McGuireWoods Partner Bob Redmond Receives International Association of Defense Counsel’s Irick Award

August 25, 2014

McGuireWoods LLP partner Bob Redmond is the new recipient of the Joan Fullam Irick Award as the best committee chairman within the worldwide defense bar organization.

The IADC is an invitation-only group of civil defense lawyers in private practice and in corporations.

Several McGuireWoods partners are members of IADC. Bob chairs the group’s Toxic Tort and Hazardous Substances Committee.

He was honored with the Irick Award for his role in developing a series of seminars and webinars over the last year on toxic tort issues. The programs included a standing-room-only presentation in Vienna, Austria, by Sam Tarry, one of Redmond’s fellow partners in McGuireWoods’ Richmond office, on a recent RICO case in which the firm secured a verdict in favor of a major client.
