NJBIZ is proud to reveal the 2022 Leaders in Law honorees. A celebration showcasing these professionals will take place on May 24 from 8-10 a.m. at The Palace at Somerset Park, 333 Davidson Ave. in Somerset.

Following an open nomination period, honorees were chosen by a panel of independent judges with experience in the justice system. The selections were based on legal professionals — lawyers and general counsels — whose dedication to their occupation and to their communities is outstanding.
