Sacramento, California – Weintraub Tobin Chediak Coleman Grodin, a business law and litigation firm, announces that Chris Chediak has been named Northern California’s Lawyer of the Year in Corporate Law for 2014 by Best Lawyers in America®. After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Individuals are named to the list based on their particularly high level of peer recognition.
Chris is a shareholder in the firm’s Corporate department. He represents public and private clients in a variety of industries including technology, private equity, agri-business, manufacturing and trade associations. Chris routinely represents and counsels clients on a broad range of legal and business matters involving corporate governance, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, fiduciary duties and licensing and distribution arrangements. His practice encompasses transactions for companies of all sizes ranging from growth companies to well capitalized publicly traded corporations, for profit and non-profit companies, partnerships, limited liability companies and joint ventures.
Chris was also named 2009 "Lawyer of the Year" by Best Lawyers.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
