Law360 has named partner Nicole Johnson to its annual Rising Star list, noting her talent in the area of tax law. The list recognizes the achievements of lawyers under 40 whose “legal accomplishments transcend their age.”
Nicole, in addition to confidential representations and along with other members of the firm’s SALT Group, represented Kohl’s Department Stores and Daimler Investments US Corp on significant tax matters in the past year. While her client work contributed to her Rising Star recognition, so did her community engagement and commitment to diversity. Spearheading the State + Local Tax Group’s annual marquee client event, Nicole has been invaluable in building the firm’s presence in this area of law.
In 2019, she has also organized Morrison & Foerster’s first-ever Women’s Tax Summit in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The event focused on growing a community of empowered women in the tax profession, and attracted dozens of participants in a state where the firm does not have an office.
The publication received over 1,300 nominations this year to arrive at its list of 175 legal stars.
