Introducing six lawyers who stand out…

Each year, Precedent magazine chooses six lawyers in their first 10 years of practice as our Precedent Setter Award winners. Our judges review a stack of impressive nominations to identify people whose hard work, innovation and determination make them worthy of the spotlight.

This year, our winners are an inspiring group of young professionals who are working on key cases, moving the profession forward and devoting themselves to volunteer work. Read on to meet a new generation of leaders.
