Michael Best & Friedrich LLP Madison office associate Melissa M. Turczyn has been named an Up & Coming Lawyer of 2014 by the Wisconsin Law Journal. Each year the journal celebrates Wisconsin’s rising legal stars who have been practicing law for less than eight years but have already handled challenging legal issues, taken steps to improve the justice system, and have dedicated themselves to their communities. The honorees were chosen from industry-submitted nominations for their initiative in the legal field.
"Being recognized by the Wisconsin Law Journal and other professionals throughout the legal field for my work is truly an honor,” Turczyn said.
Turczyn is a member of the firm’s Transactional Group and is the Co-chair of Michael Best’s Venture Best Team. Her practice focuses on all aspects of corporate law, with an emphasis on venture capital.
Turczyn received her Juris Doctor from the University of Wisconsin Law School and her Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
