Nominations Now Open for 2014 London Super Lawyers & Rising Stars!
The Best of 2013: Super Lawyers Top Lists
2013 was the inaugural year for London Super Lawyers Magazine, and we're excited to announce that we're heading back in 2014! Nominations are now open for the 2014 London Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists.
The 2013 London Super Lawyers Magazine
The selection process for the London lists is the same as that for the lists here in the US: a multiphase process involving peer nominations, independent research and peer evaluations. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding lawyers that can be used as a resource for both lawyers and consumers seeking legal counsel.
"We're thrilled to be back in London," said Julie Gleason, Director of Research, Super Lawyers. "Our mission to provide visibility to outstanding lawyers extends to those in the UK for the second year in a row, and we're excited to see what 2014 brings."
Lawyers selected to the 2014 London Super Lawyers or Rising Stars lists will receive unprecedented visibility. The lists will be seen in the London Super Lawyers Magazine, distributed via the Telegraph Magazine, in December of 2014. Additionally, this year's selected lawyers will join the 2013 selectees in our online directory at SuperLawyers.co.uk.

As 2013 comes to a close, Super Lawyers celebrates another year of recognizing excellence in practice with the release of our Top Lists.
What are Top Lists? Published in each state, the attorneys included on a Top List are have not only been selected to their state's Super Lawyers list-they have also scored the highest point totals during our patented selection process, which is comprised of peer nominations, independent research and peer evaluations.

Attorneys on a Top List are truly the best a state has to offer, and this year is no exception. Among this year's Top List attorneys are:
- Carter G. Phillips (Top 10, Washington, D.C.), whose 76 arguments before the United States Supreme Court are the most of any attorney currently in private practice.
- Ted Wells (Top 10, New York Metro), dubbed the "go-to guy" for defense in high-profile white-collar criminal cases and complex civil litigation.
- Charla G. Aldous (Top 50 Women, Texas and Top 10, Texas), the personal injury attorney whose verdicts and settlements from 2000-2005 garnered more than $675 million.
"Super Lawyers is proud to provide visibility to outstanding attorneys," said Julie Gleason, Director of Research for Super Lawyers. "The Top Lists take that step to the next level by highlighting those attorneys who demonstrate a truly exceptional level of accomplishment."
The size and specifics of each Top List (Top 10, Top 50 Women, etc.) vary depending on the list's respective state or region, and the number of attorneys selected to the state's Super Lawyers list for the year.
If you've been selected to your state's Top List, there are some easy ways to promote this accomplishment: Download our Super Lawyers Promotional Kit for templates to use on your website, blog or social media channels.
