Beau Cox (Dallas), Sumera Khan, Eliot Turner (Houston and Washington, DC) and Amanda Wait (Washington, DC) were selected for the award, recognizing the accomplishments of "the top young talent in their respective litigation communities" in the United States.
To be considered for the list, lawyers must be aged 40 or younger, handle major litigation cases and deemed the most promising emerging talent in their litigation practice areas by peers and clients.
Winners were selected after extensive research among litigation practitioners and case examination.
