He is one of 39 nominees nationally being honored and recognized for their professional contributions to the fields of bankruptcy and insolvency.
"Selection is perhaps the highest honor that can be conferred on a professional," said Kevin R. Pinegar, president of Durham Jones & Pinegar. "(It is) limited to those who have made exceptional professional and scholarly contributions in the field."
The American College of Bankruptcy is a professional and educational association. Its fellows include commercial and consumer bankruptcy attorneys, insolvency accountants, turnaround and workout specialists, law professors, judges and government officials.
Cannon has spent 30 years representing parties in reorganization cases, in transactions with insolvency issues, as well as in teaching and lecturing, Pinegar said.
In addition to his legal practice, Cannon serves as an adjunct professor of law at the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah and as a member of several federal court committees. He is a regular panelist and lecturer at regional and local bar conferences, and formerly was an adjunct faculty member at the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University.
He also has published widely in the areas of insolvency, legal history and Western American history.
