Krissa Lubben and Mark Sableman have been selected as 2014 Client Choice award winners by Lexology, an international legal intelligence service.
Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards recognize law firms and partners around the world that stand apart for their excellent client service. The London-based organization considered more than 2,000 submissions and selected 251 individual winners from across 46 U.S. states.
Only three attorneys were selected from Missouri, including Sableman, who is honored in the category of Media and Entertainment, and Lubben, who is honored in the category of Employment and Labor. Lexology also honored 450 lawyers outside the United States.
Lexology and its partner, the International Law Office, begins its research by asking corporate counsel subscribers to rate individual lawyers and law firms on their quality of legal advice, value for money, commercial awareness, effective communication, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, response time, sharing of expertise and use of technology. Once the research is completed, a list of candidates is compiled and client references are submitted. The winners are selected after research and follow-up interviews.
Lubben’s practice focuses on the representation of employers in employment litigation and client counseling. She has substantial experience in counseling clients and the defense of lawsuits involving sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, race discrimination and religious discrimination under Title VII, age discrimination under the ADEA, disability discrimination under the ADA, the FMLA, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower claims.
Lubben obtained her law degree from the University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign and received an A.B. with honors from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Sableman’s practice focuses on intellectual property, media, and information technology law. He helps media companies in all facets of their work, and helps businesses build their brands, fight infringement and false advertising, protect and use technology, and effectively conduct business in the online world. He is also the author of Internet Law Twists & Turns, a blog that examines all facets of Internet law and explores how those laws affect regular business practices.
Sableman earned his law degree from Georgetown University Law Center, where he was articles editor of the Georgetown Law Journal, and obtained a M.S.J. from Northwestern University and a B.A. from Grinnell College.
