Kathleen M. Sullivan Named Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient by the New York Law Journal


New York partner Kathleen Sullivan has been honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the New York Law Journal as part of its 2015 focus on “Lawyers Who Lead by Example.” These awards recognize true leaders—attorneys who have consistently risen to the top and elevated the legal profession. Ms. Sullivan was recognized for her lengthy service on the faculty of two prestigious law schools, Harvard and Stanford, as well as her groundbreaking work as Dean of Stanford Law School, and her work as a leading appellate advocate in private practice. The publication also cited her role as the first and still only female name partner among the Am Law 100 law firms and her potential candidacy for the U.S. Supreme Court. According to the New York Law Journal, colleagues say “[s]he is great to work with, very smart, unfailingly gracious, superb in court and an all-around outstanding member of the bar” and that “[s]he’s mastered and conquered the world of academia, and she mastered and conquered the world of litigation too.”
