Troutman Sanders Attorneys Named New York Super Lawyers


NEW YORK – Troutman Sanders LLP is pleased to announce that five of its lawyers have been selected for inclusion in the 2008 edition of Law & Politics’ New York Super Lawyers – Metro Edition.

For inclusion and distinction as a “Super Lawyer,” attorneys are selected by their peers based on an extensive balloting, research and blue-ribbon review process. This year, Law & Politics sent out approximately 109,000 ballots to active lawyers in the New York metro area and asked them to nominate attorneys whom they have personally observed in litigation, transactional or other legal matters. The voting attorneys were asked not to choose a candidate based on reputation alone, but on certain criteria, such as peer recognition, professional achievement, civic service and pro bono activities.

Based on this rigorous selection process, five attorneys at Troutman Sanders have been ranked by their peers in the top five percent of active, licensed attorneys in the New York metro area.
