The Business Law Section of the Colorado Bar Association recognizes that many of its members and other lawyers actively participate in the process of improving the business laws of the State of Colorado by working together to draft business legislation, help other lawyers understand and practice business law, and promote high standards of professionalism for and mutual respect among Colorado lawyers who practice business law. The Section recognizes that these lawyers have devoted many uncompensated hours and much thought participating in this process and believes that this participation, which has consistently been without regard to personal or client interests, has resulted in the improvement of Colorado business law and its practice by Colorado business lawyers.
The Section believes that it is appropriate to recognize some of the many Colorado lawyers who have participated in this process and has created an award known as “The Cathy Stricklin Krendl Business Lawyer Lifetime Achievement Award.” This award is given from time to time to persons selected by the Executive Council of the Section.
The Executive Council considers, among such other attributes as it may determine, the recipient’s intellectual and professional excellence in the practice of or scholarship on Colorado business law; the recipient’s generosity of spirit as reflected in the recipient’s participation in and contribution to the advancement of Colorado business law; the recipient’s efforts to enhance the general quality of business law practice by Colorado lawyers; and the recipient’s devotion to the principles of legal professionalism, all manifested consistently over years of endeavor.
On June 20,2018, the Executive Council of the CBA Business Law Section considered several excellent nominations for the award and voted to recognize Herrick K. Lidstone, Jr. for his many years of furthering the development of practical, comprehensive and well-drafted business related legislation, for writing about and teaching Colorado business law and for his devotion to enduring principles of professionalism in his legal career.
Herrick K. Lidstone, Jr. was honored at the 2018 Business Law Institute on Wednesday, September 12,2018.
