DALLAS/HOUSTON – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – A total of 22 partners from the Dallas and Houston offices of Gardere Wynne Sewell have been recognized among 2006’s “The Best Lawyers in America.”
Published by Woodward/White Inc., “The Best Lawyers in America” is widely regarded as the preeminent referral guide to the legal profession in the United States. Representing 57 specialties of law in all 50 states and Washington, DC, the Best Lawyers list is compiled through a survey in which thousands of the top lawyers in the U.S. confidentially evaluate their professional peers. More than 350,000 evaluations are reviewed in making selections. The 2006 edition will be published in November. This edition also marks a change from a biennial to an annual publication.
“The attorneys at Gardere work toward the singular goal of successfully representing our clients in their legal matters,” says Gardere Managing Partner Steve Good. “There is an undeniable feeling of pride whenever our lawyers receive professional recognition from their peers.
