Eleven Shutts & Bowen attorneys throughout the State of Florida have been recognized in Florida Trend’s 2010 Florida Legal Elite.
Last fall, lawyers in Florida were asked by Florida Trend to name attorneys they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. Ballots were processed, checked and tabulated by a third party resource. Each lawyer was given a score based on the number of votes he or she received and whether the votes came from within their firm or outside their firm. The list of top vote-getters was further examined using membership status and practice histories provided by the Florida Bar. A panel of previous Legal Elite winners, representing a variety of practice areas in cities across the state, reviewed the selection process and the list of finalists.
