Harness IP Attorneys Named to 2020 Missouri Super Lawyers List

Harness IP, one of the country’s largest intellectual property law firms, is pleased to announce that three attorneys in its Metro St. Louis office were named to this list of 2020 Missouri Super Lawyers. One additional attorney was named to the Rising Stars list. These honors are granted to only the most respected attorneys in the state, with no more than 5% of attorneys in each state making the Super Lawyers list and no more than 2.5% earning Rising Star status. 

The selected attorneys include:

Missouri Super Lawyers

Missouri Rising Stars

Attorneys from the St. Louis office are joined by several Harness IP attorneys from Metro Detroit and Dallas who were announced to their states’ Super Lawyers lists earlier this fall. From Michigan, these attorneys include: Beth Coakley and Glenn Forbis. Attorney Tim Martin also earned the Rising Star designation. From Dallas, Principal attorney Gerald Welch earned the title Super Lawyer for his 16th consecutive year.

Nominations are based on a rigorous, three-step system of peer reviews and independent research to evaluate key indicators of professional success. The Rising Stars designation follows the same process as Super Lawyers, with the added qualifier that only lawyers who are under 40 and who have practiced law for 10 years or less can earn this prestigious honor. Selections for both lists are made each year and announced on a state-by-state basis.
