Portland Monthly’s “Best Lawyers” 2008 Includes Three CVK Partners

The following attorneys were listed as part of the 366 best lawyers in the Portland metropolitan area: Thomas W. Brown, Appellate Law; Thomas M. Christ, Appellate Law, First Amendment Law and Insurance Law; and Walter H. Sweek, Personal Injury Litigation. This year’s nomination pool was asked to grade other nominees in their field in response to the question: “If you had a close friend or relative who needed a lawyer in your field, and you could not handle the case yourself, to whom would you refer them?”

The list was compiled in association with The Best Lawyers in America, which is regarded as the preeminent referral guide to the legal profession in the United States. Beginning in 1983, the guide compiles its list through an extensive peer review survey in which thousands of the top lawyers in the U.S. confidentially evaluate their professional peers.
