From more than 1,000 nominees all less than 40 years old, Law360 has named three White & Case lawyers among its "Rising Stars" for 2017. The magazine selects Rising Stars based on its evaluation of the young lawyers' career accomplishments in their respective practice areas, according to Law360.
The White & Case Rising Stars are:
- Tim Hickman (London), Privacy and Data Protection
- Karalyn Mildorf (Washington, DC), International Trade
- Matthew Wood (Abu Dhabi), Project Finance
Over the next few weeks, Law360 will print profiles of the new Rising Stars.
