Ten attorneys from Lane Powell were recently selected by their peers as “Rising Stars” for a 2008 survey published by Washington Law and Politics Magazine.

The Seattle lawyers and their practice areas include: Brian B. DeFoe, Securities and Corporate Finance; Gregory R. Fox, Banking; Steven D. Jensen, Business Litigation; William M.

Schug, Civil Litigation Defense; Karin E. Valaas, Labor and Employment; and David L. Young, Securities Litigation.

Only 2.5 percent of Washington attorneys are given this honor. The 2008 Washington Rising Stars appears in a special section in the December 2007/January 2008 issue of Washington Law & Politics. The selection procedure includes peer nominations (ballots mailed to Washington Super Lawyers) and independent research on candidates. Rising Stars names the top young lawyers in Washington as chosen by Washington Law & Politics Magazine and through independent research by the publishers of Law & Politics Magazine. All Washington Rising Stars are 40 or younger, or have been in practice for 10 years or less.
