The awards are based on the recommendations of clients and private practice lawyers from around the world. The winners were announced at a black tie Awards Ceremony at Plaisterer’s Hall in London on 15 May where the leading lawyers and firms from 35 practice areas and over 50 countries were recognised.
The awards are based on a number of factors, including general feedback received in the research process, past performance in the research and the overall aggregate number of weighted votes cast in their favour. This is the third time a Lifetime Achievement award has been presented, with Mr Zeidman following in the footsteps of previous winners Theodore Garrett and Rodgin Cohen. Rupert Wilson, editor of Who’s Who Legal, said “His nearly 50 years of private practice have seen him be a pioneer, and then a market-leading authority, in franchising law. Mr Zeidman was Who’s Who Legal Franchise lawyer of the year nine times in a row from 2005 to 2013, and we now crown this incredible achievement by presenting him with our Lifetime achievement award.”
Who’s Who Legal lists only the leading lawyers in each field, based exclusively on the findings of an independent six-month research process that encompasses feedback from private practitioners, clients and other experts in the sector. It is impossible to buy entry into these publications, only lawyers who score most highly according to our independent international research criteria are listed.
