Bradley is pleased to announce that Lee-Ann C. Brown, Douglas L. Patin, and Henry C. Su have been recognized by the Virginia Access to Justice Commission for their pro bono service. Honorees will be recognized at the Chief Justice’s Pro Bono Summit on June 9, 2022, hosted by the Virginia Bar Association.
Ms. Brown, an associate in the firm’s D.C. office, has been named a 2020-2021 Pro Bono Service Champion by the Commission. The prestigious award is reserved for the top Virginia attorneys reporting the highest number of pro bono hours. Ms. Brown completed more than 575 pro bono hours last year. Mr. Patin and Mr. Su have been named 2020-2021 Pro Bono Service Honor Roll members for contributing more than 40 hours of pro bono service last year.
“These attorneys have made tremendous strides in providing pro bono service and working to promote access to justice in the Virginia community, and we are proud of their significant contributions,” said Bradley Pro Bono Counsel Tiffany M. Graves.
Ms. Brown focuses her practice on construction and government contracts, representing general contractors, subcontractors, and owners, in both the prosecution and defense of claims on public and private construction projects. She has significant experience litigating claims surrounding the construction and improvement of highways/infrastructure, new embassy compounds and other secured federal buildings, as well as the large-scale remodeling of federal buildings.
Mr. Patin, managing partner of the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, has an extensive government contracts and construction litigation practice. He regularly works across the spectrum of traditional government contract disputes and has developed additional experience in claims, appeals, bid protests, international arbitration, insurance coverage, federal fraud and False Claims Act issues.
Mr. Su has more than 20 years of experience litigating disputes involving antitrust, intellectual property, and technology. He worked with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission for more than six years, providing counsel and representation in matters involving government agencies and government relations, as well as serving as a trial lawyer in the Bureau of Competition’s Litigation Group and as a competition advisor.
The Virginia Access to Justice Commission was established in 2013 by the Supreme Court of Virginia to promote equal access to justice, focusing on the civil needs of Virginia residents. The commission identified increasing the bar’s participation in pro bono among its priorities, bringing together judges, lawyers, and representatives from legal aid and social services, to make the courts more accessible for all citizens.
