Edward A. Mullen, a regulatory and enforcement partner with Reed Smith in Richmond, was named to the class of 2021 ‘Leaders in the Law’ by VLW. According to the publisher, these honorees are “recognized for changing the law, serving the community, changing practice or improving Virginia’s justice system, among other accomplishments.”

Mullen has worked in and around Virginia state and local government for more than 20 years and has significant legal, policy and political experience.

Tysons, Va.-based real estate associate Ehsan Sanaie was named to VLW’s Up & Coming Lawyers list. This recognition honors lawyers making their mark within their first 10 years of practice, whom the publication expects will be leading the profession in Virginia in the years to come.

Sanaie represents local, regional, and national owners, real estate investment trusts, developers, property managers, financial institutions and others in commercial real estate transactions.
