FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
126 Holland & Knight Lawyers Featured in Best Lawyers in America
BOSTON, October 26, 2004 – This year, 126 Holland & Knight LLP lawyers have been selected for The Best Lawyers in America 2005-2006 (Copyright 2004 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.), a publication widely regarded as the definitive legal referral guide in the United States. Five lawyers from the firm’s Boston office were included this year.
The selection process of Best Lawyers is conducted through a peer-review survey in which 16,000 leading attorneys cast more than half a million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties. This is a distinctive honor because lawyers must be nominated by their peers and no lawyer is listed in exchange for a payment of a fee.
The following Boston lawyers are being recognized this year. The notations of “10” and “20” indicate how many years that individual had been included:
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Gael Mahony (20)
David Scott Sloan
Trusts and Estates
