When identifying attorneys for the Rising Stars lists, Thomson Reuters employs a rigorous, multiphase process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third-party research. Each candidate is evaluated on the following 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement: verdicts and settlements; transactions; representative clients; experience; honors and awards; special licenses and certifications; position within law firm; bar and or other professional activity; pro bono and community service as a lawyer; scholarly lectures and writings; education and employment background; and other outstanding achievements. Candidates are grouped into four firm-size categories. Those with the highest point totals from each category are selected. This means solo and small firm lawyers are compared with other solo and small firm attorneys, and large firm lawyers compete with other large firm lawyers. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis and no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. View full details on the selection process
