Allina Hightower Allina Hightower, an associate at Rutan & Tucker, LLP, has been named to Lawyers of Color’s (LOC) Second Annual Hot List. This list recognizes early- to mid-career minority attorneys working as in-house counsel, government attorneys, and law firm associates and partners. Rutan is very pleased to have Allina named to this exceptional group. Honorees will be profiled in Lawyers Of Color’s Hot List 2014 Issue (July 2014). The Western Region honorees will also be honored at a reception on July 23rd. Hightower’s practice involves a variety of business and civil litigation matters, including contract litigation, securities and investments, landlord/tenant disputes, real property litigation, unfair competition, business, corporate and partnership disputes, and business and commercial litigation. She actively supports diversity through her service on Rutan’s Diversity Committee. Additionally, Hightower firmly believes in helping, through pro bono work, those individuals who are unable to afford legal representation. Specifically, she has been involved with the Public Law Center by providing representation to clients in familial disputes and refugees seeking asylum in the United States. The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process. The selection committee spent months reviewing nominations and researching bar association publications and legal blogs in order to identify promising candidates. Nominations from mentors, peers, and colleagues were accepted. The selection committee also made editorial picks of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments, especially those active in legal pipeline initiatives.
