Eight Bracewell Attorneys Honored as 2016 Texas Rising Stars

HOUSTON – Bracewell LLP had eight attorneys recognized as Thomson Reuters’ 2016 Texas Rising Stars. Rising Stars, an affiliate of Super Lawyers, determines honorees through peer nominations and third-party research. While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.   Bracewell attorneys selected as 2016 Texas Rising Stars are:   Austin Patrick A. Caballero Chad P. Ennis   Dallas Brian C. Mitchell   Houston Christopher L. Dodson Christopher D. Heard Blair R. Loocke Brian P. Teaff Andrew W. Zeve
  Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The Super Lawyers patented selection process involves three basic steps: creation of the candidate pool; evaluation of candidates by the research department; and peer evaluation by practice area. All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but who meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, go through the Rising Stars selection process.
