Linda Klein, senior managing shareholder in the Atlanta office of Baker Donelson, has became president of the American Bar Association. She will serve a one-year term ending in August 2017.
Klein will focus on improving access to justice and providing legal assistance for our nation’s veterans. She will also emphasize two civic initiatives: one that mobilizes ABA resources to promote voting in the upcoming elections, and another that will support the rights of all children to a quality education.
Klein’s practice includes most types of business dispute resolution.
In June 1997, Klein became the first woman to serve as president of the State Bar of Georgia. She also was one of the first women to lead a prominent Georgia law firm, serving as managing partner of Gambrell & Stolz beginning in 2001 and led the firm’s 2007 merger with Baker Donelson.
