WilmerHale attorneys took home four of the eight awards presented at the Legal Times award ceremony held on Wednesday evening in recognition of Washington, DC's "Leading Lawyers." The eight recipients of this award were chosen out of 106 previously named Leading Lawyers by the public as being at the top of their respective practice areas.
During 2003 and 2004, through its own reporting and analysis, Legal Times named 106 Washington-based "Leading Lawyers" in eight practice areas. These lawyers represent metro DC's top advocates in the areas of appellate litigation, government contracts, intellectual property, labor and employment, litigation, real estate, securities and corporate governance, and trusts and estates. In an election open to the public held this fall, one Leading Lawyer was singled out within each of these eight practice areas and subsequently honored at the above-mentioned ceremony on December 1.
The following WilmerHale attorneys received the top honor award in their respective practices: William McLucas, Securities & Corporate Governance; Thomas Olson, Intellectual Property; Howard Shapiro, Litigation; and Seth Waxman, Appellate Litigation.
