Nauen Receives Lillehaug Award from American Constitution Society

The legal community gathered to congratulate LGN partner Charlie Nauen as he received the fifth annual Justice David Lillehaug Award for Distinguished Leadership. The event and award were presented by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Chapter of the American Constitution Society.

The high honor is given to a leader in the local progressive legal community who has demonstrated a commitment to advancing a vision of the Constitution and law that enhances individual rights and liberties, and promotes genuine equality, access to justice, democracy, and the rule of law.

The nomination statement for Charlie noted that he has “been one of the most dedicated and influential progressives over his long, storied career. Whether it is fighting to ensure our right to vote, or pursuing impact litigation when rights are at stake, he has been at the forefront of the progressive movement in our state. We owe him a great debt of gratitude for his lifetime of work.” Charlie has more than forty years of experience litigating complex environmental, business, political, and constitutional law matters in federal and state court.

Congratulations, Charlie!
