Gregory L. Peterson of Jamestown has been named to The Best Lawyers in America 2015 list.
Peterson was cited for his work in real estate law.
Overall, 58 Phillips Lytle attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion on this prestigious annual list, which was compiled and published by Woodward/White Inc., Aiken, S.C.
In addition to Peterson, The Best Lawyers in America 2015 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.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers is based on a peer-review survey in which almost 52,000 leading attorneys cast more than 5.5 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. 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.
