Attorneys Fred Pritzker and Brendan Flaherty were named “Attorneys of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer, a legal publication. They attended the banquet yesterday and received their awards. Fred also received the Minnesota Lawyer Circle of Excellence award for winning Attorney of the Year for the second time.
Fred and Brendan were honored for their work in the area of food safety litigation and for championing children’s rights. In 2014, they resolved a case where a number of children were severely injured after ingesting a food product. Against incredible odds, they fought for almost 2 years until they obtained an aggregate eight-figure settlement for their clients.
