Schiff Hardin LLP is pleased to announce that 20 of its Illinois attorneys are honored on a new list of the up-and-coming lawyers who best exhibit “exceptional character” and “outstanding aptitude,” as determined by the top private practice lawyers in Illinois.
In creating the inaugural class of Emerging Lawyers, Law Bulletin Publishing Company (through its Leading Lawyers division) asked its selective group of the state’s top attorneys to recommend the people most likely to lead the profession in the coming years.
The Emerging Lawyers designation is reserved for lawyers who have not surpassed age 40 or who have practiced law for no more than 10 years. Emerging Lawyers account for less than 2 percent of a state’s registered attorneys, and only professionals already identified as Leading Lawyers may select them.
