The Up & Coming Attorneys recognition highlights lawyers in their first 10 years of practice who have already distinguished themselves by their achievements. The criteria for selection are: professional accomplishment, leadership service to the community and the profession or achievement as in-house counsel.

The Unsung Legal Heroes award honors the law firm employees who have consistently go above and beyond the call of duty, often behind the scenes. This award is reserved for the state’s most talented and dedicated legal support professionals.

Both groups were nominated by colleagues, supervisors and their peers, and chosen by a panel of prior winners of the relevant award. This year both groups will be recognized together at a lunch event Sept. 10at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis.
