Four Stichter Riedel shareholders were recognized as the top lawyers in Tampa Bay by Tampa Magazine in its June 2017 publication. Each year, Tampa Magazine surveys active Florida attorneys practicing in Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties and asks for peer nominations in 74 different practice areas. Tampa Bay attorneys chose four of Stichter Riedel’s shareholders as Top Lawyers. Charles A. Postler, the head of the firm’s corporate and transactional practice, was named the top Tampa Bay lawyer in the following four areas: corporate law, corporate governance law, mergers & acquisitions law, and closely held companies & family business law. In the firm’s core insolvency practice, Edward J. Peterson was voted number one in bankruptcy litigation. Barbara Hart, who leads the firm’s state court litigation practice, was listed as the top lawyer in banking and finance litigation. Michael Bachman was listed as the top real estate lawyer.
