Seyfarth’s Laura Maechtlen Named a “Rising Stars for 2015”, Law360 Names Top Attorneys Under 40


Laura Maechtlen has been named one of Law360’s “Rising Stars for 2015” in the Employment category. After carefully reviewing a record 1,200 submissions for this year’s distinction, Law360 selected only 145 attorneys across 29 practice areas. Winners were selected based on their career accomplishments in their respective practice areas. Notably, Maechtlen was one of only five lawyers who made this year’s list as a top employment attorney in the country. This is the third consecutive year that a Seyfarth lawyer was named to Law360’s “Rising Stars” list. Barry Miller and Pam Devata were recognized in 2014 and 2013 respectively.
