Daily Journal Honors BuckleySandler's Donna Wilson as One of California's Top Women Lawyers

WASHINGTON, DC and LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2013) - BuckleySandler LLP, a leading national financial services and criminal & civil enforcement defense law firm, announced that the Daily Journal has selected partner Donna L. Wilson, head of the firm's West Coast litigation practice, for its 2013 list of California's "Top Women Lawyers." Each year, the Daily Journal recognizes excellent lawyering and leadership skills among women attorneys in California. In choosing this year's list of the top 75 litigators and 25 corporate transactions and regulatory attorneys, the editors reviewed hundreds of nominations from law firms, public agencies, nonprofits and universities. "Women are helming major litigation and deals and on the cutting edge of regulatory work," they noted. "They are leaders and rainmakers in their law firms in numbers never seen before." Wilson was recognized for her litigation practice.

Wilson has extensive experience in bringing and defending high-dollar, big stakes cases, particularly on behalf of clients in highly regulated industries and activities. Wilson focuses her practice on consumer class and individual actions and counseling. She recently first-chaired a trial that resulted in a one-of-a-kind settlement against the California Air Resources Board and served as lead co-counsel representing a national telecommunications provider in a complex, multi-party California state court action asserting tort, nuisance and other claims arising from the Malibu Canyon Fire. She currently serves as co-lead counsel in a case brought by the Navajo Nation against the US government for approximately eight-figure damages.

"We are very proud of Donna's accomplishments, impact on the legal community and this richly deserved recognition," noted firm Chairman and Executive Partner, Andrew L. Sandler. "Being recognized as one of the top women lawyers in California is a testament to Donna's steadfast commitment to her clients, the firm and legal community."

The list and Wilson's profile appear in a special supplement to the May 8, 2013, issue of the Daily Journal.
