2015 Super Lawyers Business Edition: A Referring Attorney's Handbook

Did you know 46% of Super Lawyers or Rising Stars selected attorneys have referred a client to a fellow selected attorney four or more times in the past year?* Super Lawyers Business Edition serves as a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding business attorneys that can be used as a resource for referring attorneys searching for legal counsel.

USBE15_SM_Cover.jpgIn this directory, which we hope you'll hold on to and consult throughout the year, you'll find attorneys who have demonstrated excellence in their business-related areas of practice. The attorneys included were selected to a 2015 Super Lawyers list in practice areas that are divided into five distinct groups: Litigation; Employment; Construction, Real Estate and Environmental; Business and Transactions; and Intellectual Property.

In addition to a listing of attorneys, we also feature a top law firm section for each practice group, highlighting solo, small, medium and large firms. These firms were chosen based on the number of attorneys within the firm who were selected to a 2015 Super Lawyers list in addition to a combination of metrics indicating the quality of those attorneys.

Dispersed throughout the pages of Business Edition you'll also find write-ups on debunking legal technology myths and secrets to a department-wide efficiency tune up. We invite you to view a sample of this content below.

MYTH: Cloud software isn't secure.

BUSTED: It goes without saying that a legal department handles sensitive information that can't be compromised. With the prevalence of cloud-based software products, the question becomes whether the cloud is a place where confidential legal information can be stored. Any reputable cloud-based legal software that handles confidential matters will have industry-standard security certifications, which often consist of bringing in auditors to hack their system-if the hackers succeed, certification isn't granted. These companies should be able to provide you with these certifications and satisfy any security questions that your IT department may have.
