Carlos Perez-Albuerne, partner and member of the Intellectual Property Litigation Group, was selected as a finalist for “20 on the Move,” a joint venture between the Boston Business Journal and El Planeta honoring Hispanic executives making a difference in Boston. Mr. Perez-Albuerne was chosen from among more than 100 nominees. Finalists will be published in a special editorial supplement and honored at a reception at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel on October 17.
Mr. Perez-Albuerne was singled out for this prestigious honor because of his achievements as a leading intellectual property litigator and for serving as a prominent role model for other Hispanic lawyers. Mr. Perez-Albuerne represents many well-known clients such as Akamai Technologies and Hewlett-Packard.
In the community, Mr. Perez-Albuerne currently serves as the deputy regional president for the New England Region of the Hispanic National Bar Association and is a member of the board of governors of the Hispanic National Bar Association. As part of the HNBA, he helped found a new mentoring program for local Hispanic law students. Mr. Perez-Albuerne has personally mentored two law students since the program began last year and expects that it will bring more young Hispanic lawyers into the Boston legal community.
“Carlos is a talented intellectual property litigator and an outstanding leader in the Hispanic community. It is truly an honor for him to be selected as one of the first ‘20 on the Move’ Hispanic executives who are making a difference and we are very proud of him,” said William Gelnaw and John Nadas, co-managing partners of Choate Hall & Stewart.
Mr. Perez-Albuerne received his JD, cum laude, from Georgetown University in 1998 and his BS from Clarkson University in 1991. He is a member of Choate’s Hiring, Diversity and Technology Committees. Mr. Perez-Albuerne was named a Massachusetts Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2006.
