July 11, 2016
Twenty-eight Tonkon Torp attorneys in 10 practice areas are named on the national 2016 Super Lawyers or Rising Stars lists. 

Tonkon Torp partner and bankruptcy authority Albert Kennedy was recognized on the Top 10 list of lawyers rated most highly by their peers statewide. 
Seven of Tonkon Torp's 2016 Rising Stars – lawyers under age 40 – have previously appeared on the list: corporate lawyer Andrea ("Drea") Schmidt, business litigators Ryan Bledsoe, Christopher Pallanch, and Anna Sortun, and labor and employment lawyers Colin Geiger, Blerina Kotori, and Haley Morrison.

New to the Rising Stars list this year are business litigators Eric Beach, Sarah Einowski, and Alex Tinker, and tax lawyer Michael Mangan.
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.
