PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) August 20, 2020
Pennsylvania labor, employment and workers’ compensation law firm Willig, Williams & Davidson is proud to announce that 15 of its attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2021 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, one of the legal profession’s oldest and most respected peer-review publications. The selected attorneys were drawn from the firm’s Philadelphia and Harrisburg offices and were recognized for their work in the practice areas of employment law - individuals, labor law – union, labor and employment litigation, and employee benefits (ERISA) law.
In addition, partner Nancy B. G. Lassen was named 2021 “Lawyer of the Year” in Philadelphia for labor law on behalf of unions. This honor is awarded to the individual lawyer with the highest overall voter feedback from their peers in their specific practice area and geographic region. Only one lawyer is selected as Lawyer of the Year for each practice area and location.
The 2021 Best Lawyers include Deborah R. Willig, Alaine S. Williams, Stuart W. Davidson, Nancy B. G. Lassen, Ralph J. Teti, Deborah M. Lerner, Linda M. Martin, Irwin W. Aronson, James S. Beall, Susan Bahme Blumenfeld, Laurence M. Goodman, Ryan A. Hancock, Bruce M. Ludwig, Amy L. Rosenberger, and Richard G. Poulson. Many have been named among Best Lawyers for 10 years or more.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become highly regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Since Best Lawyers is based on detailed peer-review surveys, in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys vote on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and since lawyers are neither required nor allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
