Sutherland Partner W. Henry Parkman elected to the American Law Institute

March 23, 2009

ATLANTA (March 23, 2009) – Sutherland partner W. Henry Parkman has been elected as a member of the American Law Institute (ALI). He was nominated by current members of ALI and selected on the basis of professional achievement and demonstrated interest in improving the law.

“We congratulate Henry on this achievement," said John H. Fleming, partner and co-chair of Sutherland’s Litigation Practice. “This distinction recognizes his many contributions to the legal community."

The American Law Institute was founded in 1923 in order for legal professionals to discuss and attend to the seemingly complex nature of the law at the time. Today, ALI serves the same general purpose: to decipher the details and change the landscape of American law through research and reform. ALI’s elected membership consists of judges, lawyers, and law teachers from all areas of the United States and from many foreign countries.

Mr. Parkman has more than 20 years of experience in resolving construction disputes of all types. He has tried cases before judges, juries and arbitrators and has successfully conducted numerous mediations on a wide variety of construction disputes and issues. Mr. Parkman has successfully handled numerous appeals in state and federal appellate courts, as well as a variety of other commercial disputes, including public procurement cases presenting constitutional issues.
