Firm Achieves Top Insolvency Ranking as Eight Shareholders Named to Florida ''Legal Elite'' Or ''Up & Comers'' Lists By Florida Trend Magazine - July 2016

Six shareholders, Harley E. Riedel, Russell M. Blain, Charlie A. Postler, Stephen R. Leslie, Barbara A. Hart, and Edward J. Peterson were named to Florida Trend Magazine's 2016 list of "Florida Legal Elite." No other Florida firm had more than three listed lawyers in the “Legal Elite” category in the area of “Bankruptcy and Workout Law.” Shareholders Amy Denton Harris and Daniel R. Fogarty were named in the “Up & Comers” category recognizing lawyers under 40 years of age.  In its Legal Elite list, Florida Trend Magazine recognizes less than 2% of all Florida Bar Members, based in large part upon the votes of attorneys and judges. Only 148 Florida lawyers in the under-40 category were recognized as “Up & Comers.” For each of the past seven years (2010 through 2016) the firm has been ranked as first or tied for first in the number of Florida lawyers named in the “Bankruptcy and Workout” practice area.
