PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) May 23, 2014
The law firm of Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry is pleased to announce that attorneys Stewart M. Weintraub and Elizabeth S. Fenton have been named 2014 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers by Thomson Reuters. It is the 11th year that Weintraub, who chairs the firm’s state and local tax practice group, has been named a Super Lawyer, an honor achieved by only the top 5 percent Pennsylvania’s 50,000 lawyers.
“After his ten previous appearances on the Super Lawyers list, one might expect that we've become used to Stewart setting such a high bar,” said Managing Shareholder Wayne A. Risoli. “Now we congratulate Beth on her Super Lawyer rating. Our experienced and talented attorneys are part of what makes coming to work at Chamberlain Hrdlicka every day so extraordinary. It never becomes routine.”
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The multi-phased selection process includes peer nominations, independent research, and peer evaluations.
An experienced business attorney, Fenton litigates, arbitrates and tries cases involving business torts, joint venture dissolutions, and corporate governance disputes. Based on her experience litigating the boundaries of corporate and LLC limited liability, she publishes and speaks regularly on piercing the corporate veil and the doctrine’s interplay with the fiduciary duties of officers, directors and members. Fenton joined Chamberlain Hrdlicka as a shareholder in 2013 and currently chairs the Business Torts and Unfair Competition Committee of the American Bar Association Section of Litigation.
Since being admitted to the Pennsylvania bar in 1971, Weintraub has focused his practice upon state and local taxation. From audits through trials and appeals to the appellate courts, Weintraub represents clients in all aspects of state and local tax compliance and litigation. His practice also includes helping clients plan and structure transactions so that all state and local tax obligations are minimized.
