New York Law Journal – 2015 Rising Stars

The New York Law Journal congratulates the 50 young lawyers chosen as 2015 Rising Stars by a panel of 24 esteemed judges.

Our judges reviewed nearly 300 nominations of attorneys age 40 and under who have established a record of accomplishments and demonstrated that they are top contributors to the practice of law and their communities.

Profiles of all our Rising Stars will appear in a New York Law Journal special section on June 16 and they will be honored at an event that evening at Manhattan Penthouse, 80 Fifth Ave., New York, from 6 to 9 p.m.

For those who wish to attend the event to honor the Rising Stars please contact Andre Sutton at asutton@alm.com or 757-721-9020.
