Virginia Business Magazine Names 28 McGuireWoods Lawyers to Legal Elite

January 4, 2019

Twenty-eight McGuireWoods lawyers were selected by their professional peers for Virginia Business magazine’s 2018 Legal Elite list published in the December issue. The magazine received more than 3,400 nominations from lawyers throughout the state and selected leading practitioners in 18 categories.  

McGuireWoods lawyers were honored in 13 Legal Elite categories, with four recognized in Labor/Employment and three each in Appellate Law, Business Law, Civil Litigation, Intellectual Property and Taxes/Estates/Trusts/Elder Law.

In a profile of Richmond partner Craig D. Bell as a top vote-getter in the Taxes/Estates/Trusts/Elder Law category, Bell assessed the impact of the 2017 Tax Act on his clients. The law “provided a number of benefits and incentives,” he said, including immediate relief from cutting the top corporate tax rate and repealing the alternative minimum corporate tax rate.
