We are thrilled to present our 2020 D.C. Rising Stars. Our 40 honorees represent a variety of practice areas—from appellate to First Amendment to international trade. They’ve proven their mettle where it counts, representing high-profile clients and securing high-dollar victories. One honoree oversaw the $130 billion merger between E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co. and Dow Chemical Co. Another won a major partisan gerrymandering challenge to North Carolina’s state legislative districts. And a third represented city councilors in Charlottesville, Virginia, who were sued for voting to remove Confederate statues. This year, they share their biggest successes in practice, their keys to success and what they’ve learned along the way. —Sarah Tincher, Managing Editor
