The National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) honored Lim Ruger with its 2015 Law Firm MVP Award at its Annual Meeting held this year in Hollywood, California. NAMWOLF selected Lim Ruger from a pool of very qualified nominees for the firm’s great passion and commitment to advancing full diversity and inclusion in the legal profession by championing NAMWOLF’s vision and exemplifying shared ideals of excellence, equality, commitment, collaboration and passion.
Rick Hammond, Senior Associate General Counsel of Walmart, presented the award and introduced Lim Ruger as a firm that has “lived and breathed diversity and inclusion since their founding.” He also recognized the firm for its active involvement and promotion of NAMWOLF, for its role in advancing women lawyers, for having firm members as leaders in a number of diversity-based organizations, and for the firm having focus on “pipelines, focusing on lawyers before they’re lawyers through scholarships for law students.”
Sandy Sakamoto, partner at Lim Ruger and member of the board of directors at NAMWOLF, graciously accepted this prestigious award at the NAMWOLF Gala Awards Dinner on September 18. “We are honored and thrilled to be recognized by an organization we feel passionate about and a vision we embrace,” she remarked in accepting the award.
