Who are Akron’s top Legal Eagles? The Akron Legal News and the Akron Bar Association are inviting the local legal community to weigh in on which lawyer/firm/legal department handled the most significant cases in the last 18 months.
Firms and in-house legal departments are invited to submit their top three cases or transactions that were resolved or took place between June 2015 and December 31, 2016. The cases and/or transactions should be selected based on precedent, major verdict, dollar amount, or impact on a community. If possible, the cases and transactions should pertain to Northeast Ohio. They must involve attorneys based in the Akron area.
Each case submission should contain a brief description, including when it took place, attorneys involved at the firm/company, any co-counsel, and an explanation as to why the cases/transactions are significant.
Upon receipt, Akron Legal News reporter Sherry Karabin will contact each firm/legal department to get more details about the cases or transactions, putting together stories that will appear on the Akron Bar Association website and in the Examiner magazine as well as in the Akron Legal News. Members of the legal community will then be asked to vote for the winners via the Akron Bar Association website or by mailing in their selections.
Nomination forms should be submitted to Executive Director C. Allen Nichols at the Akron Bar Association via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or they may be dropped off at the Akron Bar office at 57 S. Broadway.
The submission deadline is February 15, 2017.
