawyers of Color was initially founded as On Being A Black Lawyer but now also produces publications for lawyers of South Asian American, Pacific Asian American, Hispanic, and Native American heritage, and a core mission is the promotion of exceptional minority lawyers on their social media platforms.
