LAWDRAGON 500: THE LEGENDS

The Lawdragon Legends includes the truly select lawyers who have made our elite annual guide 10 times since our founding in 2005. The Legends are a dazzling array of law firm leaders, plaintiff icons, Supreme Court justices, corporate counsel and public interest attorneys. We first published the Legends in 2015, as part of our 10th Year Anniversary celebration.
