DALLAS, August 24, 2015: Litigation partner and Appellate co-chair Allyson Ho has been named one of three nominees for Texas Lawyer’s inaugural “Attorney of the Year” award. The award recognizes lawyers and judges whose work in 2014 had a distinct impact on the law and the legal profession in Texas.
Ms. Ho's representation of M&G Polymers in the case M&G Polymers v. Tackett marked her first argument before the US Supreme Court, and it was the first of two appearances she made before the High Court within three weeks in the fall of 2014. Ms. Ho was the only female lawyer from a private firm to argue more than one case at the US Supreme Court this past term.
The Attorney of the Year award will be presented at an event in Houston on November 2.
