Zuber Lawler & Del Duca LLP Attorneys Chosen to Lead Multiple ABA Committees
Zuber Lawler & Del Duca is proud to announce the appointment of four of its partners to leadership positions at the American Bar Association. These new appointments will reinforce the firm’s thought-leader status with respect to litigation-related issues most important to in house counsel, and increase its exposure and influence abroad.
Patrick Del Duca, a Partner in the Corporate / Finance Department of Zuber Lawler & Del Duca, has been appointed Co-Chair of the Mexico Committee of the ABA Section of International Law. His term will run from August 04, 2009, to August 5, 2010. Patrick currently occupies the Vice Chair position of the Committee. While Mr. Del Duca’s appointment reflects his extensive experience and expertise in matters of law pertaining to Latin America and Latin American companies, his thought leadership in the international legal community extends far beyond the borders of Latin America. Mr. Del Duca is a member of the Pacific Council on International Policy, and an adjunct professor at UCLA School of Law, Loyola Law School, and U.C. Davis School of Law, where he teaches International Finance, European Union Law, Latin American Infrastructure Development and International Arbitration.

With several years of experience practicing at one of the largest firms in each of Japan and South Korea, and as the most recent past President of the Inter-Pacific Bar Association, Mr. Libby is recognized as a thought leader on Asian law, and a leader of the international legal community. Mr. Libby’s new leadership position re-affirms Zuber Lawler & Del Duca’s commitment to practicing and influencing the practice of law in Asia, and to stimulating the exchange of legal information and ideas on a global scale.
Jeff Zuber, a Partner in the Litigation Department of Zuber Lawler & Del Duca, has been appointed Co-Chair of the Diversity Subcommittee of the ABA Litigation Section Trial Practice Committee.
