The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), a global legal association representing more than 40,000 in-house counsel employed by over 10,000 organizations in 85 countries, announced winners of its fifth annual ‘Top 10 30-Somethings’ awards at its Corporate Counsel University (CCU) in San Diego.
Rustam Juma, SABA Toronto Vice President and Legal Counsel at Deloitte LLP in Toronto, was one of the recipients of this year’s award. Sponsored by Saul Ewing, LLP, the award program distinguishes the outstanding achievements of in-house counsel between the ages of 30 and 39. Nominations are based on the individual’s contributions to the legal department, company, or organization, as well as the depth and context of their participation in efforts to advance advocacy, pro bono and community service work, and diversity in the legal profession.
The winners have made remarkable contributions to their corporate law departments and the in-house counsel community at large, truly raising the bar for the next generation of in-house counsel,” said Veta T. Richardson, president and CEO of ACC. “By having innovative approaches to challenges and opportunities, these individuals have paved the way for future corporate lawyers to build upon such superior client service.”
