On June 29, the Ethisphere Institute announced its listing of "2011 Attorneys Who Matter," which includes three Willkie litigation partners: Martin Weinstein, Michael Schachter and Mei Lin Kwan-Gett. The annual listing recognizes "100 attorneys who have had a significant, positive impact on corporate ethics and compliance" and comprises attorneys in all areas of practice, including law firms, federal agencies and major companies.

Mr. Weinstein has been recognized on "Attorneys Who Matter" since its inception in 2009, and this is the second consecutive year for Mr. Schachter and Ms. Kwan-Gett to be included on this prestigious listing.

The following criteria were used in determining the list of winning attorneys: 1) recognized expertise, 2) peer/client endorsements, 3) high-profile litigation, 4) number of cases won, 5) high-profile clients, 6) public service, 7) legal community engagement, 8) academic involvement and 9) other awards and recognitions.
