Wendel Rosen Boasts 19 Northern California Super Lawyers And Rising Stars For 2012

OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 14, 2012 – Eighteen Wendel, Rosen, Black & Dean LLP attorneys have been named to the 2012 edition of Northern California Super Lawyers and one has been named a Northern California Rising Star.

Northern California Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters rating service and publication, selects outstanding attorneys from more than 70 practice areas through a rigorous, multifaceted nomination process that comprises a statewide survey of lawyers, detailed peer review and extensive research of each candidate. Approximately five percent of the Northern California Bar received the distinction.

Approximately one-third of Wendel Rosen partners were named Super Lawyers or Rising Stars. The firm saw three more attorneys added over last year’s 16 in part because of strategic recent senior-level lateral hiring.
