Litigation partner Andrew Carlson was among 33 honorees selected for Minnesota Lawyer's Attorneys of the Year. He received this honor for his incredible work spearheading Taft’s firm-wide pro bono efforts. This will be Minnesota Lawyer's 20th year celebrating accomplished attorneys from around Minnesota. The selection criteria were based on leadership in the profession, involvement in major cases, other newsworthy events, excellence in corporate or transactional services, and public service. The nominations were submitted by judges, bar groups, clients, and attorneys. Carlson will be honored at a virtual event that will take place on Feb. 17, 2021, and profiled in the Attorneys of the Year magazine.
