Leading Lawyers has recognized eight Drinker Biddle & Reath attorneys as Emerging Lawyers in Illinois, a distinction earned by fewer than two percent of all lawyers licensed to practice law in the state. The list is a culmination of an extensive peer review process with only those lawyers who are most often recommended, and later approved by the Leading Lawyers Advisory Board, selected as Emerging Lawyers.

Law Bulletin Publishing Company, the publishers of Leading Lawyers whose publications include the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin and Chicago Lawyer, has been a respected source of information for the Illinois legal community for more than 160 years.
