Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - 08:30

At the annual meeting of the Primary Law Firms and Preferred Service Providers of DuPont, New York-based Leader & Berkon LLP was the recipient of a Challenge Award for “effective and efficient representation of DuPont and its interests year after year.”   Recognizing only two of the company’s law firms, Thomas Sager, senior vice president and general counsel of DuPont, presented the award  for “extraordinary contributions and accomplishments that have advanced the objectives of the DuPont Legal Model” in 2013.  

Leader & Berkon was recognized not only for its representation of DuPont, but also for its “leadership and support of DuPont Legal initiatives, and its adherence to the highest ideals of the DuPont Legal Model.”  This is the sixth time that the firm received a Challenge Award.

Leader & Berkon, selected as a member of the company’s network in 1993, received a measure of national attention rare for law firms – and unprecedented for a firm of its size – when it was profiled in The Wall Street Journal for its nimble approach, unconventional practices and membership in the network.
