A jury of one’s peers
IN THIS edition of Business Day Tax & Law Review we feature a special report on Best Lawyers SA 2010.
Inclusion in Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review.
For over 25 years in the US and three years in SA, the top lawyers in the US and SA respectively have helped make the publication the leading legal referral guide by candidly evaluating the work of other top lawyers in the same areas of expertise.
After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers this year has designated “Lawyers of the Year” in highprofile legal practice areas, such as tax and competition law.
Unfortunately, Tax & Law Review has not the space to profile all the lawyers who received accolades. A list of all the lawyers honoured by inclusion can be found on page 12.
This year was an extremely eventful one and we decided to ask some of SA’s Best Lawyers to tell us what stood out for them in their areas of practice and the challenges they foresee in the near future.
More than 88 000 top general counsel see Best Lawyers lists in incisive publications such as Corporate Counsel and The American Lawyer, while more than 16-million readers see the lists in dozens of city and regional publications in the US including The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and New York Magazine as well as in major business and general publications around the world, from Business Day in SA to Expansion in Spain.
The editors of Best Lawyers and Business Day Tax & Law Review would like to congratulate all the professionals who have been selected as Best Lawyers SA for 2010.
