Best Lawyers of 2013 | News | Spoor and Fisher
Peer review is one of the most trusted means of assessing professional performance and this is the means by which BestLawyers.com compiles its annual lists of legal practitioners worldwide.
Best Lawyers is the world's oldest and arguably most respected peer review guide to the legal profession. To be included in the listings is regarded as a particularly noteworthy accolade, and Spoor & Fisher takes pleasure in announcing that three members of the firm have once again been named among South Africa's best lawyers.The three intellectual property law specialists are:
- Professor Owen Dean
- Jean McIvor
- Charles Webster
Professor Dean is currently a consultant, while Jean McIvor and Charles Webster are partners in the firm.
The first step in process applied by BestLawyers.com entails the candidate being nominated by clients, other lawyers and marketing teams.Nominations are then put to the vote, with listed lawyers in the same geographic region and area of practice as the nominees assessing them on a scale of 1 to 5. Based on the ratings and comments received, the BestLawyers editorial staff then compiles the lists. The integrity and transparency of this methodology enhance the credibility of the lists.
We congratulate the three members of the Spoor & Fisher team, as well as our colleagues in other South African law firms, who have achieved Best Lawyer status
