Rising Stars Highlights the Top Lawyers in Southern California

Jul 08, 2015

Super Lawyers, the Thomson Reuters lawyer rating service, has announced the Southern California Rising Stars list for 2015. These attorneys receive the honor after the completion of the region’s patented selection process, comprised of peer nomination, independent research and peer review.


The Rising Stars list is developed using the same patented multiphase selection process used for the Super Lawyers list except:

  • To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.
  • While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars.

This issue features attorney Ken Lee, who exemplifies the quintessential American story. Having moved from Seoul, South Korea to America at the age of four, he is a first generation immigrant. After graduating from Harvard Law, Lee’s first major case came after the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. In this case Lee represented real estate leasers in the towers, arguing against insurance companies whether the attacks warranted either one or two claims.


“Essentially, the court ruled the 9/11 attacks represented 1.4 occurrences: a stance only lawyers could come up with,” says Lee.  Lee next moved into the public sector, becoming a federal prosecutor for the White House where he worked under George W. Bush. Read more about Ken Lee’s story in this edition of Super Lawyers Magazine.
