Thompson Burton PLLC would like to congratulate partner Ronn Steen on his recent accomplishments. Steen was selected by his peers for inclusion in the 23rd Edition of The Best Lawyers in America© in the fields of Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law, as well as Litigation – Bankruptcy.
According to the Best Lawyers® website, over 83,000 leading attorneys globally are eligible to vote. The 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America© analyzed 7.3 million votes in order to select leading lawyers in specific practice areas. Since lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers® is considered an outstanding honor.
Steen has also been the recipient of another prestigious honor this year – inclusion in the 2016 Mid-South Super Lawyers list. According to the Super Lawyers website, the selection process uses not only peer nominations and evaluations, but also independent research. Each attorney selected has been evaluated on twelve indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. No more than five percent of the lawyers in Tennessee are selected by Super Lawyers.
“It is a privilege and honor to be recognized by my peers, clients, and these organizations,” stated Steen. “I am humbled by these honors, and will continue to strive for excellence for my clients. Thompson Burton, PLLC fosters an environment of excellence in the practice of law and client service, and so I will endeavor to continue professional excellence in my practice.”
Please join us in congratulating Ronn Steen on his selection.
