LOS ANGELES, CA – June 21, 2016 – Leech Tishman is pleased to announce that partner Dr. Laura M. Lloyd  was recognized as a 2016 Southern California Rising Star by Southern California Super Lawyers Magazine for a fourth consecutive year.

The California Rising Star is an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in their practice, and only 2.5% of licensed attorneys in Southern California receive this distinction.

Attorneys selected as Super Lawyers are among the top five percent of Southern California’s licensed attorneys. Southern California Super Lawyers Magazine recognizes outstanding attorneys in more than 70 areas of practice using a rigorous, multiphase selection process that considers 12 separate indicators of peer recognition, professional achievement and high ethical standards. The Rising Stars recognition utilizes a similar selection process, but spotlights attorneys who are 40 years of age or younger or who have been in practice for ten years or less.

Dr. Laura M. Lloyd is a partner in the Intellectual Property Practice Group in Leech Tishman’s California offices, including San Diego, Pasadena, Orange County, Upland and Riverside offices. With her extensive skill and experience in molecular biology, immunology and virology, registered Patent Attorney Dr. Lloyd helps companies and universities protect their intellectual property.
