Scott Sullivan Named to The Best Lawyers in America© for Fourth Consecutive Year

Scott C. SullivanWilliamsMcCarthy LLP is pleased to announce that partner Scott C. Sullivan has been named to the 24th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. For the fourth straight year, Sullivan was selected by his peers in the field of commercial litigation.

Sullivan is a partner in the firm’s business law and commercial litigation practice groups.  His client base ranges from small family-held businesses to Fortune 100 companies. He has litigated business disputes at all court levels, including state, federal and appellate. He has consistently been recognized as a top commercial litigator by his peers.

Best Lawyers® has published its list for more than three decades, earning the respect of the profession, the media and the public as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals. For the 2018 edition, 7.4 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in more than 58,000 leading lawyers being included in the new edition. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.

Sullivan is an honors graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Notre Dame Law School. Other honors include selection by his peers for inclusion in Leading Lawyers Network (2004-2017), a distinction awarded to only the top five percent of all attorneys in Illinois. Sullivan has also been selected as an Illinois Super Lawyer (2005-2017) by Law and Politics in commercial litigation and corporate law. In addition, he has received an AV Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, an honor reserved for those attorneys who exhibit the highest level of  ethics and legal ability.
