Lynne Barr Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers

The American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers recently honored our Financial Services Group partner, Lynne Barr with its Senator William Proxmire Lifetime Achievement Award at the College’s annual dinner.  The College is an invitation-only group of prominent consumer financial services lawyers, of which Lynne is a fellow and past president.

The Proxmire Award is granted periodically by the College to a person who has made significant contributions in the field of consumer financial services over that person’s career.  William Proxmire was a U.S. Senator who served as Chairman of the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs.  Among his many accomplishments, he was the chief sponsor and was largely responsible for the Consumer Credit Protection Act, major legislation that created a national framework for bringing fairness to consumers entering into credit transactions.
