For a 4th year in a row, our Managing Partner and Founder, William Scherer, was recognized by Best Lawyers, for Commercial Litigation. Our Senior Partner, Irwin Gilbert, was recognized for his first time this year for Commercial Litigation. Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation.
Additionally, the following attorneys were recognized to the inaugural Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch. Russell O’Brien was recognized for Commercial Litigation, Michael Dutko, Jr. was recognized for Commercial Litigation and Government Relations, Farheen Jahangir was recognized for Commercial Litigation and Banking and Finance Litigation, Jimmy Mintz was recognized for Commercial Litigation, Sylvie Rampal was recognized for Government Relations and Kyle Roberts was recognized for Insurance Law.
These awards are recognitions given to attorneys who are earlier in their careers for outstanding professional excellence in private practice in the United States. The “Ones to Watch” recipients typically have been in practice for 5-9 years. Recognition is based entirely on peer review and employs the same methodology that has made Best Lawyers the gold standard for legal rankings worldwide.
