Press Release
August 17, 2015

attorneys gathered at conference tableFifty-five Hodgson Russ attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2016. Because Best Lawyers is based on an in-depth peer-review survey in which attorneys cast votes on the legal abilities of lawyers outside their firm who practice in the same legal and geographic areas, inclusion in Best Lawyers may be considered a singular honor.

Hodgson Russ is also pleased to announce that five of its attorneys have been honored as 2016 “Lawyers of the Year” in Buffalo: Terrence Gilbride for Real Estate Law, Alice Joseffer for Tax Law, Daniel Joyce for Immigration Law, Arthur Marrapese for Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law, and Benjamin Zuffranieri for Bet-the-Company Litigation.
