Colin received two awards, the Harrison Legal Writing Award (First Place) and the Donald R. Lundberg Writing Award, for his articles When, Where, and How of Piercing the Corporate Veil in Indiana and Citing Unpublished Cases in Indiana: Rules & Caselaw, respectively. The Harrison Legal Writing Award, named for the founding president of the state bar and former President of the United States, Benjamin Harrison, is presented to the top article published in Res Gestae (the journal of the ISBA) from December 2015 through May 2017. Colin previously received the Harrison Legal Writing Award (Third Place) in October 2015. The Donald R. Lundberg award commemorates the top article for the YLS Network publication.

In addition to receiving the Harrison Legal Writing Award, Colin has been invited to speak on behalf of the Business Section at the ISBA’s annual meeting on the topic of piercing the corporate veil in Indiana.

Colin, who is a prolific legal writer, also has two forthcoming articles accepted for publication, one of which will be presented at the Seventeenth Annual Symposium on Legal Malpractice & Ethics in San Antonio, Texas in January.
