Congratulations to Steven Toll, Joseph Sellers, Kit Pierson and Agnieszka Fryszman on their selection to the 2013 - 2014 Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America.  This recognition is one of the highest and most elite honors that any of the 1.2 million members of the U.S. legal profession can receive.

All four partners were selected for this recognition based on their leadership in the U.S. legal profession and the impact that their work had over the past year.

“Toll added to his long track record of success in securities litigation by serving as co-lead counsel in the mortgage-backed securities case against Countrywide, which settled for $500M.”

Joseph Sellers

“Sellers leads one of the top plaintiff-side employment practices, which is continuing its fight for female Wal-Mart employees and has taken on the wage claims of McDonald's workers.”

Kit Pierson

“Co-chair of the firm's antitrust practice, Pierson scored big with a $400M verdict (trebled to $1.1B) in a class action against Dow over urethane price fixing.”

Agnieszka Fryszman

“Corporate giants have much to fear in the fearless Fryszman, leader of one of the best private international human rights practices in the world.”
