One has sparked a tech revolution in tax law. Another has brought free legal help to hundreds of refugees. And one more kick-started his career by defending gun owners. The winners of this year’s Precedent Setter Awards are a varied bunch. But they all have this: wicked-smart legal minds that have thrust their careers into overdrive. And with an eye to community work, these lawyers are remaking the profession for the better. All in their first 10 years of practice.
Which is why, for their photo shoot, we took them out for brunch at Cluny Bistro & Boulangerie, perhaps the most stunning restaurant in the Distillery District. With its legit Parisian cuisine and elegant design, we could think of no better place to pamper lawyers who deserve a hard-won break.
May we proudly present the lawyers to watch in 2016.
