Law360 Honors Partner Timothy St. George with Rising Star Award


RICHMOND – Timothy “Tim” St. George has received a 2018 Law360 Rising Star award honoring his career accomplishments in consumer protection law. St. George was selected from more than 1,200 nominees and named to the winner’s list of “168 attorneys under 40 whose legal accomplishments transcend their age.” Law360 highlights St. George’s successful defense of cases involving millions of potential class members, billions of dollars in potential exposure, and novel legal issues. Read his full write-up in Law360.

“I am honored by my firm’s nomination and humbled to be recognized alongside such accomplished peers,” St. George said. “I look forward to continuing to serve my clients’ needs.”

St. George’s practice includes the representation of clients in federal and state courts, both at the trial and appellate level. He focuses his practice on the areas of complex litigation and business disputes, financial services litigation, and consumer litigation. He has extensive experience in defending consumer class actions, with an emphasis on defending cases filed under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

“Most attorneys can get lost in the weeds. Not Tim,” said fellow partner Cindy Hanson in St. George’s award nomination. “Tim is always focused on the end game in a case. How is this deposition or that discovery going to advance the client’s position? His focus on the end result ensures that Tim is always advancing the client’s interests in the most efficient manner possible.”

“Tim has an uncanny ability to dissect complex problems, craft practical strategies and legal arguments to advance the client’s interests, while also being a first-rate oral advocate – all with a maturity and judgment of lawyers 10 to 20 years older than him,” added partner David Anthony. “Tim has a strong reputation for integrity, responsiveness and does not shy away from the difficult problem, plaintiff’s counsel or judge. For these reasons, clients understandably love working with him.”

In 2016, Troutman Sanders’ Consumer Financial Services practice was named one of Law360’s Practice Groups of the Year in Consumer Protection for excellence in representing and advising clients with respect to high-stakes litigation and regulatory matters, as well as compliance issues. That same year, partner John Lynch was named a Law360 MVP in Consumer Protection.

Troutman Sanders’ trial attorneys have litigated thousands of individual and class action lawsuits in the consumer protection area. The firm regularly represents national, regional and local clients in litigation and provides compliance advice in the areas of consumer credit and consumer protection.
