Portland, Ore. – Nine lawyers from Markowitz, Herbold, Glade & Mehlhaf were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2012 (Copyright 2011 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).
David Markowitz, Jeff Batchelor, Jeff Edelson, Peter Glade, Lisa Kaner, Matt Levin, William Mehlhaf, Renée Rothauge and Kerry Shepherd were recognized for their excellence in the area of commercial litigation.
For the twentieth year, Markowitz is included in the elite category of “bet-the-company litigation.” Batchelor is listed in three additional areas: arbitration, appellate law and mediation. Edelson is listed in the additional area of labor and employment law. Rothauge is recognized in the area of intellectual property litigation. Levin is listed in the area of antitrust law and Kaner and Markowitz were recognized for the additional category of real estate litigation.
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
