Polsinelli Shughart congratulates two of our attorneys in Los Angeles selected for inclusion in 2012 Southern California Super Lawyers. Only five percent of attorneys in each state are selected for this honor.

Super Lawyers, who are selected by fellow attorneys from more than 70 practice areas, have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Lawyers cannot nominate themselves and in-firm votes are only counted if they are matched by an out-of-firm nomination.

The following attorneys are listed as 2012 Southern California Super Lawyers.   

·         Michael J. Connell - Securities & Corporate Finance  

·         Lisa Greer Quateman - Business/Corporate 

Michael J. Connell is a nationally recognized attorney in securities laws and advises the firm's clients on disclosure and investment advisory matters. He has more than 45 years of experience in handling mergers, acquisitions, corporate restructurings, venture capital investments and advisory assignments to boards of directors and special committees.


Lisa Greer Quateman is the managing partner of the Los Angeles office of Polsinelli  Shughart. Quateman’s practice focuses on transactional and advisory work in the areas of finance, corporate and real estate. Prior to joining Polsinelli Shughart in 2011, Quateman’s women-owned municipal bond counsel firm was the largest of its kind in California. The Los Angeles Business Journal selected Lisa Greer Quateman as one of Los Angeles’ Top 100 Attorneys.


With the acquisition of Quateman LLP, Polsinelli Shughart added Los Angeles to its roster of offices which includes Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, New York, Phoenix, St. Louis, Washington, D.C. and Wilmington, Del., and the expanding ability to serve clients’ needs coast to coast.
