Fulbright partner James Tussing has been elected as a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation.
The Foundation is an honorary organization of lawyers, judges and law professors whose professional, public and private careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the welfare of their communities and to the highest principles of the legal profession.
With membership limited to a third of one percent of America's lawyers, an invitation is considered a great honor. Members are nominated by Fellows in their jurisdiction and elected by the Board of the American Bar Foundation.
Based out of Fulbright's New York office, Tussing acts as the head of Fulbright's Equipment Finance Group and co-head of its Global Infrastructure Group. His practice focuses on equipment financing, including debt and lease financings of equipment, as well as joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, workouts, reorganizations and equipment finance litigation. With over 30 years of experience in aircraft financing, Tussing frequently gives lectures on equipment financing issues and has been appointed an arbitrator and expert witness on related matters.

Blackshear, Jr., Patricia Braddock, Andrew Demetriou, Otway Denny, Jr., Gibson Gayle Jr., Brian Greig, W. Wendell Hall, Robert Harrell, Harry Hathaway, Frank Jones, Layne Kruse, Michael J.
