DENVER (March 15, 2013) — Twenty Faegre Baker Daniels LLP attorneys have been named 2013 Colorado Super Lawyers. Additionally, 12 FaegreBD attorneys have been named to the 2013 Colorado Rising Stars list, a designation that recognizes up-and-coming legal talent.
Super Lawyers is an annual service that rates outstanding lawyers in more than 70 practice areas based on peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process includes statewide nominations, peer evaluations and independent research.
Only the top 5 percent of practitioners in Colorado are selected to the annual Super Laywers list. The selection process includes a survey asking lawyers to nominate the best attorneys that they have observed in action. Each nomination carries a point value, and nominations from outside an attorney's firm carry substantially greater value than nominations from within the attorney's firm.
