Fifty-Five Hodgson Russ Attorneys Ranked in 2021 Best Lawyers in America

Hodgson Russ Press Release
August 20, 2020

Hodgson Russ is pleased to announce that 55 attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2021 edition of “Best Lawyers in America” listings. Inclusion in Best Lawyers may be considered a singular honor because selection is based on an in-depth, peer-review survey in which attorneys cast votes on the legal abilities of lawyers outside of their firm who practice in the same legal and geographic areas.

Hodgson Russ is further pleased to announce that three of its attorneys have been honored as 2021 “Lawyers of the Year.” Attorneys receive this designation “based on their extremely high overall feedback within specific practice areas and metropolitan regions.” Mark S. Klein, Sujata Yalamanchili and Robert J. Olivieri have been recognized as “Lawyers of the Year” for the 2021 listing.
