The National Law Journal has honored William Lee, WilmerHale’s Co-Managing Partner, Partner Ronald Machen, and former WilmerHale Partner and current President of NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, John Payton, to its list of “The 50 Most Influential Minority Lawyers in America.”

The National Law Journal’s search for the “most influential minority lawyers in America” was held to identify those who have “demonstrated the power to change the law, shape public affairs, launch industries and get big things done.” Honorees were selected based on readers nominations and The National Law Journal’s own research. Nominations were accepted for candidates who have had a national impact in their legal fields and beyond during the past five years.
