Christopher C. Lam, managing partner of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP’s Charlotte office, has been appointed by North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper to the North Carolina Humanities Council Board of Trustees for a three-year term.
“We congratulate Chris on his appointment by Governor Cooper to help further the mission of the North Carolina Humanities Council in celebrating the state’s great culture and heritage,” said Bradley Chairman of the Board and Managing Partner Jonathan M. Skeeters. “The organization surely will benefit from Chris’s skills, knowledge and insights as a leader at Bradley and elsewhere in the local community.”
Mr. Lam is one of five new trustees directly appointed by the governor.
Founded in 1972, the North Carolina Humanities Council is a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, dedicated to exploring and celebrating North Carolina’s heritage, history, and people. The organization’s board is made up of 23 volunteers from across the state who ensure that the council reaches its mission, evaluate grant proposals, serve on committees, participate in the development and approval of policies and long-range plans, and provide financial oversight.
A member of Bradley’s Litigation Practice Group, Mr. Lam helps clients protect their business interests in disputes related to contracts, business torts, product liability, earn-outs, trade secrets, non-competes, LLCs and partnerships, defamation, motorsports, and private equity investments. His clients include individuals, start-up businesses, middle market companies, and public corporations. He also regularly counsels clients in business issues and contract drafting and negotiation.
In addition to his new role with the North Carolina Humanities Council, Mr. Lam is a leader in several other professional and civic organizations. He currently serves as president of the Mecklenburg County Bar and is past co-chair of the North Carolina Bar Association’s Administration of Justice Committee. He is the past chair of the Business Litigation Committee of the International Association of Defense Counsel, an invitation-only, peer-reviewed organization of approximately 2,500 attorneys from more than 50 countries around the world. In addition, he serves on the Board of Visitors for Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy.
