Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP is pleased to announce that 19 of the Firm's attorneys have been selected to the 2015 Texas Rising Stars list. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state are chosen to receive this exclusive honor.
Rising Stars recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys who are 40 years of age or younger or have been in practice for 10 years or less. The annual selections are made by the research team at Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
"This recognition represents the outstanding work these attorneys perform on behalf of our clients, and it is gratifying to know that their peers hold their work in such high regard," says Gardere Chair Holland N. O'Neil. "This is a well-deserved honor for this talented group, and we look forward to their future accomplishments."
