Reputation is everything in the business world, and business law is no exception. Employers and potential clients all across the country turn to Super Lawyers, Thomson Reuters’ research-driven rating service, to find the best lawyers in the game. The goal of the service is to give credit where credit is due — bringing attention to the lawyers who deserve it the most.

This week, the service released its 2013 Super Lawyers Business Edition. The publication includes attorneys from over 8,500 firms who are at the top of their fields in various areas of business law.

The edition is organized into five different business practice areas:

  • Business & Transactions
  • Construction, Real Estate and Environmental
  • Employment
  • Intellectual Property
  • Business Litigation

BigLaw isn’t the only group represented in the edition. The publication covers top law firms of all sizes, including solo practitioners and small firms. In addition, attorneys are listed by the state they practice in, allowing hiring managers and potential clients to find the exceptional lawyers in their backyard.

In-house attorneys aren’t left out either. The edition offers in-depth stories on general counsel who have stood out in their field, including Keith Nelsen of Best Buy, Carrie Dwyer of Charles Schwab, and Brad Lerman of Fannie Mae.

At this point, you’re probably wondering how Super Lawyers came up with the list. Good question. The attorneys were selected using the service’s patented selection method. During the process, peer nominations are combined with third party research to identify the attorneys who have excelled in their area of practice.

The edition will be distributed to over 50,000 in-house counsel and executives. The print publication will be available November 18. To learn more about Super Lawyers, or to check out the digital version of the 2013 Super Lawyers Business Edition, visit
