The 2012 Guide to World-Class Employment Lawyers

Lawdragon is proud to present The Guide to World-Class Employment Lawyers, the result of hundreds of law firm submissions and editorial research conducted over the past year. This is the fifth annual guide to leading employment lawyers we have produced in partnership with Human Resource Executive (HRE) magazine.

In addition to the 100 Most Powerful Employment Lawyers below, you can also view the Top 20 in Employee Benefits; the Top 20 in Traditional Labor & Employment Law; the Top 20 in Immigration; as well as 40 Up and Comers in the field.

You can also read HRE's coverage accompanying the lists.
