Brandon Vaughn Named Secretary of the Hennepin County Bar Association
June 13, 2018
Minneapolis, MN—June 13, 2018—Brandon Vaughn, principal and co-chair of Robins Kaplan LLP®’s Diversity Committee, has been appointed secretary of the Hennepin County Bar Association (HCBA).
Vaughn has been a member of the HCBA for 10 years, and for the past four years he has served on the organization’s Board of Directors as a delegate for the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers. He also served on the HCBA’s Mentoring Task Force in 2016-2017 to evaluate how the HCBA could contribute to mentoring in the Hennepin County legal community. He is slated to become the organization’s president for the 2021-2022 bar year.
“I’m honored to have been selected as the HCBA’s new secretary, and I look forward to providing additional value to the organization and its members,” said Vaughn. “The HCBA helps build lasting connections and professional development opportunities between attorneys and law students. More importantly, the organization and its Foundation seek to serve all members of the Hennepin County community. I am excited to continue to serve in a greater capacity.”
Named a principal last year, Vaughn represents plaintiffs in personal injury, medical malpractice, and product liability actions, providing advocacy and justice for those harmed by the medical system. He has handled several notable cases over the course of his career, including a $4.5 million settlement on behalf of an infant who suffered severe and permanent neurological damage when a hospital and nurse/midwife let the mother’s labor continue under unsafe circumstances.
In addition to his work with the HCBA, Vaughn is on the advisory board for Mitchell Hamline School of Law’s Gateway to Legal Education initiative, which seeks to increase access to law school and legal education for minority and first-generation college students. He also currently serves as vice-chair of the Young Lawyers Division of the National Bar Association, the world’s largest and oldest organization of black judges, lawyers, and law students, and was selected for the 2017 class of Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellows. Additionally, Vaughn spent four years on the executive leadership board of Twin Cities Diversity in Practice Young Lawyers Group, where he also served on the organization’s Metrics Working Group and Strategic Planning Committee. He was also selected to the inaugural, 75-member class of the Collaborative Bar Leadership Academy, a national initiative to strengthen the pipeline of diverse bar association leaders.
