Thirty Nine Drummond Woodsum Attorneys Are Ranked in the 2017 New England Super Lawyers List

Drummond Woodsum, one of northern New England’s premiere law firms, is pleased to announce that 39 of its attorneys have been selected to the 2017 Super Lawyers – New England list.  Nineteen attorneys were named to the New England Super Lawyers list and another 20 ranked among New England’s Rising Stars – attorneys who are under 40, or have been in practice for 10 years or less.

Both lists recognize lawyers for their outstanding professional achievement.  Through a combination of peer nominations and independent research, Super Lawyers recognizes outstanding attorneys in more than 70 practice areas. Fewer than five percent of the lawyers in New England are selected to the Super Lawyers list, and fewer than 2.5 percent to the Rising Stars list. The lists are published in the annual Super Lawyers Magazine—New England edition.

Below is the listing of attorneys from Drummond Woodsum who have been honored by New England Super Lawyers and Rising Stars and their respective practice areas for which they were recognized. Congratulations to those who have been included for the first time:  Isabel Ekman, Adrianne Fouts, Greg Im, David Kallin, and Hannah King,
