Larry Kiern, a partner in Winston & Strawn's Washington, D.C. office who concentrates his practice on maritime and admiralty law, has been named a "2012 Distinguished Legal Writing Award" recipient by the Burton Awards for Legal Achievement. This honor is dedicated to rewarding great achievements in law, with a special emphasis on writing and reform. Only 35 authors are selected from entries submitted by the nation's 1,000 largest law firms.

Mr. Kiern's winning article, "Liability, Compensation, and Financial Responsibility Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990: A Review of the Second Decade," is an analysis of key aspects of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA90) and was published in the Tulane Maritime Law Journal (36 TUL. MAR. L.J.1 (2011)). This is his second analysis of OPA90; Mr. Kiern previously published a review of OPA90's first decade entitled, "Liability, Compensation, and Financial Responsibility Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990: A Review of the First Decade," for Tulane Maritime Law Journal in the Spring of 2000.

An awards ceremony will be held on June 11, 2012 at the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.
