Sharon Brown Assumes Leadership Roles With American Bar Foundation and NYS Bar Association

Sharon Brown, partner, has been appointed to two high-profile leadership positions within professional associations for attorneys. Brown has accepted a nomination to become a fellow of the American Bar Foundation, and she has joined the executive board of the Women in Law Section of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA).

The American Bar Foundation conducts research that explores the intersection of law and society to expand knowledge and advance justice. Its fellows comprise a global honorary society of attorneys, judges, law faculty, and legal scholars whose careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession. 

NYSBA’s Women in Law Section is a group of attorneys, both women and men, that serves as a critical voice for professional women. The section’s mission is to advance women in the legal profession and all women under the law. Brown serves as co-chair of the section’s Committee for Awards and Honors. She is also a member of NYSBA’s Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and chairs the committee’s Events Subcommittee, and she is a member of NYSBA’s Task Force on Racism, Social Equity, and the Law and co-chaired the task force’s Housing Committee.

At Barclay Damon, Brown serves as a co-chair of the Public Finance Practice Area and as the firm’s diversity partner and chair of the Diversity Partner Committee.

Barclay Damon attorneys team across offices and practices to provide customized, targeted solutions grounded in industry knowledge and a deep understanding of our clients' businesses.
