Eight Davis & Kuelthau attorneys honored by The Best Lawyers in America®

September 1, 2010

MILWAUKEE – Eight lawyers from Davis & Kuelthau, s.c. were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2011 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession (Copyright 2010 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).

“We’re pleased to have eight of our attorneys recognized for legal excellence. I applaud them for their efforts and am proud to be associated with such a highly regarded team,” stated Ann M. Rieger, president of Davis & Kuelthau, s.c.

Lawyers that have received the esteemed tribute include those:

Practicing in the Green Bay office:
Robert W. Burns, Labor and Employment Law; and Geoffrey A. Lacy, Labor and Employment Law
Practicing in the Milwaukee office: Christopher J. Jaekels, Municipal Law; Kevin J. Lyons, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Construction Law and Environmental Law; William J. Mulligan, Commercial Litigation and Environmental Law; and Catherine M. Priebe, Trusts and Estates
Practicing in the Oshkosh office: James R. Macy, Labor and Employment Law; and Edward J. Williams, Labor and Employment Law

While seven of these attorneys have received this distinction in the past, it is the first year that Christopher J. Jaekels has been listed in Best Lawyers.

Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Because of the rigorous and transparent methodology used by Best Lawyers, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Steven Naifeh, president of Best Lawyers, says, “We continue to believe – as we have believed for 28 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of recognition in the legal profession.”

Davis & Kuelthau, s.c. is a full-service law firm with more than 65 attorneys practicing from six offices across Wisconsin. The firm offers an array of legal services to Wisconsin-based corporate, public, private and individual clients that range from small, midsized institutions to large municipalities and corporations.
