Membership is determined through a peer nominating process and third-party research to certify qualifications of superior leadership, reputation, influence, stature and public profile. Other honors include Top 40 Under 40 (also an invitation-only process); Utah Legal Elite, a listing published by Utah Business Magazine highlighting the top lawyers in Utah as voted by their peers.
