BUFFALO, NY – Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP announced today that several of its attorneys have been honored in the 2016 edition of “Best Lawyers in America.” “Best Lawyers” compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.
The attorneys and their practice areas include:
- Brian J. Bocketti: Banking and Finance Law; Business Organizations (including LLC’s and partnerships), Commercial Finance Law; and Corporate Law.
- William E. Mathias II: Corporate Law
- Paul A. Mitchell: Corporate Law
- Helen Osgood: Real Estate Law
- Blaine S. Schwartz: Real Estate Law
- Paul F. Wells: Real Estate Law
- Alan S. Wexler: Real Estate Law
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which 24,000 leading attorneys throughout the country cast more than a half million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a signal honor.
“The accomplishments of our attorneys in obtaining such high profile recognition through ‘Best Lawyers’ reflect the standard of excellence Lippes Mathias represents in the legal community at large,” said Managing Partner Scott E. Friedman. “While it is always great to see our colleagues recognized, it is impossible for such lists to recognize everyone in a firm. I believe all of our attorneys are excellent practitioners and could easily qualify for this recognition. I am proud to be part of a firm with colleagues who are committed to serving the needs of our clients with the highest degree of expertise and integrity.”
