Four Nossaman Attorneys Honored as "Best" of 2011
Nossaman is pleased to announce that Best Lawyers, a highly regarded peer-review legal publication, is honoring four Nossaman attorneys in their annual referral guide, The Best Lawyers in America. Rob Thornton has been recognized for environmental law; Marty Mattes for regulatory, communications, and energy law; Kurt Melchior for insurance law; and Linda Morgan in railroad and transportation law. The Best Lawyers database is searchable on Bloomberg Terminals, published in Corporate Counsel magazine, circulated to members of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), and published in newspapers and regional business journals.
Inclusion in Best Lawyers is based on peer review. Attorney interviews are conducted over the phone or via email with interviewers posing the question, "If you could not handle a case yourself, to whom would you refer it?" Participants give nominees letter grades A-C which are then converted into numerical equivalents and averaged. Editors make final decisions based both on comments that are made about a nominee during the polling process and on the nominees' numerical grade average.
