The 27th Annual AALAM Banquet will be held on Tuesday, April 19, starting at
6 pm, at China Pearl Restaurant. A networking cocktail hour will run from 6 pm
to 7 pm, followed by a Chinese banquet.
The evening's key note speaker will be Lisa A. Wong, the Mayor of Fitchburg.
Mayor Wong is the first minority mayor of Fitchburg and the first Asian-American
woman to be elected mayor in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Prior to being
elected mayor at the age of 28, Mayor Wong served as the Executive Director of
the Fitchburg Redevelopment Authority.
AALAM will also present its Founders Award at the Annual Banquet, which is
awarded annually to an Asian-American attorney who has made significant
contributions in business, academics or the community as it relates to the law.
This year, the Founders Award recipient will be Mr. William F. Lee, Co-Managing
Partner of WilmerHale LLP. Mr. Lee specializes in intellectual property and
commercial litigation and has been recognized consistently for his outstanding
achievements in his legal practice. Among his many stellar accomplishments, Mr.
Lee is internationally recognized as a leader in intellectual property and he is
a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Mr. Lee is also the first
Asian-American managing partner of an AmLaw 100 law firm.
Finally, we will also award the AALAM Scholarship to a deserving law student
who has demonstrated both academic excellence and a commitment to the
Asian-American community. This year, we are thrilled to announce that our AALAM
Scholarship is generously sponsored by Mercedes-Benz.
