April 23, 2013

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm providing Intellectual Property (IP) and business-related legal services to entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces that Peter Lemire, Esq. has been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

For the second year in a row, Lemire has received the Rising Star nomination and designation, given to lawyers who are under 40 or who have practiced law for less than 10 years. Lawyers are instructed to nominate their peers whom they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. The Super Lawyers attorney-led research team reviews the credentials of potential candidates and assigns points based on a set of defined evaluation criteria. The research staff also confirms that nominees are properly licensed, and in good standing with the state licensing agency.

Super Lawyers Magazine features the list and profiles of selected attorneys, is distributed to attorneys in the state or region and the ABA-accredited law school libraries, and is also published as a special section in leading city and regional magazines across the country. The Super Lawyers selection process has recently received a patent (U.S. Pat. No. 8,412,564) from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, a distinction that is relevant to both attorneys and consumers, as it further demonstrates credibility as an impartial third-party rating system.

A founding member of the law firm of Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, Lemire previously served as in house counsel to various companies in the Denver Metro area in industries ranging from high tech dot-coms to strategic investment firms specializing in the purchase and sale of distressed commercial debt. Lemire has advised companies on issues such as general corporate and business law, employment law, mergers and acquisitions, contract drafting and negotiation, software licensing, strategic relationships, copyright, trademark and cyber law. He holds a Bachelor of Science in economics and a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Purdue University, a Juris Doctor from the University of Denver College of Law, and an MBA in finance from The University of Denver Daniels College of Business. Lemire is a Member of the Colorado Bar Association, the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Business Law section, the ABA Cyberspace Law and Internet Law Committees as well as the ABA’s subcommittee on Electronic Commerce.
