Super Lawyers rates lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
The firm’s Super Lawyers honors follow multiple other prominent recognitions the firm and its lawyers have earned recently. Partners Jerry Glover and Linda Mensch were named 2017 “Lawyers of the Year” in Entertainment Law in Chicago by Best Lawyers®. Tom Leavens and Peter Strand were also named to the 2017 Best Lawyers® list for Chicago Entertainment Law, and John Beiter, who joined the firm’s Nashville office last year, was named to the 2017 Best Lawyers® list for Nashville Entertainment Law – Music.
Leavens Strand & Glover also received the highly coveted “Band 1” ranking in Illinois Media & Entertainment Law: Transactions from Chambers USA in 2016, a designation the firm has secured each year since its founding in 2009. Tom Leavens, Peter Strand, Jerry Glover and Linda Mensch each earned Band 1 individual lawyer rankings in this category, as well.
