The Best Lawyers in America®, a Best Lawyers publication, has named Beveridge & Diamond Principal Paul Hagen the 2019 “Lawyer of the Year” for Environmental Law in Washington, DC. Best Lawyers bestows “Lawyer of the Year” honors on only one lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area.

Paul advises a diverse group of multinational corporations and trade associations on market access, global supply chain, and product stewardship matters in the U.S. and in key markets worldwide. Paul's practice has been prominently recognized for many years by Best Lawyers and other leading ranking publications such as Chambers USA, Super Lawyers and the International Who's Who of Environment Lawyers.

“We’re proud that Paul has received this well-deserved recognition,” said Chairman Ben Wilson. “Paul delivers outstanding legal support to our clients and we are very pleased he has received this top ranking from Best Lawyers.”

The “Lawyer of the Year” 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.

In total, 20 B&D attorneys from across the U.S. were recognized for 2019.
