George Hanson named National Law Journal’s Trailblazers Plaintiffs’ Lawyers

Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP announced that George Hanson was named to the Plaintiffs’ Lawyers Trailblazers list published by The National Law Journal. The third annual list “spotlights a handful of individuals that are truly agents of change” and celebrates those making their mark in various aspects of legal work on the plaintiffs’ side. 

Hanson is honored for his work building a nationally recognized wage and hour practice, as well as a practice representing highly-compensated individuals through executive departures, whistleblowing claims, violations of Sarbanes-Oxley and unfair competition issues.

Regarding his practice, Hanson told the publication “I’m uniquely positioned to represent workers on both sides of the spectrum, whether low-wage workers or Fortune 500 executives. There are a lot of shake-ups at the high executive level.”

He has recently represented a senior lawyer in the general counsel’s office of a Fortune 500 company, a senior vice president who left a financial services firm to work for a competitor and a sales executive at a tech startup who left the company to work in a similar space.

In the past 15 years, Hanson has been lead or co-lead counsel in more than 125 wage and hour actions filed in state and federal courts across the country. To date, these wage and hour cases have obtained relief in excess of $280 million on behalf of firm clients. He is also a frequent speaker regarding trial practice and wage and hour matters nationwide.

He has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America for commercial litigation, employment law- individuals, and mass tort litigation/class actions- plaintiffs; named a Best Lawyers mass tort litigation/class actions-plaintiffs “Lawyer of the Year” in Kansas City, Missouri; selected to Best of the Bar by the Kansas City Business Journal; elected a Missouri Super Lawyer; named a “Local Litigation Star” by Benchmark Plaintiffs; and is rated AV by Martindale Hubbell.
