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.
Distributed to over 50,000 in-house counsel and executives, as well as online at Business.SuperLawyers.com, the magazine serves as the go-to guide for general counsel in charge of making legal hiring decisions. The attorneys included are selected by Super Lawyers using a patented selection process, with no more than five percent of attorneys from each state making the list.
The 2013 Super Lawyers Business Edition contains:
- Top law firms in solo, small, medium and large firm sizes from each state within specific business-related practice groups
- Lists of law firms that include attorneys who were selected to Super Lawyers in 2012 or 2013 in business practice areas
- Spotlights on firms that receive outstanding results for their corporate clients
Within each edition, you’ll also find compelling editorial features on general counsel who exemplify excellence in practice. This year we are honored to profile the general counsels of some of the world’s most recognized brands, including Charles Schwab, Fannie Mae, Office Depot, Best Buy and CareerBuilder.
We talked with Charles Schwab’s Carrie Dwyer, who rose through the ranks of a traditionally male-dominated field to become the “first filter” of Charles Schwab himself. Fannie Mae’s Brad Lerman has an acute sense of fairness and big-picture approach that has made him a strong client-relationship lawyer. Office Depot’s Elisa D. Garcia C. is working on what may be the biggest legal matter of her career: merging Office Depot and OfficeMax. Best Buy’s Keith Nelsen discusses what it takes to lead a legal department during times of change and difficulty. And when Alex Green stepped into the GC role at CareerBuilder in 2004–following tenures in the legal departments of McDonald’s Corporation and Household International–he wasn’t even 40 years old.
The print publication will be available on November 18. For more information, or to view the 2013 Super Lawyers Business Edition digital edition, visit Business.SuperLawyers.com.
