Emily Campbell has been recognized as one of the New York Metro “Super Lawyers” for 2017 by Thomson-Reuters.  Lawyers are selected to Super Lawyers from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  Notably, only 5% of all attorneys practicing law in the United States ever achieve Super Lawyer status.

The Super Lawyers ratings are coveted and cannot be “bought.”  The process used by Thomson-Reuters to identify those attorneys worthy of Super Lawyers status is patented.  Only those attorneys with a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement are selected.  That selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.

“When the award package arrived, I was incredibly surprised,” said Ms. Campbell.  “It is harder to get recognized for corporate work when you work on private deals, so it’s taken a long time to get this important recognition.”

The Super Lawyers designation is a validation of the sophisticated business practice Ms. Campbell has developed over the last 25 years.  “It’s my 25th anniversary this year.  This recognition is the perfect anniversary gift,” Ms. Campbell said.

Ms. Campbell’s name was listed in the Business/Corporate category in the widely-distributed national edition of the Super Lawyers Magazine, and her name was also listed in the Business/Corporate category in the popular Super Lawyers Magazine included as an insert in The New York Times published on October 1, 2017.  Ms. Campbell was very delighted that she was recognized in the Business/Corporate category, as this is the principal focus of her practice.  “Being recognized for my Business/Corporate practice is a great honor, since it is an extremely competitive area of practice,” Ms. Campbell said. Her profile is available on the Super Lawyers website.

“It truly is an honor to be named Super Lawyer this year,”  Ms. Campbell said.  “I thank my peers for recognizing my achievements, hard work and dedication to the profession.”
