The Best Lawyers in America list for 2012 has been announced and four lawyers in the Portland office of regional law firm Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt were designated as "Lawyers of the Year" for the Portland, Oregon, region in their respective practice areas. The four lawyers are:
Peter E. Heuser – Copyright Law

Those honored as Lawyers of the Year received particularly high ratings among peers for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.

These distinctions are in addition to the 39 Schwabe attorneys who were named to the overall Best Lawyers in America list for 2012.
