As 2013 comes to a close, Super Lawyers celebrates another year of recognizing excellence in practice with the release of our Top Lists.
Attorney David J. Beck of Beck Redden in Houston, a member of the Super Lawyers National Advisory Board, is representing the University of Texas at Austin in the dispute with actor Ryan O'Neal over an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett. The Charlie's Angels star left her collection of art to the university before her death of cancer in 2009, O'Neal, an old flame, has had possession of it since soon after her death and claims that the portrait is his.

Super Lawyers is perhaps most well-known for our lists, rating attorneys in each state using our patented selection process. But an important part of Super Lawyers is our editorial team, whose hard work regularly produces top-notch features on our selected attorneys, which are included in each issue of Super Lawyers Magazine. Earlier this year, we told you about two awards for which we were considered, and we're thrilled to announce that we've recently received two more.
It's that time of year again: The 2013 Super Lawyers Business Edition is here! This annual publication includes exceptional attorneys from over 8,500 firms who have mastered their skills in five different business-related practice areas: Business & Transactions; Construction, Real Estate and Environmental; Employment; Intellectual Property; and Business Litigation.
In April, we released a special Pro Bono Super Lawyers Digital Magazine, featuring the seven recipients of the 2012 Super Lawyers Pro Bono Awards. We're back at it again for 2013, seeking out a new batch of lawyers, law firms, law students, law schools and other institutions in the legal profession that exemplify excellence in pro bono practice: Nominations for the 2013 Awards are due by October 30, 2013.
It's not uncommon for a firm to have more than one attorney selected to a Super Lawyers list. Is this the case with your firm? If so, you might be wondering how to promote not only your selected attorneys, but the firm as a whole. The good news is that Super Lawyers has a solution: the Online Firm Profile.
There's a new way for selected attorneys to showcase their accomplishment online: a complimentary Super Lawyers attorney badge. Interested in more ways to promote selection to a Super Lawyers or Rising Stars list? Attorneys selected to a Super Lawyers or Rising Stars list from any year have the exclusive opportunity to display a personalized badge on their website, blog or other online property at no cost.
Super Lawyers has published its list of "Litigation Firms You Should Know About," featured as a special section in the July 2013 issue of Delta Airlines' Delta Sky magazine. The list can also be found at SuperLawyers.com/LitigationFirms.
