Four lawyers in McGuireWoods’ Charlotte, Raleigh and Wilmington offices were
been named North Carolina’s Rising Stars 2009 in a recent study by Law &
Politics magazine. The findings are published in the February 2009 edition
North Carolina Super Lawyers magazine and the Charlotte 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. To
ensure a diverse and well-balanced list, the research staff considers factors
such as firm size, practice area and geographic location.
