Minnesota Lawyer recently recognized four Minneapolis firm members to receive the honor of being named "Up & Coming Attorneys" and "Unsung Legal Heroes."
Michael Reif and Angela Muñoz-Kaphing were recipients of the 2015 "Up & Coming Attorneys" award, which is presented to select lawyers within their first 10 years of practice who have already distinguished themselves by their achievements. According to Minnesota Lawyer, the criteria for selection are: professional accomplishment, leadership service to the community and the profession, or achievement as in-house counsel. Angela focuses her practice on patent litigation, while Michael focuses his on financial industry disputes and Native American law and policy issues.
Maggie Palmisano and Susan Style, paralegals at Robins Kaplan LLP, were recipients of the 2015 "Unsung Legal Heroes" award. This award honors law firm employees who have constantly gone above and beyond the call of duty, often behind the scenes. Minnesota Lawyer states that the award is reserved for the State's most talented and dedicated legal support professionals.
