Super Lawyers Magazine Recognizes SRBP Lawyers in Top Lists and as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars – July 2021

Highlighting the deep, “top-to-bottom” strength of Stichter Riedel’s business bankruptcy practice, Super Lawyers Magazine’s 2021 rankings include all of its active shareholders as Super Lawyers and two of its younger lawyers as Rising Stars. Stichter Riedel is the only Florida firm with fifteen lawyers to be so honored. 

Equally notable, the “Top Lawyer Lists” reflect the firm’s outstanding reputation and its ability to deliver results for its clients.  Co-managing shareholders, Harley E. Riedel and Scott A. Stichter, together with Russell M. Blain and Edward J. Peterson, are rated within the Top 100 lawyers of the 70,000+ active lawyers in the State of Florida.  They also rank among the Top 50 lawyers in Tampa across all practice areas.  No other firm in Florida had more than three lawyers listed among the Top 100 in the State and no other firm in Tampa had more than three lawyers listed.  

Finally, Harley E. Riedel, is listed as the top lawyer in the State of Florida for the second year in a row and for the third time overall.  This also marks the twelfth consecutive year Mr. Riedel has been recognized as one of the top 10 lawyers in the State of Florida. 

Super Lawyers' goal is to create and provide an exceptional and credible resource for both attorneys and consumers. Candidates for Super Lawyers’ honors are nominated from more than 70 practice areas and are run annually on a state-by-state basis.

Super Lawyers begins the process by taking nominations and then polling members of The Florida Bar.  Lawyers cannot nominate or vote for themselves. It then does independent research, looking at lawyers' honors and awards, experience, representative clients, transactions, verdicts and settlements, position in the law firm, bar and/or professional activity, pro bono and community services, scholarly lectures and writings, education and employment background, and other achievements that do not fall under those categories.

After evaluation by a Blue Ribbon Panel–composed of candidates with the highest scoring from the independent research–the final selection is made in regards to small, medium and large firms.  See link.

As noted in other news releases, these extraordinarily high Super Lawyers rankings are consistent with other independent peer-review ratings services such as Martindale, Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA Best Business Lawyers, and Florida Legal Elite.
