Rising Star: McDermott Will’s Lisa Richman


Lisa Richman was profiled as a “forceful advocate” and “top-flight international specialist” in arbitration, ranking her among Law360’s first group of top arbitration attorneys under the age of 40. Ms. Richman, whose proficiency in foreign language has been buttressed with years of experience in high-stakes arbitration, said, “Arbitration is constantly dealing with different types of matters, different places around the world, different laws. But it’s also at the intersection of politics, policy, law, history and sometimes philosophy.”
