Taft Chicago Partner Graham C. Grady is one of three recipients of The Chicago Bar Association’s 2017 Earl Burrus Dickerson Award. Grady will be honored at the commemorative luncheon on Feb. 22 at the Standard Club. Along with Grady, Josie M. Gough, Loyola University School of Law, and Robert F. Harris, Cook County Public Guardian, will be honored.
The award was established in honor of the late Earl B. Dickerson who was an outstanding lawyer and among the first African-American members of The Chicago Bar Association. His life and professional career were devoted to the law and helping others gain equality and justice. In this spirit, The Chicago Bar Association established the Dickerson Award to recognize and honor minority lawyers and judges whose careers at the bar emulate the courage and dedication of Dickerson in making the law the key to justice for all in our society.

Grady focuses his practice on the city of Chicago and Cook County, and other stakeholders. He provides legal counsel for compliance, regulatory, public policy, zoning, land use, licensing, construction agreements, government contracts, procurement and legislative approvals.
