Michael Best is pleased to announce that Vincent M. Morrone has been named a 2019 Up & Coming Lawyer by the Wisconsin Law Journal. The award recognizes attorneys having eight years or less of experience who have shown themselves to be rising stars based on their handling of challenging legal issues, efforts to improve the justice system, and positive impact on their communities.
As a senior associate in the firm’s Corporate Practice Group, Morrone represents clients involved in sophisticated transactions, including commercial lending; business planning and formation; and mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
Serving the community has always been a key priority of Morrone’s, and he does so through his pro bono work Marquette Legal Initiative for Nonprofits. Additionally, Morrone plays a significant role in mentoring other Michael Best attorneys and summer associates. Outside of the practice of law, Morrone volunteers his time and talents as a youth sports coach.
Morrone received his J.D., cum laude, from Marquette University Law School and his B.A., magna cum laude, from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
Morrone, along with the other 2019 recipients, will be honored at a Wisconsin Law Journal event at Discovery World in downtown Milwaukee on September 18, 2019.
