WASHINGTON, D.C.—Andrew J. Pincus of Mayer Brown LLC received the 2014 Research & Policy Award at the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s (ILR) 15th Annual Legal Reform Summit today for his cutting-edge contributions to those fields.
Pincus is one of the country’s foremost litigators, having argued 23 cases in the U.S. Supreme Court. Additionally, he briefs and argues cases in federal and state appellate courts, develops legal strategy for trial courts, and testifies in front of Congress, state legislatures, and regulatory agencies.
“We are very pleased to acknowledge Andy’s leadership with our Research & Policy Award,” said Lisa A. Rickard, president of ILR. “His creative and thoughtful policy analysis has been invaluable to ILR’s program during the past decade.”
In particular, ILR recognized Pincus’s development of research on issues including class actions, securities litigation, patent reform, and serial enforcement that have made major impacts on policy development.
The annual Legal Reform Awards honor individuals and organizations whose outstanding work has contributed to reforming America’s civil justice system.
