When Law & Politics completed its polling of active lawyers in Georgia, Alston & Bird LLP had 103 of its lawyers ranked by peers as “Super Lawyers” for 2006. Sid Nurkin, a partner in the firm’s Corporate Transactions and Securities Group, once again was selected as one of the state’s top 10 lawyers. Bankruptcy partner Neal Batson was listed as one of the top 100 lawyers in the state. Lisa Cassilly, partner in the Labor & Employment Group, was among the top 50 female lawyers in Georgia.
The selection is based on the opinion of lawyers who have been practicing for five years or more and who are asked to identify “the best attorneys they have personally observed in action.” In the 2005 rankings, Alston & Bird had 90 lawyers listed.
