Welcome to the 2018 Legal Elite, a listing of the top attorneys in Utah as voted by their peers. The Legal Elite highlights top attorneys in 27 categories. This year, the Corporate Law & Transactions category has been split into two categories: Securities Law and Mergers & Acquisitions.
Active members of the Utah State Bar were invited to cast votes for peers whom they consider the state’s best attorneys. Individuals could vote for up to eight attorneys, with maximum of three votes for people within their own firm. Attorneys were not allowed to vote for themselves, and to quality to be on the list, attorneys must have at least five years of practice. Those with five to eight years of practice are included in the Up and Coming category.
Utah Business received thousands of votes. The top vote-getters were further vetted by a panel of senior attorneys from several firms covering multiple practice areas, representing a wealth of knowledge regarding Utah’s legal community. The resulting Legal Elite attorneys are listed here, alphabetized within their area of specialty.
