Lawdragon selects these lawyers through their "time-honed process combining journalistic research of those lawyers at the forefront of our distressed days with robust submissions from peers, competitors and firms." They "vet the candidates with their colleagues and check, as well, that they are respected, if not beloved, by clients and other counsel."
"Among their signature traits is the ability to be calm, deliberate and creative while it feels worlds crash around them. They find the through line to the future. A good lesson in uncertain times."
