McGuireWoods’ Atlanta Lawyers Named Super Lawyers “Rising Stars”

February 24, 2011

In a recent study by Law & Politics magazine, six McGuireWoods lawyers in Atlanta were named Georgia Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” for 2010. “Rising Stars” recognizes top up-and-coming attorneys who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing 10 or fewer years. The findings appear in the publication’s Georgia Super Lawyers magazine and the March 2011 issue of Atlanta magazine.

McGuireWoods 2011 Georgia Super Lawyers “Rising Stars”:

  • George J. Barry III, Business Litigation
  • Brennan W. Bolt, Employment & Labor
  • Robert L. Florence, Intellectual Property Litigation
  • Halima Horton, Employment & Labor
  • Andrew G. Phillips, Personal Injury Defense: Products
  • Angela M. Spivey, Personal Injury Defense: Products

As part of the selection process, Law & Politics 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, Law & Politics’ attorney-led research department reviews nominees’ credentials based on a set of evaluation criteria. To ensure a diverse and well-balanced list, researchers consider factors such as firm size, practice area and geographic location.
