LAS VEGAS (June 11, 2014) Associate Attorney Joshua P. Gilmore of the law firm Bailey Kennedy has been named “Rising Star” in the 2014 Super Lawyers Mountain States listing.

A Thomson Reuters business, Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a rigorous, multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. Its Rising Stars program was founded in 1998 and recognizes the top up-and-coming lawyers who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
Gilmore practices primarily in the area of complex commercial litigation, including disputes involving breach of contract, fraud, antitrust and unfair competition, and business torts. His clients include restaurateurs, medical providers, transportation companies, property management companies, financial services companies, and business owners. He also represents clients in matters involving professional responsibility and legal ethics, including legal malpractice, discipline defense, and attorney disqualification.
Gilmore joined Bailey Kennedy as an Associate Attorney in the fall of 2009 after receiving his Juris Doctorate degree from the William S. Boyd School of Law in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he graduated summa cum laude and ranked second in his class.
