Margaret Peloso Selected as ABA Top 40 Young Lawyer

Published: 07-17-2017

Vinson & Elkins counsel Margaret Peloso has been selected as a 2017 American Bar Association “On the Rise – Top 40 Young Lawyer.” The award is given by the ABA Young Lawyers Division to 40 members who exemplify a broad range of high achievement, innovation, vision, leadership and legal and community service.

A counsel in V&E’s Washington D.C. office, Peloso focuses on environmental law and climate change. She is noted for her creation of one of the most comprehensive climate change practices in the country, drawn in part upon her doctoral work on sea level rise adaptation while at Duke University.

Her practice includes providing advice on climate change regulations, working to shape climate change policy and guiding clients on preparing for the physical impacts of climate change. In recognition of her work in this space, Peloso has been the only associate recognized by Chambers USA as a “Star Associate” in Nationwide Climate Change for the past two years.

The American Bar Association is known as one of the world’s largest voluntary professional organizations that is committed to serving their members, improving the legal profession, eliminating bias and enhancing diversity and advancing the rule of law throughout the United States and around the world.
