National LGBT Bar Association Names Viren Mascarenhas to Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40 List

NEW YORK, March 12, 2019 — The National LGBT Bar Association has named King & Spalding partner Viren Mascarenhas to its Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40 list for 2019.

Each year, the National LGBT Bar Association, an affiliate of the American Bar Association, recognizes LGBT professionals under the age of 40 who “have distinguished themselves in their field and have demonstrated a profound commitment to LGBT equality.” The winners will be honored at an awards luncheon at the Lavender Law Conference and Career Fair in early August.

Mascarenhas, who practices from King & Spalding’s New York office, is a member of the International Arbitration Practice Group, and is a specialist in public international law and international arbitration, focusing on both investment treaty arbitration and international commercial arbitration.  He has been recognized as a “Rising Star” by the New York Law Journal for attorneys under 40 practicing in New York and was recently named one of Latinvex’s Latin America’s Top 50 Rising Stars (2018).  Legal500 lists him as a “Next Generation” lawyer in the field of international arbitration.
