Orlando partner Benjamin Elliott and associate Erin Tuck, both members of the firm’s Business Litigation Practice Group, have been elected to board positions with the Orlando Chapter of the Federal Bar Association (FBA). With terms that began on October 1, Ben is serving as President-Elect, while Erin is serving as a Director At-Large.
The Federal Bar Association (FBA), founded in 1920, is dedicated to the advancement of the science of jurisprudence and to promoting the welfare, interests, education, and professional development of all attorneys involved in federal law. Their members run the gamut of federal practice: attorneys practicing in small to large legal firms, attorneys in corporations and federal agencies, and members of the judiciary. The FBA is the catalyst for communication between the bar and the bench, as well as the private and public sectors.
The Orlando Chapter of the Federal Bar Association is an organization committed to the interests, education, and professional development of all federal court practitioners. Membership in the Orlando Chapter gives attorneys access to events, including CLE seminars, brown bag luncheons with local judges and federal agency heads, the annual morning at the federal courthouse for young lawyers, and marquee events such as the State of the District Luncheon. These events draw together the range of our Chapter’s members, including practitioners from firms of all sizes, government lawyers, in-house corporate counsel, and members of the federal judiciary.
