Atlanta attorney Glenn Hendrix has been appointed to the U.S. State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Law.
The 34-member committee advises the State Department’s top lawyer, Harold Hongju Koh, who reports to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Mr. Hendrix, managing partner of Arnall Golden Gregory LLP, recently completed a term as head of the American Bar Association‘s 20,000 member international committee.
International issues are not new for Mr. Hendrix. With a father in the U.S. Air Force and a mother from Great Britain, he lived all over the world as a child, including nine years in England, he told GlobalAtlanta in a 2009 interview.
As a business litigation specialist, the Emory University law school graduate is often involved in overseas cases and has experience in international arbitration. He obtained an arbitration award for a client which sold an oil refinery to China, for example, and he obtained a decision holding a Ugandan bank liable for one of its subsidiaries in an international sales transaction.
