Vance is the only attorney from Kentucky elected in the 2017 class of new ALI members. He joins SKO’s Thomas E. Rutledge, tapped to join the Institute in 2004, among its 2,919 members.

Founded in 1923, the ALI is the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize and otherwise improve the law.

“I am deeply impressed by the variety and substance of the achievements of our new members,” said ALI President David F. Levi. “We look forward to working with these wise and accomplished lawyers, judges and academics who are committed to the important work of the ALI.”

Vance joined SKO in 1995 and is a member of the Business Litigation, Intellectual Property and Tort, Trial and Insurance Services practices. He also chairs the firm’s Pro Bono Committee. Vance has received an AV Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating© and is listed in The Best Lawyers in America and as a Kentucky Super Lawyer based upon his experience and ability. He has also been recognized in the International Who’s Who of Commercial Litigators since 2013.

Active in various professional, educational and community organizations, Vance currently is chair-elect of the Section of Litigation of the American Bar Association for 2017-18.
