McGuireWoods LLP announced that four partners in its Norfolk office have been
named “Virginia Super Lawyers 2009” in a recent study by Law & Politics
magazine. The findings are published in the October, 2009 edition of the
Hampton Roads 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 personally have observed in
action. In addition, the Law & Politics attorney-led research department
reviews the nominees’ credentials based on a set of evaluation criteria.
The following McGuireWoods partners were named as Super Lawyers 2009:
- Douglas M. Foley, Bankruptcy & Creditor / Debtor Rights
Robert W. McFarland, Civil Litigation Defense
- John D. Padgett, Transportation / Maritime
William R. Waddell, Business / Corporate
