Editor’s note:

This is the Law Journal’s annual yearbook devoted to recognizing both newly promoted partners and newly hired lateral partners at law firms in New Jersey.

This year, we received 185 partner profiles, up from 178 profiles last year and 106 the year before.

Once again, we’re thrilled to have seen so much interest from so many firms. We hope this fantastic response is indicative not only of firms’ increased engagement with our publication, but of an improving economy in which more firms are hiring lateral partners and promoting talent from within.

In these pages you’ll find an eclectic mix of younger partners and more senior partners who span a wide range of practice areas at firms both large and small across the state. Together, they paint a picture of the level of experience and the types of practices that are in demand at law firms in New Jersey.

We wish them all continued success.

New Jersey Bureau Chief
