Fifty-three lawyers from the Seattle and Bellevue, Wash., offices of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2011 edition of "Super Lawyers." The Super Lawyers list, published by Thomson Reuters Legal, is identified through an extensive research and survey process, starting with peer nominations. Only 5 percent of the lawyers in Washington are named to this list.

In addition to being named to the Super Lawyers list, special recognition was attributed to two of the firm's Seattle partners–Warren J. Rheaume (intellectual property litigation) and Stephen M. Rummage (class action/mass torts)–who were named to "The Top 100" list. For a complete list of Davis Wright's Washington lawyers named to the 2011 Super Lawyers list, see below.
