Super Lawyers announces that Fortis Law Partners’ Julie Herzog and Michelle McDonald have been designated by peers to join group of outstanding attorneys in practice in Colorado for 2014.

Both Michelle and I feel privileged and humbled to receive this recognition from Super Lawyers,” said Julie Herzog, member at Fortis Law Partners.

Fortis Law Partners, a Denver-based law firm, is pleased to announce that two of its partners, Julie Herzog and Michelle McDonald, have been selected to the 2014 Colorado Super Lawyers list and the 2014 Colorado Rising Stars list, respectively. The exclusive Super Lawyers list recognizes no more than five percent of attorneys in Colorado, while no more than two and a half percent of attorneys in Colorado are selected for the Rising Stars list.

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented, multi-phase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. The objective of the Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys to be used as a resource for both referring attorneys and consumers seeking legal counsel.

Julie Herzog joined Fortis in 2003 and specializes in corporate, securities, and merger and acquisition transactions. She has handled transactions valued at over $4 billion for major public companies and investment banks and enjoys working with a diverse clientele ranging from Fortune 100 corporations to startups, family offices, and venture capital and private equity funds.

Michelle McDonald is a member of the firm’s real estate & development practice and brings 20 years of combined practical and legal experience on all aspects of commercial real estate, including acquisitions and dispositions, structuring of complex corporate and commercial real estate lending, licensing and regulatory matters for manufactured housing, hospitality transactions, retail, office and industrial leasing, build-to-suit and large-scale development, and land use transactions.

“Both Michelle and I feel privileged and humbled to receive this recognition from Super Lawyers,” said Julie Herzog. “It is quite an honor for each of us because the lists are the result of peer review and an extensive selection process. It is also exciting that Michelle has been selected to the Rising Star list for the third consecutive year.”
