Manatt’s Richard Hartunian, a partner in the firm’s corporate investigations and white collar defense practice, was honored at the Armenian Bar Association’s first Public Servants Dinner.
The Armenian Bar Association was formed in 1989 to provide an arena for Armenian lawyers to come together to address the legal concerns within the Armenian community. In addition to providing a forum for attorneys with different backgrounds to share their expertise and insight, the association provides pro bono assistance and legal education seminars aimed at raising community awareness.
Hartunian is a former United States attorney for the Northern District of New York with decades of experience in the public sector. In addition to Hartunian, the association honored former New York State Supreme Court Justice Deborah Karalunas, former New York County District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and former New Jersey District Judge Claire Cecchi.
