Best Lawyers® releases Sixth Edition of top attorneys in New Zealand


UNITED STATES - May 19, 2014 - Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected guide to the legal profession, announced the Sixth Edition of The Best Lawyers in New Zealand on May 19, 2014.

Attorneys named to The Best Lawyers in New Zealand were recognized by their peers in the legal industry for their professional excellence in 58 practice areas. In addition, one “Lawyer of the Year” was named in several areas.

Best Lawyers is the most reliable reference for quality legal representation,” said CEO Steven Naifeh. “Inclusion on this list indicates that an attorney is valued by his or her peers for professional success.”

The process begins when attorneys are nominated for the honor. They are divided by geographic region and practice areas, and are evaluated by their peers on the basis of professional expertise. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo an authentication process to make sure they are currently practicing and in good standing. Only then can these top attorneys be included.

Best Lawyers is devoted to recognizing excellence,” Naifeh said. “We're proud to acknowledge the accomplishments of these exceptional legal professionals.”
