Who’s Who Legal is delighted to announce the Lawyer of the Year Awards 2011, celebrating the foremost leaders in their fields. We have compiled the nominations of thousands of clients and private practitioners from over 200 countries to decide on the very best legal experts across 31 practice areas.
The award winners received more votes than any other lawyer in their chapter. Four lawyers enjoy the rare accolade of being seven time award winners, demonstrating outstanding merit in their fields: Theodore Garrett of Covington & Burling LLP in the area of environment law; Gary Horlick of his own firm in trade & customs; Harvey Kaplan of Shook Hardy & Bacon in product liability defence and Philip Zeidman of DLA Piper in franchise. Each lawyer has won the award every year since the start of the research in 2005. We list the lawyers on our website in alphabetical order of practice area.
The 2011 award winners can be viewed here.
Congratulations to the award winners of 2011.
