The Latinx Law Students Association (LaLSA) at New York University (NYU) School of Law selected Latham partner Tony Del Pino as a 2022 LaLSA Alumni Recognition Awards recipient. He was chosen based on his “distinguished career and contributions to the Latinx community.”
Del Pino received his JD from New York University School of Law. Over a career spanning more than two decades, he has earned numerous accolades from top industry publications and peers. He was appointed as a member of the US State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy and currently serves on the Council of the Americas’ Board of Directors. As Global Chair of Latham’s Latin America Practice, he has contributed immensely to the practice’s substantial growth in its Latin American business and emergence as an industry powerhouse.
“I’m honored to have been recognized by my alma mater, and it was great to see firsthand how LaLSA has grown at NYU,” said Del Pino. “The event theme was ‘Resiliencia’ (Resilience), which has been an underlying theme in my life, coming from a family of Cuban refugees to carve out a career at one of the leading law firms in the world. I’m passionate about paying it forward and paving a path for students, associates, and others in the legal field and beyond.”
In his role as a mentor, Del Pino has been the partner advisor to Latham’s Hispanic/Latin American Lawyers Affinity Group since its inception. He works to enhance the firm’s diversity and foster an inclusive environment for members of the Hispanic/Latino community, as well as cultivate networking opportunities and mentor associates on their career paths.
Del Pino was awarded along with fellow honoree Sinsi Hernández-Cancio, vice president for Health Justice at the National Partnership for Women and Families. Past LaLSA Alumni Recognition Awards recipients have included the Honorable Jenny Rivera, associate judge for the New York State Court of Appeals; the Honorable Marisa Judith Demeo, magistrate judge for the Superior Court of the District of Columbia; and Andre Segura, legal director of the ACLU of Texas; among other leaders in the field of law. LaLSA seeks to empower and support Latinx students at NYU School of Law through providing opportunities to contribute to the wider Latinx community and increasing representation in the legal field.
