WilmerHale Lawyers Take their Place Among DC Bar Leadership

July 13, 2007

In the latest DC Bar Association elections, WilmerHale lawyers were awarded two of the three available seats representing the District in the ABA House of Delegates as well as a seat on the Administrative Law and Agency Practice Steering Committee.

John Payton and Ryan Phair were both declared winners of seats on the DC Bar House of Delegates. The House of Delegates is the principal place where the association makes policy and sets the goals. Representatives of all the constituent parts of the local bar and affiliated organizations come together to debate and consider professional and public policy matters in order to develop and express an association point of view.

Jonathan Cedarbaum won a seat on the Administrative Law and Agency Practice Steering Committee, a position he will hold for three years. The steering committees plan programs, both educational and social, for the practice areas. Steering committee members are “among the most dynamic participants in the District’s legal community,” according to the DC Bar Association.
