The Daily Record announced today that Nelson Mullins Baltimore partner Colleen Pleasant Kline will be honored with a 2019 Leadership in Law award in May. Kline was nominated by a client for the award, which recognizes lawyers and judges whose dedication to their occupation and communities is outstanding.
"This year's Leadership in Law honorees have had a tremendous impact on their profession, the community, and the State of Maryland. They have demonstrated professional excellence. They maintain leadership roles in the communities where they live and work, and they demonstrate a strong commitment to mentoring,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. "We at The Daily Record are so pleased to honor their many achievements.”
Kline joined the Firm with the opening of the Baltimore office in early 2018. Practicing corporate law with a variety of clients and matters, she has been called a "Legal Quarterback" of outside general counsel services. Kline was honored in 2017 by SmartCEO Baltimore as a BRAVA Award winner for being an exemplary female leader and by MyCity4HER with a Spirited Woman in Balance Award, which recognizes those who pay it forward. She volunteers within Baltimore's local community, serving as a director and officer for Meals on Wheels for Central Maryland and the Giving Spirits Foundation. In 2013, she was recognized by The Daily Record as one of Maryland's Top 100 Women.
Other 2019 honorees recognized by the Daily Record include four Lifetime Achievement award winners, other Leadership in Law honorees, and winners of the Generation JD award. Kline and other winners will be recognized at an awards dinner held at the BWI Hilton on May 16.
