Foley Partner Thomas Shriner, Jr. was awarded the 2015 American Inns of Court Professionalism Award for the Seventh Circuit. The award was presented to Shriner by Chief Judge Diane P. Wood at the Seventh Circuit’s Annual Judicial Conference.
Shriner was recognized for his substantial experience in the bankruptcy courts and for litigating disputes involving business acquisitions, shareholders, trade secrets, non-compete agreements, lender liability and loan participations. In addition, he was named Milwaukee’s Bet-the-Company 2015 Litigator of the Year by Best Lawyers.
The American Inns of Court Professionalism Awards are awarded in participating federal circuits to a lawyer or judge whose life and practice display sterling character, unquestioned integrity, and dedication to the highest standards of the legal profession and the rule of law.
Recipients are selected from circuit-wide nominations by representatives from the circuit and the American Inns of Court. The award is presented at the circuit's judicial conference and recipients will be recognized in October at the 2015 American Inns of Court Celebration of Excellence at the Supreme Court of the United States with the Honorable Elena Kagan as host.
