We're very gratified by these independent honors because they illustrate the depth of legal talent that our firm offers our clients on a daily basis
Burlington, Vt. (PRWEB) April 15, 2009
The law firm Burak Anderson & Melloni, PLC was recently named to the 2009 Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Pre-Eminent Lawyers, a designation awarded to fewer than 5% of all law firms in America. In addition, several attorneys from the Burlington, Vermont law firm have recently been honored for their legal credentials by respected national publications.
Michael L. Burak, an experienced commercial litigator and intellectual property attorney, was named by Super Lawyers magazine as a Super Lawyer in the state of Vermont. Only five percent of the lawyers in New England are named by Super Lawyers and the selections are made after a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by Super Lawyers staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check.
Separately, Jon T. Anderson, whose practice includes complex real estate projects, transactions and litigation, was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America in the field of environmental law.
Thomas R. Melloni, who heads up Burak Anderson & Melloni's Finance and Corporate Practices, was also selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America in the field of Banking Law. Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 32,000 leading attorneys cast more than 2.5 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties.
In addition to these prestigious recognitions, Anja Freiburg and Shane W. McCormack were named "Rising Stars" by Super Lawyers magazine. This designation is limited to no more than 2.5% of the attorneys in the state of Vermont.
"We're very gratified by these independent honors because they illustrate the depth of legal talent that our firm offers our clients on a daily basis," said Burak. "This depth has been recently strengthened by the return from a leave of absence of our friend and colleague Michael Rosenberg, an AV rated attorney who has more than 30 years of experience in antitrust, franchise termination and construction contract law."
Burak Anderson & Melloni, PLC is a business law firm that serves a broad spectrum of clients in matters relating to environmental law, zoning and land use planning, real estate development, banking and finance, corporate and business transactions, venture capital and securities laws, public finance, utility and energy law, anti-trust and trade regulation, construction law, and all aspects of commercial litigation.
