Cablefax’s Top Lawyers Awards Dinner

March 22 at 6 p.m. | The National Press Club, Washington D.C.

Join Cablefax at the legendary National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on March 22 as we celebrate the industry’s incredible legal minds honored in our inaugural Top Lawyers Awards Program.

We invite the law firms and companies that helped shape these attorneys into the influential forces they are today to bring their rising stars and other team members to help us celebrate this amazing group of leaders. Meet the Cablefax editors. Network with your colleagues. Share war stories. And, of course, help us salute the best of the best as we recognize the power of sober counsel in an increasingly chaotic business environment.

Newly added: Frank Sesno, author of “Ask More,” will join Michael Grebb, Cablefax publisher, for an engaging fireside chat. Attendees will receive a copy of Sesno’s book as well!
