Every year Buffalo Business First announces the top attorneys in Buffalo, NY as chosen by their peers. Every year we are incredibly proud to see some of our attorneys named to the list. This list is a great honor as it is a award given in part by other peers.
To be selected, an honoree had to be a partner or of counsel in a law firm, an in-house counsel for a company, a public officeholder in the field of legal affairs, a leader of a bar association or related group, or an educator in the field.
Selections were based on internal and external nominations submitted by local attorneys. Two points were awarded for each external nomination (a candidate from outside of the nominator’s firm) and one for an internal nomination (a member of the nominator’s firm).
No more than 15% of the attorneys at a particular firm could be chosen for the Legal Elite.
This year we had five attorneys selected for the Legal Elite List. Congratulations to our five Legal Elite, David Pfalzgraf Jr. Tony Rupp, Jeff Baase, Marco Cercone and Jamie Batt. Rupp Baase Pfalzgraf Cunningham is so proud of each of you for being the elite in your field.
