NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- For the second consecutive year, Adam J. Gana has been named to the New York Rising StarsSM list. Only 2.5% of lawyers in the state make this prestigious list.

Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP is proud to announce that Senior Litigation Counsel and head of the firm's Securities Litigation and Arbitration Department, Adam J. Gana, has been selected for inclusion in the 2012 edition of Rising StarsSM, a division of the well-known Super Lawyers® rating service reserved for attorneys who are 40 or under or who have been practicing law for up to 10 years.

There is no question of the influence that young trial lawyers have on the civil and criminal justice systems in the United States. Following in the footsteps of their mentors and charging through uncharted territories, these young professionals prove day in and day out that their enthusiasm and commitment to quality legal counsel can make all the difference for their own clients, not to mention plaintiffs and defendants in future cases. Rising StarsSM recognizes these lawyers.

Being named a Rising StarsSM is quite an accomplishment, one achieved by no more than 2.5% of lawyers in the state. The process begins with a general survey of lawyers. These legal professionals are asked to nominate other lawyers they have observed in action in the courtroom. From there, each candidate undergoes a thorough investigation by an attorney-led team that verifies licensing, ensures the candidate is in good standing with the state licensing agency and makes sure there are no disciplinary issues that would disqualify the candidate from inclusion in the list. The research team also reviews each candidate's credentials, assigning specific point values based on established criteria. After tallying up the points from the general survey and investigation, candidates are ranked in order from highest to lowest point totals. The lawyers with the highest point totals are named to their states' Rising StarsSM list.

Heading the Securities Litigation and Arbitration Department for the nationally recognized firm Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP, he has handled cases in both State and Federal Courts as well as in various alternative dispute resolution forums.
