Sixty-seven Heyl Royster attorneys appear in the Law Bulletin Media’s list of Illinois Leading Lawyers for 2020. Fifty-seven are Leading Lawyers and ten attorneys are listed as Emerging Lawyers. In a testament to the quality and ethical standards of the firm’s lawyers, more than 65% of Heyl Royster’s attorneys are Leading Lawyers in at least one area of law – one of the highest percentages in the state. Two Heyl Royster lawyers were added to the ranks of Leading Lawyers this year, Ken Davies and Jim Grabowski.

The attorneys selected as Leading Lawyers constitute less than five percent of all Illinois registered attorneys. Emerging Lawyers – a smaller list of the state’s younger, up-and-coming lawyers – make up less than two percent of all Illinois attorneys.
