Ethisphere magazine has selected Weil partners Jonathan Polkes and Christopher Garcia to its 2013 “Attorneys Who Matter” list. Mr. Polkes, co-chair of Weil’s Securities Litigation practice group, was named along with three other lawyers nationwide in the Securities category and Mr. Garcia, a Securities Litigation and White Collar Defense & Investigations partner, was recognized as one of seven lawyers nationwide in the Rising Stars category.
According to the publication, the list includes “the best and the brightest in the legal field” who “are best prepared to handle any issue arising around their particular specialty or subject matter expertise.” The honorees were selected based on nine criteria: recognized expertise, peer/client endorsements, high-profile litigation, the number of cases won, high-profile clients, public service, legal community engagement, academic involvement, and other awards and recognitions.
The honorees will be featured in the Q2 issue of Ethisphere magazine. Ethisphere magazine is committed to illuminating the link between ethics and profits with a mission of helping corporate executives “guide their enterprises toward gaining market share and creating sustainable competitive advantage through better business practices and corporate citizenship.”
