Heyl Royster Partners Named As “The Best Lawyers in America”


Five Heyl Royster partners are listed in the 2014 Best Lawyers in America Business Edition – four partners who were previously listed, and one partner who is a new Best Lawyer. Best Lawyers is one of the most robust peer-review directories in the legal profession and it rates attorneys in a wide range of practice areas internationally. This year, partner Lisa LaConte was named a Best Lawyer in the area of Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants. The firm's partners who were again named to Best Lawyers are: Tim Bertschy for Commercial Litigation (since 2010); Steve Heine for Railroad Law (since 2013); Brad Ingram for Employment Law – Management (since 2010); and Chris Larson for Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants (since 2008). 

Inclusion in Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer-review. The process is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. The Best Lawyers Board of Advisors includes legal luminaries from almost every major world economy as well as general counsel from global companies with business on every continent. This distinguished group of professionals are responsive to both the concerns of the legal profession and the needs of clients.
