Announcement

Godfrey & Kahn attorneys named 2020 "Lawyers of the Year" by Best Lawyers

August 15, 2019

MILWAUKEE (August 15, 2019) − Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is proud to announce that Best Lawyers®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named seven of the firm's attorneys "Lawyer of the Year" for 2020. In total, 64 attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2020.

Best Lawyers® began designating "Lawyers of the Year" in the U.S. in high-profile legal practice areas in 2009. Since then, they have extended this honor to many other countries where the Best Lawyers® peer-review process is conducted as well.

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant. Godfrey & Kahn attorneys who received this accolade are:

Madison, WI Lawyers of the Year

  • David J. Gilles – Energy Law
  • James A. Friedman – Appellate Practice
  • Jon E. Anderson – Education Law

Milwaukee, WI Lawyers of the Year

  • Christopher B. Noyes – Securities/ Capital Markets Law
  • Jennifer P. Wolff – Commercial Finance Law
  • Mark C. Witt – Leveraged Buyouts and Private Equity Law
  • Thomas R. Homberg – Financial Services Regulation Law

Lawyers being honored as "Lawyer of the Year" are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments Best Lawyers® conducts with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
