June 5, 2015

Dykema, a leading national law firm, announced today that four of its Los Angeles-based attorneys have been named 2015 Rising Stars in the Southern California edition of Super Lawyers.

The Rising Star list is the result of an exhaustive, multi-phase selection process that mirrors the patented methodology used to assemble the Super Lawyers list. Attorneys designated as Rising Stars are up-and-coming attorneys who are 40 years of age or younger and have practiced law for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team to receive this honor.

The Dykema attorneys named on the 2015 Southern California Rising Stars list, identified by the practice area(s) for which they are being recognized, are:

  • Janet Nalbandyan – General Litigation, Business Litigation, Intellectual Property Litigation
  • Phu C. Nguyen – General Litigation, Intellectual Property Litigation
  • Janis Hui Ozaki – Business Litigation, Real Estate: Business
  • Jason T. Riddick – Business Litigation, Securities Litigation, Civil Litigation: Defense

This is the fourth-consecutive year that both Nalbandyan and Ozaki have been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers. For Riddick, this marks the third-straight year he has earned Rising Star honors. This is Nguyen’s second appearance on the Rising Star list.
