BURTON AWARDS FOR LEGAL ACHIEVEMENT Brian Rubin and Christian Cannon were honored with the 2006 Burton Award for Legal Achievement for their article, “The House That the Regulators Built: An Analysis of Whether Respondents Should Litigate Against NASD,” published in the Bureau of National Affairs’ Securities Regulation & Litigation Report last May. Rubin is a partner and Cannon an associate at Sutherland Asbill & Brennan. The Burton Awards, now in their seventh year, were established by William Burton, a lawyer and author of The Legal Thesaurus, to promote and reward the refinement and enrichment of good legal writing. Winners were selected by an academic committee composed of educators from the law schools of Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania and leading members of the legal profession and the judiciary. Rubin, a former deputy chief counsel with the National Association of Securities Dealers’ enforcement department, and Cannon, a former NASD registered representative, reviewed five years of disciplinary proceedings and found fraud respondents represented by counsel were successful in getting lower sanctions 60 percent of the time.
