Eight Goldberg Segalla attorneys in Buffalo were selected for inclusion in the 2015 Legal Elite of Western New York, a peer-reviewed list published by the Buffalo Law Journal and Business First of the region’s most respected attorneys.
The 2015 edition marks the second time in as many years that partner Joseph M. Hanna, Chair of Goldberg Segalla’s Sports and Entertainment Practice Group and the firm’s Diversity Task Force earned a spot in the Legal Elite’s Top 10: Best of the Best, which singles out those who received the most nominations from the legal community. One peer nominator told the Law Journal that Joe has a reputation as “one of the best litigators and sports attorneys in the U.S.,” and that he is “one of the most well-spoken, wisest and pragmatic attorneys I have ever dealt with.”
Also for the second year running, Goldberg Segalla Managing Partner Richard J. Cohen was honored in the Legal Elite Leaders section, which highlights those at the helm of the area’s 10 largest law firms and other legal organizations.
In all, fifteen percent of the firm’s Buffalo office again made the list this year, the maximum allowed for any firm, and is reflective of Goldberg Segalla’s prominent Business and Commercial, Global Insurance Services, General Liability, Employment and Labor, Workers’ Compensation, and Sports and Entertainment Practice Groups, among others. They are listed below:
- Julie P. Apter
- Christopher J. Belter
- Richard J. Cohen
- Christopher G. Floreale
- Neil A. Goldberg
- Damon M. Gruber
- Joseph M. Hanna
- Thomas F. Segalla
Firmwide, Goldberg Segalla attorneys feature prominently in major regional, national, and international legal directories, including The Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, Chambers USA and Chambers UK, and others.
