The 2023 honorees were selected by a committee made up of honorees from the previous year’s 40 Under 40 class. The new class was recognized and received their awards at the Forty Under 40 Awards dinner on Thursday, August 24, at the Quad Cities Waterfront Convention Center in downtown Bettendorf.

Prior to joining Lane and Waterman, Grace practiced in Chicago serving as toxic tort National Coordinating Counsel for a leading product manufacturer, effectively managing and coordinating litigation defense strategy, including discovery, dispositive motion practice and trial workup for high indemnity jurisdictions.
