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.

A Good Deal for Everyone

 We are thrilled with the acquisition of Super Lawyers by Thomson Reuters. The transaction is the ultimate validation of Super Lawyers as the leading lawyer rating system in the country. Both lawyers and consumers will benefit: With Thomson's extraordinary resources and capabilities, the attorneys named to Super Lawyers will be able to greatly expand their reach to new client and referral sources. And consumers will now have even better access to Super Lawyers knowing the integrity of the rating process will be preserved in keeping with the Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.
