Three Chicago attorneys are among the legal professionals named to the LGBT Bar's 40 Best LGBTQ+ Lawyers Under 40.
Jones Day associate Caitlin K. Cahow, Clark Hill PLC associate Logan Parker and Locke Lord LLP partner Julie C. Webb are on this year's list.
In a statement, the organization said, "The Bar is proud that the final full class of 2021 winners reflects our organizational commitment to supporting and lifting up nominees who, in addition to being excellent LGBTQ+ lawyers, fairly represent identities of our most marginalized populations, including transgender and non-binary people, people of color, bisexual people, people with disabilities and women."
The 40 attorneys will be honored at the 2021 Annual Lavender Law Conference & Career Fair, which will take place virtually July 28-30.
