Super Lawyers magazine, an affiliate of Thomson Reuters, named BLB&G partners Max Berger, John Browne, Salvatore Graziano, James Harrod, Mark Lebovitch, Jerry Silk, Jeroen van Kwawegen, and David Wales to its annual New York Super Lawyers 2015 – Metro Edition list. Partners John Rizio-Hamilton and Katherine Sinderson, senior counsel Adam Wierzbowski, and associates Abe Alexander, Michael Blatchley, Rebecca Boon, Scott Foglietta, Kristin Meister, Christopher Orrico and Edward Timlin were all named “Rising Stars.”
Representing only 5% of the licensed active attorneys in the New York Metro region, the list is a compilation of "outstanding lawyers...who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement," as determined by a multiphase process consisting of independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. No more than 2.5% of the lawyers are named to Rising Stars.
