Our second installment of the Vanguard Series centers around the law, specifically local attorneys who stood out for their roles in important (sometimes landmark) cases or were instrumental in giving back to their profession by providing opportunities for other lawyers to get to the next level in their careers.
We polled dozens of law firms and asked them to provide us with names of attorneys who made their marks for one reason or another over the past 12 months. As I wrote in May about our Vanguard Series leaders in health care, these profiles are not about the people at the top of the org chart, but rather those within their organizations who were selected for their exemplary work.
What’s particularly special about this list is the wide breadth of practices that are featured.
From real estate and health care to intellectual property and insurance, law reporter Gabrielle Saulsbery chronicles some of the most interesting cases of the past year.
Among them: The arguments in front of the U.S. Supreme Court that led to the decision enabling New Jersey to legalize sports betting, a potential long-term bonanza for the state.
I hope you enjoy the latest Vanguard Series section: Leaders in Law.
