Each year, the BADC and the Foundation of the BADC hosts our Annual Banquet and Awards Gala and celebrates the achievements of lawyers and judges in the District of Columbia. On December 1, the 147th Annual Banquet & Gala was held at The City Club Atrium.
The Young Lawyers’ Section awarded Jeremy Peterman of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, and his Co-Chair colleagues of Legal Aid’s Generous Associates Campaign, Young Lawyer of the Year for exemplary professional and public service achievement. Debra S. Katz of Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLP, a ground-breaking pioneer in Woman’s and Sexual Harassment Law, was the recipient of the Hon. Annice M. Wagner Pioneer Award.
Makan Delrahim, the United States Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division, was honored as Lawyer of the Year, and Honorable Eric T. Washington, retired Chief Judge of the D.C. Court of Appeals, was honored as Judge of the Year for his exceptional record of leadership and service to our city and our country.
The gala attendees enjoyed cocktails, dinner and dancing until the wee hours of the morning; and a good time was had by all. The BADC extends its appreciation and congratulations again to all of the 2018 honorees!
