Foley Hoag Attorney Von Bryant Named to Lawyers of Color 2014 "Hot List"

July 17, 2014

Foley Hoag LLP associate Von Bryant has been named to Lawyers of Color's (LOC) Second Annual Hot List, which recognizes early- to mid-career attorneys who are excelling in the legal profession. Award recipients were honored at a reception held in New York City on July 17.

Attorneys appearing on the Hot List were selected by a committee made up of LOC editors, staff and advisers who reviewed nominations and researched bar publications and legal blogs to determine prospective candidates. Consideration was also based on research that singled out attorneys who had made notable professional accomplishments and were active in diversity initiatives.

Bryant maintains a general business practice, advising private and public companies on a wide range of corporate matters including venture capital and start-up company work, mergers and acquisitions, financings, securities and other strategic business transactions. He also advises pro-bono clients on nonprofit, legislative and historical preservation matters. Bryant is a member of the Boston Bar Association and Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association, and also serves as a member and mentor for the Boston Lawyers Group, an organization committed to promoting diversity in Boston’s legal community.

Foley Hoag attorneys have frequently appeared on the Lawyers of Color Hot List. Most recently, litigation associate Shrutih Tewarie was recognized in 2013.

Established in 2008, Lawyers of Color Inc. aims to promote the causes and contributions of minority attorneys. With a national reach, LOC has received recognition from the American Bar Association, Thomas Reuters, the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Black Law Students Association.
