FP’s Award Winning Publications
Two Fisher Phillips publications have been named winners of the prestigious Burton Awards, presented by the Association of Legal Administers annually to top legal writing in a number of categories. Winners are selected by a panel of law school professors representing Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan, as well as leading legal professionals and members of the judiciary. Recipients will be honored during a dinner June 12th at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
Jim McDonald was named a 2006 Burton Award winner for his article "I Want A Nicer Boss." Jim is one of only 30 attorneys honored from the nations 750 largest law firms. This award is given in recognition of effective legal writing, honoring law firm partners who use plain, clear and concise language. Fisher Phillips Chairman Roger Quillen said, "Jims superb writing skills are a reflection of his superb legal skills. He has authored numerous articles for legal and scholarly journals and has contributed to other wider-circulation publications. This is a well-deserved recognition of his contributions."
The 2005-2006 Employment Law Reference Guide, used as the seminar handout at the Firm's national seminars last year in Las Vegas and Atlanta, was named Best Legal Compendium. The Reference Guide consists of almost two dozen separate entries in topics relating to labor and employment law. The criteria for selecting the best publication include the writing style and technique, research, analysis and content. According to Firm Chairman Roger Quillen, "Our firm produces educational documents such as the law reference guide to help business owners and managers better understand laws they must work within. This honor is another validation of the professionalism our attorneys and staff display in everything they do."
