Alston & Bird partner Shiraz Tangri, a member of the firm’s Environmental & Land Development Group and based in its Los Angeles office, was presented with a 2011 Best Lawyers Under 40 Award during the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association’s (NAPABA) anniversary gala at its annual convention held in Atlanta.
The award recognizes talented individuals within the Asian Pacific American (APA) legal community under the age of 40 who have achieved prominence and distinction in their areas of law while demonstrating an unwavering dedication to the APA community.
“Shiraz has proven to be a dedicated advocate of both the law and the community, and the recognition of his efforts by the NAPABA is well-deserved,” said John Latham, the diversity partner for Alston & Bird.
Tangri serves as co-chair of the Pro Bono and Community Service Committee of the NAPABA. He also serves as chair of Alston & Bird’s Southern California Pro Bono and Political Strategies Committees. In April, the Daily Journal named Shiraz as one of California’s Top 25 Land-Use Leaders.
The NAPABA is the national association of Asian Pacific American attorneys, judges, law professors and law students, representing the interests of over 40,000 attorneys and 63 local Asian Pacific bar associations.
