According to The Recorder: 

“Recorder editors reviewed nearly 200 nominations for its fourth annual contest and is recognizing 20 for work on 16 matters. We considered only California lawyers litigating cases in California courts or handling deals for California-based clients.  Our winners did battle in courtrooms in high-stakes, high-stress matters, making new law and going up against formidable opponents. For many of the honorees, one blockbuster matter was hardly the only thing on their plates. They juggled a number of challenging matters at once, testing their skills in new ways.

Gay Grunfeld of Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld took a leading role in two public interest cases, winning a significant victory for California prisoners with disabilities and securing a settlement that has reformed the city of Compton’s electoral system.”
