The Idaho Business Review has selected 21 top legal professionals as 2020 Leaders in Law honorees, recognizing them for leadership, professional achievements, mentorship and community service.
The winners range from relative newcomers to the industry who are rapidly making their mark to legal aces with decades of experience. They represent five awards categories: partner, associate, in-house counsel, sole practitioner and up-and-coming. One honoree — Bart M. Davis, United States Attorney for the District of Idaho — earned the lifetime achievement award.
This year, in light of the continuing COVID-19 outbreak, the Idaho Business Review will hold the awards event virtually on Nov. 19 at 4 p.m. in conjunction with the Excellence in Finance awards. While the combined program is unique for 2020, the law and finance sectors work together and in many cases exchange client referrals, so bringing the two sectors together presents new opportunities for networking.
Tickets are available now.
The 2020 Leaders in Law will be profiled in a special publication, which will be distributed with the Idaho Business Review on Nov. 20.
