Bleichmar Fonti & Auld LLP is pleased to announce that founding partner Dominic J. Auld has been honored as a “Super Lawyer” for having attained the highest degree of peer recognition and professional achievement in the field of Securities Litigation. This is Dominic’s third consecutive year receiving this distinction.
BFA is also pleased to announce that the 2016 edition of Super Lawyers recognized partner Cynthia Hanawalt as a New York “Rising Star” in the field of Securities Litigation, awarded to lawyers under 40 who have already achieved significant success in their field. Ms. Hanawalt has been previously honored with this distinction.
Super Lawyer awards are bestowed annually on no more than 5% of all lawyers that practice in the New York metropolitan area, and the “Rising Star” award is bestowed on no more than 2.5% of the top up-and-coming attorneys who are under 40 or have been practicing in New York for ten years or less. Lawyers who are honored as “Super Lawyers” and “Rising Stars” are evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, and undergo a rigorous, multi-phase selection process involving in-depth research, peer nominations and evaluations with third-party research.
