Super Lawyers Honors McGuireWoods Lawyers as Illinois Rising Stars in Chicago Office

February 8, 2008

Three McGuireWoods’ lawyers have been named “Illinois Rising Stars 2008” in a recent study by Law & Politics magazine. The findings are published in the January 2008 edition of the publication’s Illinois Super Lawyers magazine.

As part of the selection process, Law & Politics magazine conducts a regional survey of lawyers who have been in practice for at least five years, asking them to nominate the best attorneys they've personally observed in action. In addition, the Law & Politics attorney-led research department reviews the nominees’ credentials based on a set of evaluation criteria, including confirmation of their license and any history of disciplinary action (which would remove them from consideration). To ensure a diverse and well-balanced list, the research staff considers factors such as firm size, practice area and geographic location.

The following McGuireWoods lawyers were named as Illinois 2008 Rising Stars:

  • Donald A. Ensing - Partner, Securities & Corporate Finance
  • Benjamin D. Kern - Partner, Intellectual Property
  • Angelo M. Russo - Associate, Antitrust Litigation
