Three Shearman & Sterling lawyers—partners Robin Bayley (Abu Dhabi-Project Development & Finance) and Jeremy Kutner (London-Mergers & Acquisitions) and counsel Christopher LaVigne (New York-Litigation)—have been named "Rising Stars" by Law360. These awards recognize “attorneys under the age of 40 whose legal accomplishments belie their age,” according to Law360. The “Rising Stars” were selected from more than 1,000 nominees in 28 different practice areas around the world.
Bayley was one of five lawyers honored in the project finance category, Kutner was one of 10 in mergers & acquisitions and LaVigne was one of five in white collar. All three lawyers will be profiled in Law360 in the coming weeks.
