MARCH 22, 2017 – Allison Condra and Lance Koonce were recognized as among the country's most widely followed authors in their respective practice areas in the second annual JD Supra "Readers' Choice" Awards.

The awards recognize the top ten authors—measured by "consistently high readership and engagement"—in each of 25 industries or cross-industry topics. Condra was recognized for her ongoing contributions to Davis Wright Tremaine's Food + Bev Law Blog. Koonce was recognized for his in-depth coverage of issues surrounding the development of blockchain technology at his Creative Block(chain) blog.

This is Condra's second consecutive year being named a Top Author. An attorney in our Portland office, she concentrates her practice on legal, regulatory, business, and policy issues facing the food, beverage, and restaurant industries.

Koonce is a partner in our New York office and a leader of the firm's Blockchain and Distributed Technologies Initiative. His post, "Could a Blockchain-Based Registry Ever Replace the Copyright Office?" was one of the five best-read JD Supra articles in the entire banking/financial services category in 2016. He and the other nine "Top Authors" in banking/financial services were selected from more than 15,400 JD Supra contributors.

JD Supra is a leading publisher, distributor, and curator of legal information to the business world through its website and daily newsletters.
