Busniess Law Section's 2010 Award Recipients

The Business Law Section is pleased to announce the following 2010 annual award recipients. These awards will be presented at the Section’s Annual Dinner on January 25, 2011 at the Westin Hotel.

Former Bar Chancellor, and 2001 Business Law Section Committee Chair of the Year, Jane Leslie Dalton will receive the Dennis H. Replansky Memorial Award. Dennis Replansky, a former Business Law Section Chair, passed away in 1994 at the age of 51 and was among the Bar’s most esteemed and beloved members. In 1997, the Section established the Award in recognition of his career as a lawyer and his contributions to legal, civic, religious and other charitable causes. Jane Dalton, through her years of accomplishments and service, continues the line of award recipients who exemplify the abilities and qualities that honor Dennis Replansky’s memory, and whose lives are exemplars to other lawyers.

The 2010 Chair of the Year is Graham R. Laub. Gray was Chair of both the Mergers & Acquisitions Committee and the Securities Regulation Committee. His commitment, leadership and industry are deeply appreciated by the Section and by those who have directly benefitted from the many programs offered by those Committees.

The 2010 Committee of the Year is the Antitrust Committee, chaired by Gerard A. Dever. The Committee has put on a series of fascinating and well attended seminars that are a genuine boon to the Antitrust Bar. The Section is enriched by such an active and productive committee.
