Stephen Zack To Represent U.S. At UN General Assembly
Stephen Zack has an impressive resume: Florida Bar president, American Bar Association president, chair of the Miami Beach Charter Review Committee and chair of the Magna Carta 2015 Committee to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.
Now the Boies Schiller & Flexner partner is adding another honor to the long list. President Barack Obama nominated him to represent the United States at the 68th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations, which began Sept. 16. Zack was named along with former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and Elizabeth Bagley, a former U.S. ambassador to Portugal.
Zack's new role will not affect his position at the law firm, where he serves as administrative partner in the Miami office, according to a staff memo from firm chair David Boies.
"We're glad Steve will be representing our country during these interesting times at the United Nations, and we look forward to having more time to visit with him in New York," Boies said in the memo.
Zack was the first Hispanic American to be president of the ABA. The commercial litigator represented former Florida governor and U.S. senator Bob Graham as general counsel and represented former Vice President Al Gore in the Bush v. Gore case.
