Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Spangenberg Shibley & Liber partner Peter Brodhead’s peers have recognized him in Martindale-Hubbell’s list of Top Rated - AV Preeminent Lawyers in Mass Tort Litigation.
This year, Martindale-Hubbell teamed with The American Lawyer, a news and information provider for legal and commercial real estate markets, to publish the first Top Rated Lawyers section for Mass Tort attorneys.
What it means to be a Top Rated – AV Preeminent Lawyer
Candidates are chosen for this award based on a three tiered rating system ranging from “Rated” to “AV Preeminent.” The AV Preeminent rating, as stated on Martindale – Hubbell’s website, is a “significant rating accomplishment – a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.”
This indeed applies to Mr. Brodhead, who has been with the firm for over 30 years. In that time, Mr. Brodhead has litigated unsafe drug cases against pharmaceutical companies and served as trial counsel, plaintiffs' liaison counsel, class counsel, and science committee chair in a number of multidistrict litigation cases. He’s garnered numerous awards, including this year’s Best Lawyers in America list.
What is the Martindale – Hubbell Rating System?
The Martindale-Hubbell Rating System is an objective indicator of a lawyer’s ethical standards and professional ability. Researchers gather evaluations from other bar members as well as judiciary in the U.S. and Canada. A lawyer’s rating reflects a high general ethical standards score combined with a legal ability numerical rating.
