Nineteen Thompson Coburn partners have distinguished themselves as leaders in their practice areas, as ranked by the 2013 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).
These St. Louis Lawyers of the Year were selected “based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments we conduct with thousands of leading lawyers each year,” according to Best Lawyers. “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.”
Just one lawyer in each practice area and designated metro area is honored as a Lawyer of the Year. Thompson Coburn’s 2013 list of Lawyers of the Year is a dramatic increase from last year, when six practitioners received the honor.
