Boston, MA and Providence, RI - June 29, 2012
Burns & Levinson LLP is proud to announce that 16 of the firm’s attorneys have been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2012 (Copyright 2011 by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, S.C.), the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. The 2012 Best Lawyers® list appeared in the Boston Globe and Wall Street Journal on June 29, 2012.
We congratulate attorneys Victor Bass, Brian D. Bixby, Thomas D. Burns, Laura L. Carroll, Sean O. Coffey, Jerry Cohen, Lisa M. Cukier, Jacob (Jesse) N. Erlich, George P. Field, Dennis J. Kelly, David P. Rosenblatt, Paul M. Sanford, Mark Schonfeld, Laura R. Studen, George N. Tobia, Jr. and Peter F. Zupcofska for this accomplishment. Mr. Burns (25 years), Mr. Coffey (10 years) and Mr. Rosenblatt (10 years) are part of a distinguished group who have been listed in Best Lawyers® for ten years or longer. Many of our attorneys were also selected in more than one field.
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, 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.”
