Happy Anniversary Super Lawyers & Thomson Reuters

This week, Super Lawyers marks our one year anniversary with Thomson Reuters. It's been a great year indeed, and it's been an honor to tell the stories of amazing attorneys from a platform that continues to grow with the help of Thomson Reuters, FindLaw and Hubbard. As a twenty-year member of the Thomson Reuters family via West Publishing, I feel as if Super Lawyers is really at home here. Our motto at West was to provide "better service to the bench and bar," and of course, Thomson Reuters Trust Principles reinforce what Super Lawyers has always stood for -- freedom from bias and dissemination of information. At Super Lawyers, we name the attorneys who exhibit excellence in practice, as evidenced by their nomination by peers and the findings of our independent research team. You can't buy your way onto our list or into our editorial. We disseminate our lists widely so that consumers who need an attorney can use them as input to their important hiring decision. And we surround the lists with editorial that tells the stories of these attorneys who set the bar as jurists, community members and people. It's been a great year for Super Lawyers and I have no doubt 2011 will be even better.
