United States: WilmerHale Counsel Arian June Elected To Serve On DC Bar Board Of Governors
Last Updated: June 15 2015

WilmerHale Counsel Arian June has been elected to the DC Bar Board of Governors and will serve a three-year term. Of the 75,002 ballots mailed, 7,212 were cast for a 9.6 percent overall turnout. June received more than 3500 votes on the 2015 General Election Tally Sheet, placing her in the top three most voter-recognized candidates across all offices in the election.

The DC Bar Board of Governors is composed of 20 lawyers selected by the active membership and three members of the public, appointed by the Board itself, as nonvoting members. The committee oversees the operation of the bar and works to uphold the three pillars that have remained the foundation of the DC Bar's mission since its creation by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals in 1972. Its motto, "Enhance access to justice, improve the legal system, and empower lawyers to achieve."

Prior to running for the Board of Governors position, June maintained strong ties to the organization as an alumna of the DC Bar's John Payton Leadership Academy, a professional development program named to honor the legacy of the former DC Bar president, WilmerHale partner and mentor to June. In addition, she has also served with the bar's Pro Bono Program.

June's practice experience is extensive, advising clients in government and internal investigations of potential securities law violations, including insider trading, financial reporting violations, broker-dealer supervisory matters and accountant liability cases. She has represented institutional and individual clients in a variety of investigations before government regulators and, as a member of the firm's Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Working Group, June closely monitors the developments surrounding the whistleblower rules and regulations with speaking and publishing regularly in this area.

All newly elected officers, board members, and delegates will take office during the 2015 Celebration of Leadership: The DC Bar Awards Dinner and Annual Meeting. The ceremony is set for 7 p.m. on June 16 at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel, 1127 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington DC.
