Partner Alicia Rubio-Spring has been selected as a recipient of the Hispanic National Bar Association’s (HNBA) Top Lawyers Under 40 Award. The annual honor recognizes exceptionally accomplished HNBA members from across the United States “who have demonstrated professional excellence, integrity, leadership, commitment to the Hispanic community, and dedication to improving the legal profession.” The awards will be presented during a reception on March 25 in New Orleans.
Based in Boston, Rubio-Spring is a partner in Goodwin’s Complex Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice and is a member of the firm’s Life Sciences Disputes group. Her practices focuses on advising clients across a variety of complex litigation matters in both federal and state court, including general commercial litigation, post-closing disputes, and consumer protection and antitrust class action litigation.
Committed to giving back to her community, Rubio-Spring has represented clients seeking asylum and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, and helped legal permanent residents become naturalized U.S. citizens. She also serves as a Board Member of Project Citizenship, is the HNBA Region I President, and serves on the Boston Leadership Council for Goodwin’s Committee on Racial and Ethnic Diversity (CRED@Goodwin).

Fraser Pro Bono Award for pro bono leadership, and in 2016 she was selected to participate in the inaugural Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Pathfinder Program.
