Michael Sahn Attends the Burton Awards for Legal Achievement
Founding partner Michael Sahn traveled to Washington, D.C. on June 11th to attend The Burton Awards for Legal Achievement. In its thirteenth year, The Burton Awards recognizes and rewards legal scholarship, writing and achievements in the law by partners and counsel from the nation’s law firms, members of the Judiciary and legal educators. The honoree of this year’s awards was Justice John Paul Stevens (retired).
A new segment of this years program, “Point/Counterpoint,” featured a spirited debate between two distinguished attorneys on the Health Care Mandate in advance of the United States Supreme Court’s historical ruling on the Affordable Care Act. To learn more, visit
