Bowles Rice Attorneys Named to Annual Super Lawyers List

June 18, 2013

Twenty-one Bowles Rice attorneys were selected for inclusion in the 2013 Super Lawyers Magazine for Virginia and West Virginia. The recognized lawyers practice in nine different areas of law, including energy and natural resources, banking, business litigation, construction litigation, employment and labor, employment litigation, mergers and acquisitions, real estate and tax.

Only five percent of the lawyers in any state are selected as Super Lawyers, through polling, peer assessment and a research process that evaluates each candidate based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Four of the 21 Bowles Rice lawyers honored as Super Lawyers  were designated as "Rising Stars." Rising Stars are evaluated by the same process, although candidates must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.
