Carlton Fields’ Kristin A. Gore Earns NBA Top 40 Under 40 Nation's Best Advocates Award

West Palm Beach, Fla. – Carlton Fields is pleased to announce that West Palm Beach Shareholder Kristin A. Gore is a recipient of the National Bar Association (NBA)'s Top 40 Under 40 Nation's Best Advocates Award.

The award recognizes the nation's top Black lawyers under 40 who exemplify a broad range of high achievement. Gore was selected for her accomplishments as an intrepid litigator, her dedication to pro bono work, and her commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.​ ​She will be recognized at a virtual ceremony on July 24 during the NBA 96th Annual Convention.

Gore is an experienced litigator who focuses her practice on antitrust litigation and other complex commercial litigation. She is an integral part of the firm’s antitrust cartel recovery practice, and in this capacity, she represents a range of corporate clients in multidistrict litigation in federal courts across the country. Gore also represents international business clients in a range of litigation and dispute resolution matters in the United States. As a Jamaican national with dual citizenship since birth, Gore's cross-cultural knowledge and experience are particularly beneficial for the increasingly global reach and multijurisdictional aspects of doing business today.

As past chair of the Pro Bono and Public Service Subcommittee within the American Bar Association Business Law Section, Gore led several public service events, particularly mentoring events for middle school and high school students interested in legal careers. She is also a past fellow of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity and past chair of the ABA Business Law Section Young Lawyer Committee’s Diversity Subcommittee.
