Merchant & Gould is honored to announce that partner Rachel Zimmerman has been named both an Attorney of the Year 2014 by Minnesota Lawyer and one of Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s “40 Under 40" for 2015.
“Rachel is truly dedicated to the practice of law and the legal profession,” said Brian Batzli, CEO and managing partner. “She has an incredibly sharp legal mind and consistently achieves favorable results on behalf of her clients. It is a privilege to count her as an officer and shareholder of Merchant & Gould.”
Each year, Minnesota Lawyer recognizes the best achievements in the Minnesota legal profession with the Attorneys of the Year awards. This year’s 23 winners were chosen based on their leadership, involvement in major cases or other newsworthy events, excellence in corporate or transactional services, and public service. Nominations are submitted by judges, bar groups, clients and fellow attorneys, with honorees chosen by a panel of past winners.
Rachel’s “40 Under 40” recognition is especially noteworthy given the record number of nominees this year – 600 – and because she is being recognized for leadership beyond the legal community. She was selected based on her professional and community achievements, with wholehearted testimonials provided by a wide range of individuals.
Rachel’s year is getting off to a wonderful start to be sure, and all of her colleagues extend sincere congratulations. Bravo, Rachel!
