Minnesota Lawyer recently recognized four Minneapolis firm members to receive the honor of being named "Up & Coming Attorneys" and "Unsung Legal Heroes." 

Sharon Roberg-Perez was a recipient of the "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. Ms. Roberg-Perez focuses her practice on Intellectual Property Litigation and Hatch-Waxman Litigation

Michelle Marlowe-Sistad, Deb McNeil, and Pam O'Brien were recipients of the "Unsung Legal Heroes" award honoring 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 staff. Ms. Marlowe-Sistad was recognized in the IT category; Ms. McNeil in the Legal Secretary category; and Ms. O'Brien in the paralegal category. 

This year's 41 honorees, who were nominated by colleagues, supervisors, and their peers, were recognized at an awards luncheon at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis on September 12, 2012.
