Chan has been selected as one of Law360’s Competition Rising Stars for 2017, and Jason L. Lichtman has been selected as a Consumer Protection Rising Star for 2017.
Law360 notes its Rising Star awards “recognize attorneys under 40 who have demonstrated outstanding career accomplishments,” and will publish short profiles of both Ms. Chan and Mr. Lichtman, along with the other honorees, in the coming weeks.
