Eighty Barclay Damon Attorneys Selected to 2018 NY Super Lawyers and Rising Stars Lists

August 13, 2018—Barclay Damon had 59 attorneys selected to the 2018 Upstate New York Super Lawyers list, 20 selected to Upstate New York Rising Stars, and one selected to New York Metro Super Lawyers.

Each year, no more than 5 percent of lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive the Super Lawyer designation, and no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected to receive the Rising Stars honor.

"We are always excited to see the Super Lawyers results, and this year was no exception, especially with five of our new partners from Menter, Rudin & Trivelpiece, P.C. being honored," John Langan, the firm's managing partner, said. "It's great to see our attorneys' collective track record of excellence across practice areas and industries recognized by the legal community."
