LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- John Lim, Managing Partner of LimNexus LLP, will be one of the recipients of the prestigious "2019 Spirit of Excellence Award" by the American Bar Association (ABA) which will be presented at the ABA's Mid-Year Annual Meeting in Las Vegas on January 26, 2019. The award celebrates prominent and exceptional lawyers who have also made efforts and accomplishments promoting a more racially and ethnically diverse legal profession.
Helen B. Kim, Chair of the ABA Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity said, "The motto of the Spirit of Excellence Awards, "To the Stars Through Difficulty," symbolizes the struggle of racially and ethnically diverse lawyers as they travel the road to personal and professional success. Special indeed is the person who can navigate his way while paving the way and assisting those who follow. From the historic role John played in helping Koreatown recover from the devastating effects of civil unrest in 1992, to his leadership role in numerous public interest law groups and non-profit organizations, to the generous scholarships John's firm provides each year to diverse law students, John truly exemplifies the spirit of this award."

"We take pride in the fact that our lawyers come from various ethnic backgrounds as they can offer our clients diversity of thought and experience, cultural sensitivity and language capabilities. Our global perspective and proven track record with overseas clients is what distinguishes us from other law firms here in the United States and in Asia, and we encourage and invite international companies to connect with us for their cross-border legal needs."
