Adams and Reese had nine attorneys across the firm’s regional footprint selected among the “Lawyers of the Year” for 2015 in their respective practice areas by Best Lawyers® (by BL Rankings, LLC), the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. Best Lawyers® designates “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”

Adams and Reese attorneys named “Lawyers of the Year” in their respective cities and practice areas include:

  • Kevin Hayes – Government Relations, Baton Rouge
  • Charles Parrott – Banking and Finance, Jackson
  • Chuck Adams – Litigation Securities, Jackson
  • John Chambers – Litigation Construction, Nashville
  • Lucian Pera – Health Care, Memphis
  • Ray Cornelius – Administrative/Regulatory Law, New Orleans
  • Phil Bergeron – Health Care, New Orleans
  • Tara Nauful – Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization, Charleston
  • Vic Lott – Mergers and Acquisitions, Mobile

A total of 120 Adams and Reese attorneys were named to the 2015 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® (by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners), all selected and voted on by their peers and the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.

Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
