Atlanta (May 2018) – The Daily Report, Atlanta’s legal publication, will honor two Morris, Manning & Martin attorneys for professional excellence next month. The publication recently announced that Charles “Chuck” Beaudrot and Clyde Mize will receive Georgia Legal Awards.
Beaudrot will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award, which honors attorneys who leave a lasting imprint on the legal community of Georgia. He holds a place in history as the first Chief Judge of the Georgia Tax Tribunal, the state’s new tax court. The court resolved more than 1,600 appeals under his leadership. He is also well-known for building one of the most sophisticated tax practices in the country at MMM. The firm’s Real Estate Investment Trust Practice alone handled some of the largest REIT transactions in the nation. He has been honored for several years running in prestigious legal rankings including Chambers USA, the Legal 500, Best Lawyers in America and others. He retired from his full-time position at MMM last year and continues with the firm as Senior Counsel.
Mize will be named a Best Mentor in the midsize firms category, which recognizes lawyers who help less-experienced colleagues become better lawyers. Mize – who believes that the more you get, the more you should give back – founded or supports mentoring programs for several organizations. In addition to two MMM programs, these organizations include Gate City Bar Association, of which he is president; The State Bar of Georgia Diversity Program, which he chairs; 100 Black Men of Atlanta; and the Greater Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. Two of the mentoring programs, including one at MMM, educate high school students about careers in law. Mize also chairs the firm’s Diversity Committee.
The awards ceremony will be held June 28 at the Georgian Terrace Hotel in downtown Atlanta. The Daily Report will also run a special section honoring the award winners.
