Mark C. Alexander, Arthur J. Kania Dean of the Charles Widger School of Law, and two Villanova Law alumni were recognized by The Legal Intelligencer with its inaugural Distinguished Lawyers Award. Alums Michael J. Heller ’89, President and CEO of Cozen O’Connor, and Alan J. Hoffman ’73, Chairman and Managing Partner of Blank Rome LLP, were also selected for the honor.
The award recognizes lawyers who achieved impressive results in the past year and who demonstrated clear leadership skills. The list of 24 attorneys was gathered from outside sources and suggestions from The Legal Intelligencer’s editorial staff.
