Merchant & Gould, an intellectual property law firm, announced that Sonny Zhan, has been selected for the prestigious Federal Bar Association's (FBA) Judge Jacob Dim Scholarship Award for Excellence in the study of federal law and practice at Hamline University School of Law. Judge Donovan Frank presented the award to Zhan on April 18 at the University of Minnesota Law School.
For the past 20 years, the Minnesota Chapter of the FBA honors a student from each of the four law schools for excellence in the study of federal law and practice. Each year, the FBA requests faculty from each of the four schools to select a deserving student for the honor and the winner receives an engraved wooden plaque along with a $2,000 check.
"We congratulate Sonny on this fabulous achievement," said Randy King, CEO and managing director of Merchant & Gould. "Our firm prides itself on bringing in talented attorneys who rise above the din and stand out both amongst their peers and within the industry. Sonny is a perfect example of this commitment and we feel fortunate to have him as part of our team."
