Saul Ewing LLP, a full service law firm with more than 270 lawyers in 11 East Coast offices, today announced that Indira Sharma, special counsel in the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice, has been selected to receive the 2017 Outstanding 50 Asian Americans in Business Award.

She also represents clients in a broad range of other litigation disputes involving class actions, commercial leases, estates, environmental issues and non-compete agreements. Resident in the firm’s Baltimore office, Sharma is chair of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee and a driving force behind the firm’s diversity initiatives.

Sharma has also been recognized for her professional accomplishments through her selection by The Daily Record this year as one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women and in 2016 as a Very Important Professional (VIP) Successful by 40. She has also been included on the Rising Stars list in Maryland Super Lawyers Magazine annually since 2013.
