The inscription on the award reads:
“With experience in over 45 countries, George Bruno is among the most versatile and effective international lawyers in the NH Bar. His contributions range from complex international business transactions in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, to anti-narcotics work in Latin America, election observations in the war-torn Balkans, and skillful diplomacy in Central America. Most notably, he is a gifted mentor to NH Bar members who embark on international engagements worldwide, thereby bringing great credit and honor to the bar as he continues to serve the international community with distinction.”
Ironically, the award was created in 2006 by the Section during Bruno’s tenure as the founding chair of the Section.
