Dania Slim of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP Selected as One of ABI's 2020 "40 Under 40"
Alexandria, Va.— ABI announces that Dania Slim of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP (Miami) has been selected as one of ABI’s “40 Under 40,” ABI’s annual program that recognizes 40 of the top insolvency industry professionals under the age of 40. Honorees will be recognized at a special virtual ceremony on February 18, 2021.
Slim is insolvency and restructuring counsel in the firm’s Miami and Palm Beach offices, where she focuses on maximizing value for clients in both in- and out-of-court restructurings. Recognized as a “Rising Star” by Law360, she represents debtors, creditors and other parties in interest (including asset-purchasers) in bankruptcy cases across a broad range of industries. A significant portion of Slim's practice also focuses on Latin America, and she combines her legal skills with her native Spanish-speaking ability to help bridge language and cultural barriers with the firm’s Latin American clients. She received her J.D. from The George Washington University Law School in 2008 and her B.A. cum laude from Florida International University in 2005.
“Accomplished in both their careers and communities, the 2020 class of honorees is an inspiration for the future of the insolvency community,” said ABI Executive Director Amy Quackenboss. “We look forward to collaborating with this diverse collection of young leaders in the full range of ABI's activities to advance the profession.”
The “40 Under 40” winners are distinguished by professional achievements and service and were selected by a group of experienced professionals from ABI’s current leadership. Nominations were submitted earlier this year by the candidates themselves or by colleagues via the initiative’s website, http://abi40under40.org. More than 200 candidates, each with outstanding records of professional achievement and community leadership, were evaluated by 20 judges. The majority of the applicants were partners, directors or managing directors at their firms.
