The ability to make the complex simple and clearly understood is a valuable trait for a litigator. That ability is one of the reasons why Kay Nord Hunt has been selected as Best Lawyers® 2018 Minneapolis “Lawyer of the Year” for her appellate practice and why Barry O’Neil has been added to the 2018 list of Best Lawyers in Litigation (real estate). Kay and Barry are both great lawyers and great storytellers; attorneys who understand how juries and judges look at cases, who know both your story and the law, and who focus on making your story as persuasive as possible. Lommen Abdo congratulates Kay on being recognized as the Appellate Attorney of the Year in Minneapolis and Barry on joining the list of the firm’s Best Lawyers.
Perennially on the list of Best Lawyers are Lommen Abdo attorneys Phil Cole (complex litigation), Bob Abdo (corporate) and Roger Stageberg (corporate). Each were again recognized in the Best Lawyers 2018 edition in their practice areas. Watch for more about all of the firm’s lawyers on the 2018 Best Lawyers list in the next newsletter.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. 83,000 industry leading attorneys are eligible to vote (from around the world), and we have received almost 10 million evaluations on the legal abilities of other lawyers based on their specific practice areas around the world. For the 2018 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, 7.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 58,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
