Sutherland's Lewis S. Wiener Elected to Board of Washington Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs

June 8, 2004

WASHINGTON (June 8, 2004) – Sutherland Asbill & Brennan is pleased to announce that Lewis S. Wiener has been elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Washington Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs.  Mr. Wiener is a partner in the firm's Litigation Group.

Mr. Wiener focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, internal investigations and corporate compliance matters, eminent domain/inverse condemnation and land use litigation before state and federal trial and appellate courts.  Mr. Wiener received his B.A., cum laude, from the State University of New York at Albany and his J.D. from the American University Washington College of Law, where he was Managing Editor of the American University Journal of International Law and Policy.

Mr. Wiener is a past President of the Court of Federal Claims Bar Association and currently serves as the Association's Treasurer.  He is also a judicially-appointed member of the Court of Federal Claims Advisory Council.  Mr. Wiener regularly lectures on 5th Amendment takings and land use law, litigation strategy and trial practice issues.

The Washington Lawyers' Committee was formed after the publication of the Report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, which had identified discrimination and poverty as the root causes of the riots that erupted in cities around the nation during the late 1960's, and in Washington, D.C. in April 1968 following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The hallmark of the Committee has always been its ability to mobilize the resources of the private bar to address injustice and inequality.

Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP is a national law firm known for solving challenging business problems and resolving unique legal issues for many of the nation's largest companies.  Founded in 1924, the firm has grown to more than 375 lawyers with offices in Atlanta, Austin, Houston, New York, Tallahassee and Washington.  For further information about the firm, please visit sutherland.com.
