WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (July 15, 2015) – Gunster, one of Florida’s oldest and largest full-service business law firms, is pleased to announce that 38 of its attorneys have been included in the 2015 Florida Super Lawyers list, and an additional 9 were named Rising Stars.
Out of Gunster’s 47 award-winning attorneys, 12 are longtime honorees who have not skipped a year in receiving the honor – a difficult feat because Florida Super Lawyers restricts the list to the highest scoring 5 percent each year. Their names are in red below.
