Stinson Leonard Street LLP attorney Sharon Ng has been selected as the recipient of the Asian Corporate & Entrepreneur Leaders 2015 Corporate Leader Award.

Ng and others were recognized at ACEL's recent 2016 Leadership Gala at the Double Tree Resort by Hilton Hotel Paradise Valley in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Sharon has handled labor and employment disputes, civil rights actions, appellate work, and arbitrations before the American Arbitration Association. She has also successfully prosecuted and defended Native American tribes' and tribal entities' interests in tribal courts across Arizona.
