Although service to clients will always remain more important than peer reviews, we are proud to announce that partners Walt Moeling, Kathryn Knudson and Jim McAlpin were each selected for inclusion as bank regulatory attorneys in Georgia Super Lawyers 2012. Walt was further honored as one of the Top 100 attorneys in Georgia, while Kathryn was selected as one of the Top 50 female attorneys in Georgia.  In all, attorneys in Bryan Cave’s financial institutions practice constituted half of the bank regulatory attorneys identified as Super Lawyers in Georgia. In addition, partner Rob Klingler was named to the Georgia “Rising Stars” list for 2012.

Super Lawyers lists the top 5 percent of attorneys in a state or region who have attained a high level of recognition and professional achievement. Honorees are identified through peer surveys, independent research and a blue-ribbon panel review.   “Rising Stars” are chosen by their peers as being among the top up-and-coming lawyers (40 years old or younger, or in practice 10 years or less). Only 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state were selected.

In total, 28 Bryan Cave lawyers in the Atlanta office were named Georgia Super Lawyers and an additional 11 were named “Rising Stars.”  A complete list of Bryan Cave’s Super Lawyers and Rising Stars is available here.
