This is the fifth year that Legal Times has prepared our Leading Lawyer lists, and we’ve learned a few things along the way. For example, most practice areas are not small worlds. Attorneys don’t cross each other’s path nearly as often as reporters seeking comparisons, invidious or otherwise, might wish. So when a lot of communications law experts started pointing fingers in the same direction, we sat up and took notice: Him and him. Him. Oh, and him. Got it. The next step was to make sure that we weren’t receiving old news. None of the 10 lawyers made it onto Legal Times ‘ list based on their illustrious achievements of 20 years ago. Their clients are not asking what has been done for them lately. Indeed, the tally of what all these lawyers have accomplished in recent years is positively exhausting. Fortunately, freelancer Jenna Greene is not easily tired. After the nominations came rolling in, Greene hit the phones to interview private practitioners, in-house counsel, and other longtime observers of the communications bar. The result is this list of 10 top-notch attorneys. To learn more about Legal Times ‘ Leading Lawyers series and to nominate, click here. One more report is planned for this year: Nominations for the best in international trade law are due July 20.
