2017 Best Lawyers Names Fifty-four Hodgson Russ Attorneys From Multiple Offices

News Release
August 18, 2016

Fifty-two Hodgson Russ attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2017.  In addition, two Hodgson Russ attorneys were listed in The Best Lawyers in Canada 2017.  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 three of its attorneys have been honored as 2017 “Lawyers of the Year” in Buffalo: Joseph L. Braccio, Labor Law - Management, Kenneth P. Friedman for Mergers and Acquisitions Law, and Peter C. Godfrey, Employment Law – Management.
