Sixteen Shareholders Named to Best Lawyers in America

, MN – August 6, 2009. Sixteen lawyers from Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2010 edition of Best Lawyers in America® (Copyright 2009 by Woodward/White, Inc., Aiken, SC). Jeffrey R. Ansel, Thomas H. Boyd, Tammera R. Diehm, Edward J. Drenttel, Lloyd W. Grooms, Thomas M. Hart, Richard A. Hoel, Jon J. Hoganson, Geoffrey P. Jarpe, John A. Knapp, Hart Kuller, David P. Pearson, Eric F. Swanson, Thomas A. Walker, Patrick W. Weber and Robert R. Weinstine were selected for this honor. Selection is based on a peer-review survey in which leading attorneys from across the country cast nearly three million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their same and related specialties. 
First published in 1983, Best Lawyers is not only the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, but it also reaches the largest and most targeted audience. In the print media, the list appears in more than 60 major metropolitan magazines, business journals, and newspapers worldwide, reaching more than 16 million individuals. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed in the print or online directory, which is the basis for a number of “best lawyers” features in regional newspapers and magazines across the country. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Winthrop & Weinstine ranks number one in Minnesota and Minneapolis in Administrative Law, Banking Law, Bankruptcy and Creditor-Debtor Rights Law, Government Relations, and Municipal Law based on the number of attorneys listed.
