November 13, 2006 - Phil Wittmann has been named to Lawdragon's 500 Leading Lawyers in America. His profile will be included in the Lawdragon's Fall 2006 issue and its online website at www.lawdragon.com.
First published in 2005, The Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America is the leading guide to the nationâ€™s best lawyers and judges. It is comprised of private lawyers from a wide range of practices, as well as in-house counsel, law professors, judges and neutrals, government attorneys, and public interest lawyers. Those named to the list represent less than one-half of one percent of the legal profession, placing them among the most elite group of legal professionals.
More than 15,000 attorneys were nominated for the list by their peers. The Lawdragon editorial staff selected 3,000 finalists. The Lawdragon 500 was selected from that group, based on a proprietary system that takes into account dozens of qualifications that are scored to determine the best lawyers nationwide. Among the factors utilized in the listâ€™s selection are extensive research by a staff of award-winning journalists who interview thousands of lawyers nationwide and a survey of lawyers and general counsel who nominate and vote for their peers online. The 500 Leading Lawyers in America also reflects the practices that are the â€œhottestâ€ during a particular year, as well as those individuals who have had the greatest recent impact on the legal world.
