Ben Hawfield awarded NCBA Lifetime Achievement Award
Moore & Van Allen (MVA) Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring Member Ben Hawfield was honored as the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Bankruptcy Section of the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) on May 12. The purpose of the Lifetime Achievement Award is to recognize a bankruptcy practitioner who has contributed to the betterment of the Bankruptcy Section, the profession, and who has set an aspiring example for those who follow.
In 1975, Ben joined the law firm of Moore & Van Allen, where he has practiced law for forty-five years, serving ten of those years on the firm’s Management Committee. Colleagues at Moore & Van Allen say “he is beloved at the firm for his generosity and enthusiasm in training and mentoring younger lawyers.” This same sentiment was expressed by others outside of the firm who describe him as a “gentleman lawyer,” “always helpful to young lawyers in the courtroom,” “a respectful adversary,” and “professional in all dealings.”
