Three Luce Forward Lawyers Selected As ‘Rising Stars’

SAN FRANCISCO (September 29, 2009) – Northern California Super Lawyers has selected three attorneys from Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP, a prominent California law firm with a national reputation, for inclusion in its 2009 “Rising Stars” list. These include Diana Donabedian, Nhung Le and Jennifer Renk. Donabedian and Le are associates in the Commercial, Finance and Insolvency group and Renk is an associate practicing Land Use and Environmental Law; all are located in the firm’s San Francisco office.

To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for ten years or less. In addition to a general survey, an attorney-led research team reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. Candidates for Rising Stars do not go through peer evaluation by practice area, as they do for simultaneously-published Super Lawyers. However, up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, while no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.

Donabedian practices in the area of bankruptcy concentrating on representation of Chapter 7 and 11 trustees, receivers, assignees for the benefit of creditors, creditors’ committees, and creditors in a broad range of bankruptcy, insolvency and workout issues.

Le advises trustees and assignees in all aspects of bankruptcy and assignments for the benefit of creditors. This includes representing trustees and assignees in fraudulent transfer and preference litigation, contractual disputes, lien disputes and claim objections.

Renk’s practice focuses on land use and environmental law, with particular expertise in the California Environmental Quality Act.

Founded in 1873, Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP is a full-service California law firm with offices in San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Carmel Valley/Del Mar, Orange County and Rancho Santa Fe. For more information, visit
