57 Heyl Royster Attorneys Recognized by Leading Lawyers

04/22/2016

Forty-five Heyl Royster attorneys appear in the Law Bulletin Publishing Company's 2016 list of Illinois Leading Lawyers, with another 12 attorneys included in its list of Illinois Emerging Lawyers. In a testament to the quality and ethical standards of the firm's lawyers, more than 65% of Heyl Royster's partners are Leading Lawyers in at least one area of law – one of the highest percentages in the state.

"Lawyers across Illinois know Heyl Royster as a business law firm that covers the state from its offices in Peoria, Chicago, Edwardsville, Rockford, Springfield and Urbana," said Scott Anderson, director of Leading Lawyers and publisher of Leading Lawyers Magazine. "It's no surprise, then, that so many Illinois lawyers continue to recognize the firm's attorneys as legal players — or that they recognize in our surveys the many contributions that Heyl Royster's emerging, young lawyers will make to the profession."

Leading Lawyers constitute less than five percent of all Illinois registered attorneys. Emerging Lawyers – a smaller list of the state's younger, up-and-coming lawyers – make up less than two percent of attorneys.
