Friday, November 9, 2012
Four Husch Blackwell Partners from the firm’s Chattanooga office were named 2012 Mid-South Super Lawyers, and one additional Partner was named a Rising Star. 

Alan L. Cates has been named in the area of Estate Planning & Probate law, Ronald I. Feldman in Real Estate law, Gregory M. Leitner in Business Litigation law and Jeffrey S. Norwood in Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rightslaw. Scott M. Shaw was named a Rising Star in the area Business Litigation law.

Only up to 5 percent of attorneys per jurisdiction are named Super Lawyers. Selecting the attorneys involves an in-depth, measurable process. Peer nominations by seasoned attorneys followed by detailed evaluations are matched against third-party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on a state-by-state basis annually.

No more than two-and-a-half percent of attorneys in a state are named Rising Stars. The lawyers who make this list must be under 40 years old or have less than 10 years of legal experience. They go through the same selection process as Super Lawyers, excluding the peer evaluations.
