  Alan M. Kaplan, Employment & Labor

Alan Kaplan, a Principal at Masuda Funai, was named an Illinois Super Lawyer for 2017. Super Lawyers are selected using a multiphase rating process, starting with peer nominations and evaluations, combined with third party research. Only five percent of attorneys in Illinois receive this distinction.

In addition, two lawyers from Masuda Funai were named Illinois Rising Stars for 2017 by Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. This selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.

To be eligible for consideration as a Rising Star, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for less than 10 years, and the list includes fewer than 2.5 percent of the practicing attorneys in Illinois.
