Fort Lauderdale attorney Jonathan Pollard, the principal of Pollard PLLC, has been selected to the 2016 Super Lawyers Rising Stars list. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected as Rising Stars based on peer reviews and independent research.
Pollard focuses his practice on competition law and has extensive experience litigating non-compete, trade secret and antitrust matters.
Pollard’s selection is particularly noteworthy in that he is one of a relatively small number of attorneys on the Rising Stars list who has his own firm. Pollard began his career at the prominent litigation firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner. In 2012, he left the firm to launch his own practice. Pollard PLLC presently has three lawyers in their Fort Lauderdale office and plans to launch a Washington, D.C. office in June.
Some of the firm’s most recent victories include successfully defending a trade secret case in the Middle District of Florida and recovering prevailing party attorneys fees and winning an appeal of a preliminary injunction in Florida’s 5th DCA in a non-compete case that received state and national media attention.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. Super Lawyers Magazines also feature editorial profiles of attorneys who embody excellence in the practice of law. For more information about Super Lawyers, visit SuperLawyers.com.
