Lynn Swanson Honored With 2014 “Leadership in Law” Award

New Orleans CityBusiness recently honored Lynn Swanson with one of fifty Leadership in Law awards at a cocktail reception held at the New Orleans Museum of Art on March 24. Selection for the award is based upon the nominee’s accomplishments both professionally and within the community and considers attorneys working in the greater New Orleans area.

Now the Managing Member of Jones, Swanson, Huddell & Garrison, Lynn Swansonjoined the firm in 2004, at which time she helped to establish the Commercial Litigation practice. Since then, her legal work has included leading the firm’s response to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, helping to pursue claims for clients who have not been made whole by BP as a result of that disaster, and contributing her professional experience to the landmark litigation filed by JonesSwanson on behalf of the SLFPA-E.

In addition to her professional accomplishments, Lynn contributes significantly to the community. When she’s not representing children in need of care through the Pro Bono Project or providing legal services to the homeless through the HELP program, she manages the firm’s donations to charitable organizations such as St. Andrew’s Village, Second Harvest, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Volunteers of America, the organization through which she and her husband adopted their two children.

Congratulations to Lynn, and may everyone continue to benefit from her leadership in law in 2014!
