We at The Legal are soon going to begin the process of naming our 2012 Lawyers on the Fast Track – and we’ll need your help. This will be our 11th annual issue, and each year it represents an opportunity to highlight some of the up-and-coming attorneys across the state. The Lawyers on the Fast Track are the rising talent of the Pennsylvania legal community, those who will shape the community’s future with their leadership, civic work and courtroom expertise. They are the names you’ll want to know and the people you’ll want to watch going forward.
And that’s where you come in. You – our audience and the legal community as a whole – are essential in helping us find the right group to add to our groups of past winners. Previous winners have gone on to roles as city controller of Philadelphia (Richard Negrin, ’02) and Philadelphia Common Pleas Court judge (Daniel Anders, ’05), as well as firm and department leaders and other prestigious positions. So who are the ones to watch in 2012?
We won’t be asking for official nominations until early June, but we’d like you to begin thinking about the outstanding attorneys under the age of 40 in Pennsylvania. Keep them in mind, because when we begin accepting nominations in June, you will play a key role in helping us highlight the excellent work attorneys are doing across the state.
