The Birmingham Bar Association recently honored Balch’s late Partner Susan B. Livingston with the Nina Miglionico “Paving the Way” Leadership Award. This noteworthy award was established in 2005 by the Women Lawyers Section of the Birmingham Bar Association to recognize and honor individuals who have actively paved the way to success and advancement for women lawyers. Brandon N. Robinson, attorney in the firm’s Energy Section, and Teresa Minor, partner in the firm’s Product Liability & Casualty Litigation Practice Group, shared remarks at the event. Members of Susan’s family also attended the event.

Ms. Livingston was a beloved partner, mentor and friend who is greatly missed by Balch and the legal community. Her leadership helped to develop the firm’s culture through her tireless dedication to her clients, attorneys and staff, playing a vital role in leading Balch’s diversity committee and creating an influential mentoring program, which has shaped many young attorneys.
