2013 Super Lawyers Honors 20 Tonkon Torp Attorneys

July 17, 2013
Twenty Tonkon Torp attorneys have been named to the national 2013 Super Lawyers or Rising Stars lists, including two senior partners who are recognized on the Oregon Top 50 list, lawyers rated most highly by their peers statewide.
Bankruptcy authority Albert Kennedy and commercial litigator Daniel Skerritt were again named to the Top 50 list and join 15 other Tonkon Torp lawyers from 10 practice areas on the Super Lawyers list. While most of those attorneys have earned Super Lawyer designation previously, a new addition to the list this year is business litigator Steven M. Wilker. Litigator William F. (Rick) Martson, Jr. was named a Super Lawyer in two practice areas, business litigation and environmental law.
Rising Stars – lawyers under age 40 – include business litigator Caroline Harris Crowne and employment litigator Kristin Bremer Moore, both named for the fourth consecutive year, and business litigator Anna Sortun, named a Rising Star for the first time.
Super Lawyers are selected through a process that identifies outstanding lawyers in dozens of practice areas. Factors considered in the nomination and peer evaluation of potential Super Lawyers include education and employment background, experience, representative clients, pro bono and community service, and honors and awards.
