Bracewell & Giuliani LLP Partner Carrin F. Patman has been selected as a 2014 Harvard Advanced Leadership Fellow. Patman was chosen as one of 38 professionals for the 2014 Advanced Leadership Initiative cohort, which includes senior leaders from across the world in the legal, banking, government, technology, and education sectors. Each fellow must have a track record of at least 20-25 years of achievement in their primary career and go through a selection process that includes visits with the selection committee at the Harvard campus.
The Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative launched in 2009 as an opportunity for accomplished leaders to use their skills and background to solve significant social problems, such as poverty, global health, environmental degradation, and basic education. The program’s goal is to focus each fellow’s efforts on the community and public service in the next phase of their career. Advanced Leadership Fellows will have the chance to mentor students and exchange ideas with other fellows in the program in hopes of building a foundation for the next stage in their career.
For 31 years Patman has been a partner in Bracewell’s Houston office, representing business and energy industry clients in litigation including class actions, commercial disputes, securities matters, antitrust and competition issues, environmental violations, and regulatory compliance. She was the first woman elected to the firm’s seven-member management committee.
Patman was a 2012 inductee to the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce Hall of Fame. She received the Karen H. Susman Jurisprudence Award, given by the Anti-Defamation League, in 2001. In 2000, she was selected as a “Woman on the Move” by the Houston Chronicle, recognizing professional achievement combined with community service.
