Hunton Andrews Kurth Attorney Vicki Tucker Leads American Bar Association’s Business Law Section
RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 20, 2018--Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is proud to announce Vicki O. Tucker has begun a one-year term as chair of the American Bar Association’s Business Law Section.
“Vicki’s contributions to the bar and our firm have been significant, and she continues Hunton Andrews Kurth’s long tradition of service,” firm managing partner Wally Martinez said. “Our congratulations to Vicki on her well-deserved recognition.”
Tucker is the third Hunton Andrews Kurth lawyer to head the ABA’s Business Law Section, joining George Gibson (1959-60) and George Freeman (1990-91), and she is the first woman from the firm to serve in this role.
“Vicki has been committed to the ABA, and the Business Law Section in particular, for many years, and her appointment as chair is the culmination of that dedication,” said Mike Nedzbala, co-head of the firm’s structured finance and securitization practice. “We are extremely proud of Vicki’s accomplishments and excited to see her serve in this new role.”
The Business Law Section is one of the largest ABA groups, with nearly 50,000 members and approximately 60 committees covering a broad range of business practice areas and interests, including commercial and consumer finance, corporate and securities laws, commercial litigation, professional responsibility and diversity and inclusion, among others. An active Business Law Section member for many years, Tucker most recently completed a term as its chair-elect and previously served as vice chair, secretary and a member of its Council, in addition to other section leadership roles.
Tucker serves as counsel in Hunton Andrews Kurth’s Richmond office. Her practice focuses on secondary market transactions involving residential mortgage loans and mortgage servicing rights, representing banks, servicers and others on hundreds of transactions.
