Four Lanier Ford attorneys are lawyers to watch for 2022
For the 2022 edition of Best Lawyers in America, four Lanier Ford attorneys are on the Ones-to-Watch list:
- Lauren B. Houseknecht in the areas of alternative dispute resolution and personal injury litigation (on behalf of defendants).
- W. Ty Stafford in the areas of intellectual property law and real estate law.
- Christopher M. Pape in the area of labor and employment law (on behalf of management).
- Amanda R. Coolidge in the area of workers’ compensation law (on behalf of employers).
To be included in Best Lawyers in America is a signal accomplishment, but Best Lawyers is now identifying younger attorneys who are exhibiting outstanding professional excellence early in their careers. Best Lawyers calls them “Ones to Watch,” and they have typically been in practice from 5 to 9 years.
The methodology by which Best Lawyers puts young attorneys on its watch list is the same as that used for more experienced attorneys being named a Best Lawyer: peer-review. That’s because Best Lawyers believes the best resource to provide feedback on the caliber of work performed by an attorney is his or her peers.
