September 24, 2012 – Locke Lord attorney Neal H. Brockmeyer has been recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2013 Los Angeles Corporate Law “Lawyer of the Year,” the only Los Angeles area lawyer to receive the top Corporate Law spot from the peer-review publication. The latest honor caps 27 years in which Brockmeyer has been ranked among the top in his practice area by The Best Lawyers in America, including the 2011 Los Angeles Mergers & Acquisitions “Lawyer of the Year” as well as additional rankings in the fields of Corporate Governance, Corporate Law and Securities Regulation.
“Lawyer of the Year” honorees are chosen in high-profile legal practice areas, with only a single lawyer designated from selected metropolitan areas each year. Selection is based on voting averages obtained from an extensive peer-review process involving fellow lawyers who practice in the same practice areas.
“Our Firm is extremely fortunate to have someone of Neal’s experience and professionalism on our team,” said Los Angeles Managing Partner Mitch Popham. “Year after year, Neal raises the bar and sets an example of how best to serve clients. We congratulate him on yet another high honor.”
Brockmeyer represents public and private companies in their general corporate and securities matters, with an emphasis on mergers and acquisitions, governance, compliance, joint ventures and capital markets. He advises directors, board committees, management and investment bankers and also counsels nonprofit organizations. He is a frequent author on topics related to his practice. He is listed in The International Who’s Who of Merger and Acquisition Lawyers 2012 by the American Bar Association Section of International Law.
