Celebrating Pioneers: Pat Lundvall
is the First Attorney Certified as a
Civil Trial Advocacy Specialist
by the State Bar of Nevada

McDonald Carano honors the more than 20 years of local and national recognition Pat Lundvall has received for her litigation expertise in the legal profession. In 2001, Pat became Board Certified in Civil Trial Law and Civil Practice Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and is the first attorney Board Certified as a Civil Trial Advocacy Specialist by the State Bar of Nevada. As described by the NBTA, “NBTA-certified lawyers prove themselves to have extensive experience in their specialty and to be the most qualified in their professional field.” Pat is also a Senior Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America, a co-Founder of the Complex Commercial Litigation Institute, and a Nevada Fellow of the American Bar Foundation.

Pat leads McDonald Carano’s Commercial & Complex Litigation Practice, which is ranked in the highest Band 1 category by Chambers USA for “legal knowledge and experience, ability, effectiveness, and client service.” In addition to prestigious professional rankings by Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, and Martindale-Hubbell, Pat has been recognized three times as a leading businesswoman in Nevada, received numerous honors for her leadership in philanthropic organizations, and earned a Distinguished Nevadan award from the Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents. Pat’s many firsts also include serving as a three-term Commissioner of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, including the first woman to chair the Commission, and serving as a member of the first Public Private Partnership Advisory Panel to the Nevada Department of Transportation.

McDonald Carano honors Pat’s extraordinary service to our Firm, our clients and our community.
