Eight King & Spalding Lawyers Selected to 2007 New York Super Lawyers List
Eight King & Spalding attorneys have been named to the 2007 New York Super Lawyers list. Super Lawyers are the top attorneys in their respective practice areas, selected by their peers and verified by the attorney-led research staff at Law & Politics.

The eight King & Spalding attorneys appearing in this year’s New York Super Lawyers list are:

* E. William Bates - Mergers & Acquisitions
* Richard A. Cirillo - Business Litigation
* H. Slayton Dabney - Bankruptcy & Creditor/ Debtor Rights
* Ethan Horwitz - Intellectual Property Litigation
* Edward G. Kehoe - Business Litigation
* Clark W. Lackert - Intellectual Property
* Michael J. Malone - Securities Litigation
* Robert F. Perry - Intellectual Property Litigation

The Super Lawyers selection process began with a survey that was sent to nearly 90,000 attorneys in the New York metro area. Attorneys were asked to vote for the best lawyers they had personally observed in action. Each lawyer was given a score based on the number of votes received and the source of those votes (votes of lawyers from other firms carry more weight than those from lawyers in the same firm). The Super Lawyers research team evaluated the credentials of the nominees and ensured that each lawyer is in good standing with the State Bar of New York.

A blue-ribbon review panel consisting of top New York lawyers reviewed and scored the list of nominees in each area of practice. The top point-getters were selected as Super Lawyers, the top 5 percent of licensed attorneys in the state.
