October 10, 2002

Maslon partners David F. Herr and William Z. Pentelovitch have been selected to be included in the 2003-2004 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Best Lawyers is regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. The selection process is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which 15,000 leading attorneys throughout the country cast more than half a million "votes" on the legal abilities of other lawyers.

Mr. Herr practices in the areas of commercial litigation, and is a recognized authority on appellate court practice and commercial, toxic torts, and insurance litigation. He is a Fellow in the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers and heads the firms appellate practice team. Mr. Herr is a 1978 cum laude graduate of the William Mitchell College of Law where he has served as an adjunct professor of law. He earned a Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of Colorado. Mr. Herr has authored several books and articles on appeals and trial practice litigation and he is an elected member of the American Law Institute.

Mr. Pentelovitch, who has held a variety of management roles in the Maslon firm including that of Governance Committee Chair, is currently Chair of its Litigation Group. He has been a trial lawyer at Maslon specializing in all types of business and commercial litigation for 29 years.

While the many dozens of jury trials, bench trials, and appeals which Bill has handled cover the full range of business and commercial litigation including securities, antitrust, employment, banking, real estate, U.C.C., and environmental, Bill has particular depth and breadth of experience in two areas: He has an active national practice in the area of noncompetition, trade secret and unfair competition litigation; and he is a leading Minnesota practitioner in the areas of corporate and partnership governance and internal dispute litigation.
