Drummond Woodsum announced that 27 of its attorneys have been selected to the 2020 Super Lawyers – New England list. Thirteen attorneys were named to the New England Super Lawyers list and another 14 ranked among New England’s Rising Stars – attorneys who are under 40, or have been in practice for 10 years or less.
Both lists recognize lawyers for their outstanding professional achievement. Through a combination of peer nominations and independent research, Super Lawyers recognizes outstanding attorneys in more than 70 practice areas. Fewer than five percent of the lawyers in New England are selected to the Super Lawyers list, and fewer than 2.5 percent to the Rising Stars list. The lists are published in the annual Super Lawyers Magazine—New England edition.
Super Lawyers selected Hannah King and Malina Dumas to New England’s Rising Stars list this year under a newly expanded category for cannabis law. Super Lawyers also published an interview with Hannah King in 2019 in which she provided legal tips to avoid risk while running a New England cannabis business. The article can be viewed here.
