Thomas Sager (’76) will receive a lifetime achievement award from The American Lawyer magazine at the 11th annual American Lawyer Awards dinner Oct. 29, 2014, at Gotham Hall in New York City. 

The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to a nominee who has not only had tremendous career success, but also made an impact through civic work or other types of service.

Sager most recently served as the general counsel of chemical company DuPont Co., where he worked for 37 years after graduating from Wake Forest Law. During his time there, he acted as a pioneer for minority rights and diversity in the legal workforce. The Minority Corporate Counsel Association gives The Sager Award to a company who has demonstrated excellence in improving diversity in honor of Sager and his work.

Sager retired from DuPont in June and became a partner at Ballard Spahr. He is also on the board of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and serves as a trustee for Widener University.

Sager serves as a member of the Wake Forest Law General Counsel Board.
