September 19, 2007, Manchester, NH— Thirty attorneys from the McLane Law Firm were recently selected from their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® list for 2008 (Copyright 2007 by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, S.C.).

The 2008 edition is the fourteenth edition of The Best lawyers in America®. Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as a definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Because Best Lawyers® is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which 24,000 leading attorneys throughout the country cast almost two million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, 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.”

Twelve McLane lawyers have made the list at least ten times in a row. Three have been named to the list at least twenty times.
