Denning Named to “40 Under Forty” List


Mike Denning, a partner in the firm's Rockford office, has been named to the Law Bulletin Publishing Company's list of the 40 Illinois Attorneys Under Forty who are "up and comers" in Illinois.

The Law Bulletin profile on Mike states, "Those who have witnessed Denning in action consider him a nonstop worker with a high level of skill and integrity."

The Law Bulletin spoke with Robert H. Shultz, Jr., Vice President and Counsel for State Farm Mutual Automobile Company, who worked with Mike in the representation of a component manufacturer that was repeatedly sued in Madison and Cook counties, and who said Mike "managed the client relationship with great skill, largely based upon the superior results he obtained for it in these two challenging jurisdictions."

William Ranard, of Cassidy Schade praised Mike's "wonderful command of the courtroom," and Timothy Leake, of Hinshaw & Culbertson called Mike a "natural leader."

The Law Bulletin's staff conducts an annual survey to determine the leading Illinois attorneys who are under 40 years old and on a fast track professionally. The list of 40 attorneys was selected from more than 1,350 nominations.
