Fourteen Quarles & Brady Attorneys Recognized Nationally

MILWAUKEE, WIS. - The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced that fourteen of its attorneys have been selected by their peers as "Lawyers of the Year" in The Best Lawyers in America® 2014.

Each year, Best Lawyers compiles its list of "Lawyers of the Year," who practice in high-profile, specialty areas of law in large legal communities.
