Harriet Miers, former managing partner of a Locke Lord predecessor firm and former counsel to the president of the United States, has been honored with the Texas Bar Foundation’s prestigious Outstanding 50 Year Lawyer Award, commemorating her trailblazing accomplishments as a consummate legal professional and public servant. She is set to accept the award during the Texas Bar Foundation’s annual dinner June 18.

“As a remarkable lawyer deeply ingrained in public service, tireless advocate for women and diverse lawyers, champion for access to justice, tremendous mentor and an unfailingly kind person, Harriet’s embodiment of the spirit of this award cannot be overstated,” said Locke Lord chair David Taylor, in a statement by the firm. “Harriet has served as a distinguished firm and community leader for many years, and we are immensely proud to call her our colleague.”
