Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less. While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.

Parr Richey partner Mike Schultz has been invited to become a Fellow of the American College of Coverage Counsel. As noted in the organization's mission statement, The American College of Coverage Counsel (ACCC), established in 2012, "is the preeminent association of U.S. and Canadian lawyers who represent the interests of insurers and policyholders. The ACCC's mission is to advance the creative, ethical and efficient resolution of insurance coverage and extracontractual disputes; to enhance the civility and quality of the practice of insurance law; to provide peer-reviewed scholarship; and to improve the relationships among the members of our profession." The ACCC utilizes a rigorous vetting process prior to inviting nominees to become a Fellow. Fellows of the ACCC include many of the most prominent members of the insurance law bar.

Mr. Schultz advises and advocates for insurance policyholders - both business owners and individuals - in all manner of insurance coverage matters. His advocacy and creative problem solving has helped Parr Richey clients recover millions and millions in policy proceeds, settlements, and judgments in cases where insurers denied coverage or delayed payment. He is honored to be recognized by his peers and looks forward to becoming an active Fellow of the ACCC.

Parr Richey partner, Erin Borissov, will be moderating a panel at the upcoming Electrify Indiana conference being held at The Weston Indianapolis on Thursday, September 22, 2022. The topic will be "Electric Vehicle Funding Opportunities and Perspectives." This event is hosted by Hoosier Energy and Wabash Valley Power Alliance. The full agenda can be found at the link below:
