Allegra Lawrence-Hardy Named to Atlanta List of Women of Influence

October 2017

Allegra-Lawrence-HardyAllegra Lawrence-Hardy, C’93, was recognized by the Atlanta Business League as one of “Atlanta’s Top 100 Black Women of Influence” at its 22nd Annual Women of Vision Breakfast. Women named to the ABL’s list exemplify excellence within their profession or as entrepreneurs and maintain significant involvement in community and civic activities.

Lawrence-Hardy, founding partner of Lawrence & Bundy LLC., has two decades of legal expertise in business and commercial litigation, labor and employment and crisis management. ABL also recognized Lawrence-Hardy for her involvement with numerous Atlanta charities and civic organizations and for her philanthropy.

“As a Spelman woman, I understand that my gifts are not just for my own benefit but that I am charged to be the change and to inspire change,” she said. “Civic activities allow me to leverage my gifts to benefit the entire community, especially those children who are served by the organizations that I support.”

Lawrence-Hardy often shares her deep litigation knowledge as a prolific author and sought-after speaker. While serving as chair of Sutherland’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, she developed Sutherland Scholars, a summer pre-law school “boot camp” offered at no cost for students from historically Black colleges and universities.

A Yale Law School alumna and magna cum laude graduate of Spelman, she is also a fellow in the Litigation Counsel of America, which is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society and represents less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. Fellows are selected based upon excellence and accomplishments in litigation, trial work and superior ethical reputation.
