Best Lawyers® 2011 has named three WilmerHale partners as “Lawyers of the Year” for their respective areas of practice:
Mark G. Borden – Boston Corporate Governance and Compliance Lawyer of the Year
William F. Lee – Boston Intellectual Property Lawyer of the Year
Steven D. Singer – New York Biotechnology Lawyer of the Year
Only a single lawyer in each legal practice specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.” All three of these partners received particularly high ratings in Best Lawyers’ annual survey. According to Best Lawyers, each Lawyer of the Year has "earned a high level of respect among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity."
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011) is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
