Peterson Named ‘Best Lawyer’

Gregory L. Peterson, office leader of Phillips Lytle LLP’s Jamestown office, has been named to The Best Lawyers in America 2014 list.

Peterson was cited for his work in real estate law.

Overall, 58 Phillips Lytle attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion in this prestigious annual list, which was compiled and published by Woodward/White Inc. of Aiken, S.C.

“It is a tremendous honor to once again be included on this highly respected list. We are proud to be recognized across so many of our practice areas and office locations again this year. Inclusion on this list speaks to the quality of our work and the depth of our expertise,” said David J. McNamara, managing partner, Phillips Lytle LLP.

In addition to Peterson, The Best Lawyers in America 2014 also cited 46 attorneys from the firm’s Buffalo office, nine from its Rochester office and one each from its Albany and New York City offices.

Inclusion in the Best Lawyers in America list is based entirely on peer review. The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area. Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. The publication’s belief is the quality of a peer-review survey is directly related to the quality of its voting pool.
