Grace Speights, whose labor and employment-focused work in 2018 made her an ally of the #MeToo movement, was named the Attorney of the Year at the American Lawyer Industry Awards on Wednesday night.

Speights’ fellow finalists were Bill Deckelman, the general counsel of DXC Technology Co. whose partnership with UnitedLex reimagined how legal departments can work, and David Sanford, the chairman of class action firm Sanford Heisler Sharp who has brought gender bias claims against large law firms on behalf of female partners who felt they were given short shrift.
