Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 30, 2007
The American Bar Association comprises the largest association of attorneys in the world and is organized in a system of substantive Sections, Divisions and underlying Committees. At the American Bar Association's 2007 Annual Meeting in San Francisco last August, attorney Aaron Lovaas, a principal in the Las Vegas law firm of Shimon & Lovaas, A Professional Corporation, was named Chair of the Solo and Small Firm Committee of the ABA's Section of Business Law's Young Lawyer Forum (YLF). Now, a mere three months later, Lovaas has been appointed Vice Chair of the entire Young Lawyer Forum, a group of over seven thousand members. The Forum's purpose and mission is to integrate young lawyers into the substantive work of the larger Section of Business Law. While Lovaas' work in the Young Lawyer Forum is a function of the Forum's age criteria (under 40), Lovaas has been practicing law in Nevada for over twelve years. He concentrates his practice in the area of business-related litigation, representing night clubs and entertainment venues, corporations, business owners, banks, construction companies, land developers, insurance companies and individuals from every walk of life.
In addition to assuming the position of Vice Chair of the Forum, Lovaas will also moderate a panel discussion at the Spring Meeting of the Section of Business Law in Dallas, Texas, this April. The program will focus on client development within the solo and small firm environment and will be open to attendance by all of the over ten thousand expected to attend the meeting.
Lovaas has the distinction of being the first Vice Chair of the Young Lawyer Forum to be directly appointed to the position, rather than working through the traditional and more time consuming track. The appointment required the approval of higher levels of ABA leadership.
"Obviously, I am thrilled that I would be appointed to this higher level of leadership in the YLF so soon," remarks Lovaas. "I am excited to represent the Forum and to reach out to its members in helping them achieve their goals within the ABA."
