ROCKFORD, Ill. (August 23, 2021)Scott C. Sullivan, a partner with WilliamsMcCarthy LLP, a full-service Illinois-based law firm headquartered in Rockford, was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in the 28th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America© in the field of commercial litigation. Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. This is the eighth straight year Sullivan has been recognized by Best Lawyers®.

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. Sullivan has consistently been recognized as a top commercial litigator by his peers.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. For the 2022 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, more than 10.8 million evaluations were analyzed, which resulted in more than 66,000 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 (2004-2021), a distinction awarded to only the top five percent of all attorneys in Illinois. Sullivan also has been selected as an Illinois Super Lawyer (2005-2021) by Law and Politics in commercial litigation and corporate law. He is an active volunteer in his community and serves as a Trustee of the Lincoln Academy of Illinois, a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to recognizing notable contributions made by distinguished Illinoisans.
