Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. attorneys named 2014 "Lawyers of the Year" by Best Lawyers®August 21, 2013
MILWAUKEE (Aug. 21, 2013) -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 two of the firm's attorneys "Lawyer of the Year" for 2014.
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:
- James A. Friedman: Best Lawyers' 2014 Madison Appellate Practice "Lawyer of the Year"
- John L. Kirtley: Best Lawyers' 2014 Milwaukee Bet-the-Company Litigation "Lawyer of the Year"
Lawyers being honored as "Lawyer of the Year" are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments they conduct 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.
