The National Law Journal Names Three WilmerHale Partners Among America’s Most Influential

March 27, 2013

WilmerHale’s former Co-Managing Partner William Lee and Partners Charlene Barshefsky and Seth Waxman were recognized as three of “The 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America” by The National Law Journal. The top 100 selected were identified as those who “shape the legal world through their work in the courtroom, at the negotiating table,” in addition to taking on significant legal battles, and producing the biggest and most recent case victories in recent history.

It is the first time in six years The National Law Journal selected the industry’s top performers based on five qualities: political clout, legal results, media penetration, business credibility and thought leadership. Those selected for the list are attorneys who possess these qualities while initiating and creating real change in the courtroom. The objective of this year’s selection, “was to identify members of law’s power elite.” WilmerHale is proud of the accomplishments of these three influencers.
