Minneapolis Co-Managing Partner Alana Bassin was named as one of the "2015 Attorneys of the Year" by Minnesota Lawyer. Recognizing the best in the Minnesota legal profession, the award is given based on criteria such as leadership in professional associations, involvement in major cases and significant service to the public.
Alana received this prestigious recognition for her accomplishments both in and out of the courtroom. As a fierce trial attorney representing Fortune 500 companies in product liability litigation across the country, she has served as local and national counsel defending individual and mass tort actions involving high-exposure catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. She volunteers as a board member with WomenWinning and is a vocal advocate for diversity and inclusion through her role as a chairperson of the firm's Diversity Committee and as an inaugural fellow of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity.
An award ceremony honoring Alana and her fellow recipients will take place on the evening of February 18, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis.
We congratulate Alana and all of the individuals recognized as Minnesota Lawyer's "2015 Attorneys of the Year."
