V&E Partner David Hawkins Inducted as President of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia

June 24, 2013
David Hawkins, a partner in Vinson & Elkins’ Washington, D.C. office, has been inducted as the 126th President of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia (BADC).

Founded in 1871, the BADC is the third-oldest bar association in the nation following the Boston City and the City of New York bar associations. David will serve as president of the BADC for the 2013 - 2014 term.

“I am honored by this opportunity to serve and grateful for the Bar’s confidence in me,” David said. “The BADC has a long and distinguished record of service to the bench, bar, and people of the District of Columbia, and I am excited to expand on that tradition in the coming year.”

David advises clients in various types of commercial litigation, with a principal focus on condemnation and land use litigation and white-collar criminal and civil litigation. His experience in the courtroom includes jury trials, injunction hearings, pretrial proceedings, and various discovery disputes. He also has assisted clients in discovery matters and has handled appeals in state and federal courts.

David is a past Treasurer-Elect and Board Member of the BADC and was honored as the 2009 - 2010 “Young Lawyer of the Year.” Among his other distinctions, David was recognized in 2012 and 2013 as a District of Columbia “Future Star” in Euromoney's Benchmark Litigation and was named a “Young Gun” in the Washington Business Journal's “Top Washington Lawyers” in 2009.

In addition to David, Yousri Omar, an associate in V&E's Government Investigations and White Collar Practice Group, was inducted as Secretary of the BADC for the 2013 - 2014 term. Yousri previously served on the BADC Board of Directors and was recently honored as the 2012 - 2013 BADC “Young Lawyer of the Year.”

Several V&E lawyers have held bar leadership roles, including partner William Lawler, head of V&E’s Government Investigations and White Collar Practice Group, who served as BADC president for the 2002 - 2003 term.
