International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP announced today that Ian Warner, an associate in the Firm’s Trial Group, has been named to Lawyers of Color’s Second Annual Hot List. He is one of 100 early- to mid-career minority attorneys under 40 from the Western Region to be chosen for this recognition.

Mr. Warner’s practice focuses on complex commercial and business litigation. He has represented various clients in federal and state court proceedings across a wide range of industries including technology, real estate, agriculture and construction.

“We are thrilled that Ian has been selected to Lawyers of Color’s Second Annual Hot List,” noted Ken Cutler, Managing Partner of Dorsey & Whitney. “He is a talented lawyer with a growing commercial and business litigation practice. We are extremely proud of his achievements and of this recognition.”

Honorees will be recognized at a reception in San Francisco, California and will be profiled in the Hot List Issue (July 2014).

The honorees were chosen through a two-part process. The selection committee spent months reviewing nominations and researching bar publications and legal blogs in order to identify promising candidates. Nominations were accepted from mentors, peers, and colleagues. Editorial picks were also made based on research of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments or were active in legal pipeline initiatives.
