AUGUST 16, 2018 – Fourteen Davis Wright Tremaine partners have been named 2019 “Lawyers of The Year” based on surveys conducted by the respected peer-review publication Best Lawyers.

The current, 25th edition of The Best Lawyers in America is compiled from detailed, confidential evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. Based on those surveys, Best Lawyers designates a single “Lawyer of the Year” in each of several high-profile practice areas in major legal markets. One attorney is given the honor in each practice, in each market.
