Squire Patton Boggs partner Mark A. Salzberg has been elected to the Board of Governors of the D.C. Bar, the second largest unified bar association in the United States. The Board of Governors is composed of 20 lawyers selected by the active membership and three members of the public appointed by the Board itself as nonvoting members.
Established in 1973, the D.C. Bar is the mandatory bar association of the District of Columbia. It administers the admissions, licensing, and discipline functions for lawyers licensed to practice in the District of Columbia, while also performing other administrative, educational and public service programs.
Mr. Salzberg has been an active member of the D.C. Bar for over a decade, and has served the last five years on the D.C. Bar’s Attorney/Client Arbitration Board (ACAB). The ACAB has jurisdiction over disagreements regarding fees paid, charged or claimed for legal services between attorneys and their clients.
Mr. Salzberg is a member of Squire Patton Boggs’ Restructuring & Insolvency Practice, where he focuses on bankruptcy litigation, creditors’ rights, debtor reorganizations, and complex commercial litigation. He has extensive experience representing debtors, creditors’ committees, financial institutions, secured and unsecured creditors, franchisors and distributors in bankruptcy matters throughout the United States.
Commenting on his election, Mr. Salzberg said, “It is an honor to be elected to the Board of Governors and to have a chance to play a part in the D.C. Bar’s important mission of enhancing access to justice, improving the legal system, and empowering lawyers to achieve excellence.”
