Local attorneys recognized as ‘Women of Influence’
MIDDLEBURY/BURLINGTON — The women attorneys of Langrock Sperry & Wool LLP, a law firm with offices in Middlebury and Burlington, were predominant among the female Vermont attorneys recognized by The Best Lawyers in America in its 2017 “Women of Influence” listings.
Of the 33 separate types of law listed, Langrock women were named in 14 categories, or more than 42 percent of the total. And of the 53 individual listings, Langrock women occupied 20 spots. In all, six different female Langrock attorneys were recognized: Alison J. Bell, Ellen Mercer Fallon, Emily J. Joselson, Susan M. Murray, Lisa B. Shelkrot, and Sarah Gentry Tischler. In addition, Best Lawyers named Lisa B. Shelkrot the 2017 “Lawyer of the Year” for Construction Litigation.
In contrast, the firm with the second-most recognitions was named in only eight categories, with nine individual listings, for three different attorneys.
This recognition is timely, as the women attorneys of Langrock Sperry & Wool are engaged in a year-long initiative throughout 2017, sponsoring events bringing women across the state together to share experiences and knowledge on a variety of meaningful matters.
