McDonough Named Best Lawyers 2023 Litigation - Labor and Employment "Lawyer of the Year" in Wilmington

August 30, 2022

Firm chair Kathleen Furey McDonough was named the Best Lawyers 2023 Labor Law - Management “Lawyer of the Year” in Wilmington. This is McDonough’s sixth time receiving this accolade. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the "Lawyer of the Year," making this accolade particularly significant.

"Lawyers of the Year" are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessment period. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

McDonough has served as chair of Potter Anderson since 2018 and is the first woman to lead a major Delaware law firm. She is the founder of the firm’s labor and employment practice, representing management clients in all manner of labor and employment disputes as well as representing secondary and post-secondary institutions with respect to education law issues.

Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on peer-review evaluation. For more information, visit the Best Lawyers website.
