KHF member Jacklyn Fetbroyt has been selected for inclusion in the 2017 Super Lawyers’ Rising Star list for Pennsylvania in the practice areas of Business and Corporate law. This is the sixth time Jackie has received this accolade.
Published by Thomson Reuters, Super Lawyers is a ranking of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Rising Stars is a list of the top up-and-coming attorneys in a state – either 40 years old or younger, or who has been practicing for 10 years or less.
Published annually, the selection process uses a patented process of peer nominations, independent research and peer evaluations in determining the list. No more than 2.5% of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team for the Super Lawyers’ Rising Star list. A description of the selection methodology can be found at http://www.superlawyers.com/about/selection_process.html.
KHF founding member Jacklyn Fetbroyt was invited to participate in The Legal Intelligencer’s Women in the Profession Roundtable, featured in the publication’s November 2016 “Top Women in Law” special supplement.
The roundtable, moderated by Morgan Lewis chair Jami McKeon, addressed issues that included recruitment and retention of female lawyers, gender equality issues, work-life balance and challenges facing women at law firms today.
The editorial staff of The Legal has always been aware that the hiring and retention of female attorneys is an ongoing issue in the legal community. In an effort to discuss some of the specific problems facing female attorneys and present potential solutions to those problems, we invited 11 practitioners to talk about how to bolster the role of women in the law. This year the panelists tackled issues such as work-life balance, equal pay and the lack of positive change and opportunities for women in the legal profession.
For Jackie, this is her fifth time (2010, 2013-2016) as a Rising Star in the area of Business/Corporate law – Pennsylvania.
The Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars list recognizes up and coming attorneys in each state 40 years old or younger, or those who have been practicing for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in each state are named to the Rising Stars list. The lists are selected and published by Thomson Reuters. The selection process includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by an attorney-led research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice, and a good-standing and disciplinary check.
