Law360 (September 8, 2019, 9:04 PM EDT) — We’re pleased to announce Law360’s Rising Stars for 2019, our list of 175 attorneys under 40 whose legal accomplishments transcend their age.
After carefully reviewing more than 1,300 submissions for the Rising Star distinction, our team of editors arrived at the list of Rising Stars hailing from more than 80 law firms and spanning 39 practice areas. Winners were selected based on their career accomplishments in their respective disciplines.
Jones Day took the top spot this year with eight Rising Stars, displacing two-year winners Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP and Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Gibson Dunn continued to dominate, however, nabbing the second-place spot alongside Debevoise & Plimpton LLP and Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP with seven Rising Stars each. And Kirkland, Arnold & Porter and Sidley Austin LLP followed closely behind, rounding out the top group with six apiece.
Congratulations to this year’s Rising Stars.
Joseph Abboud, Katz Marshall & Banks
Krissy Katzenstein, Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP
Kate Mueting, Sanford Heisler Sharp LLP
