LeClairRyan Attorneys Recognized for Leadership by Virginia Lawyers Weekly


Virginia Lawyers Weekly has recognized LeClairRyan CEO and President C. Erik Gustafson and attorney William W. Sleeth III in its annual Leaders in the Law and Up an Coming Lawyers award programs.

The annual awards recognize lawyers who are setting the standard for their peers in Virginia. “Leaders” are recognized for changing the law, serving the community, changing practice or improving Virginia’s justice system, among other accomplishments. Gustafson has led the firm since 2015, having earned a reputation as a skilled litigation attorney and marketing innovator.

The “Up & Coming Lawyers” awards program recognizes lawyers across the Commonwealth who are making their mark within their first 10 years of practice. Sleeth, an estate litigator based in Williamsburg, became one of the youngest partners at an Am Law 200 firm ever in 2013. He has led LeClairRyan’s Estate and Trust Litigation Practice Area Team since 2015.

The 2018 honorees were celebrated at a reception on October 25 at the John Marshall Hotel in Richmond.
