Super Lawyers Honors McGuireWoods Partners in L.A. Office

January 27, 2009

Nine McGuireWoods’ partners have been named “Southern California Super Lawyers” in a recent study by Law & Politics magazine. The findings are published in the February, 2009 edition of the publication’s Los Angeles 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 partners were named as Southern California Super Lawyers:


Thomas L. Becket, Real Estate
James C. Earle, Construction Litigation
Susan L. Germaise, Real Estate
Sidney K. Kanazawa, Business Litigation
Gary D. Samson, Capital Market Group
Keith A. Sipprelle, Employment Litigation/Defense
Mark K. Suzumoto, Business/Corporate
David B. Van Etten, Employment & Labor
Leslie M. Werlin, Business Litigation
