Adams and Reese Special Counsel Leslie A. Wickes, Partner in Charge of the firm’s Jacksonville, Florida office, has been named to Florida Trend Magazine’s 2016 “Florida Legal Elite.” Now in its 13th year, the Florida Legal Elite is a prestigious roster of attorneys chosen for recognition by their peers. Attorneys named to the annual list exemplify a standard of excellence in their profession and practice area.

Wickes was named among the 2016 Florida Legal Elite in the Commercial Litigation category. Practicing law since 1993, Wickes focuses primarily in the area of business litigation. She handles matters involving contracting, corporate governance, employment and agency, trade practices and professional negligence. Wickes also handles litigation involving the formation, licensure, regulation and purchase/sale of insurance companies and insurance-related entities, including retail and wholesale brokers, claims administrators, managing general agencies and service providers.

Florida Legal Elite honorees are chosen through a combination of peer-voting and scoring with additional oversight from a panel of previous Legal Elite winners in various practice areas across the state.

The 2016 Florida Legal Elite list includes 1,144 lawyers and represents fewer than 2% of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.
