The 2011 Super Lawyers Business Edition, formerly known as Super Lawyers — Corporate Counsel Edition, recognizes attorneys that have earned the Super Lawyers designation within five business practice groups -- litigation, employment, construction and real estate, business and transactions and intellectual property. Within each grouping are a variety of different practice areas.
The publication is sent in September to more than 40,000 in-house counsel and presidents and CEOs of Fortune 1000 companies.
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a rigorous, multiphase rating process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is then evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.
“Honors like this are a terrific reminder that our work is being recognized,”
About Davis & Wilkerson
Davis & Wilkerson was founded in October 1985, in Austin, Texas, with a goal of developing a legal practice built on strong relationships with its clients, employees and other attorneys. Today, the firm of 33 lawyers still adheres to those goals as well as a professional standard of excellence, noteworthy by the fact that three-fourths of the firm's owners are Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Civil Trial Law, Personal Injury Trial Law, Health Law, Administrative Law or Appellate Law.
The commitment extends to its charitable work as well. It has regularly contributed funds and expertise to help individuals and families receive cost-free legal assistance through the Volunteer Legal Services (VLS) of Central Texas. This contribution was recognized in 2006 when the firm received the prestigious Joseph P. Hart Award, which is given each year to a firm that demonstrates the integrity and commitment to provide legal assistance for those without the ability to obtain that assistance on their own. In addition to D&W’s involvement with VLS, the firm’s attorneys and staff contribute time and money in service to more than two dozen other charitable Austin organizations.
