Shatz, Schwartz and Fentin Named to ‘Best Law Firms’ 2015
SPRINGFIELD — Local law firm Shatz, Schwartz and Fentin, P.C., serving Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York, has received a Tier 1 ranking in the 2015 edition of U.S. News/Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms.”
The firm has been recognized with Tier 1 metropolitan designations for Springfield in the practice areas of corporate law, real-estate law, and trust and estate law. Additionally, the firm has been recognized with Tier 2 metropolitan designations for Springfield in the practice areas of bankruptcy and creditor-debtor rights, insolvency and reorganization law, and tax law.
The U.S. News/Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in each field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. As firms are often separated by small differences in overall score, a tiering system is used rather than ranking law firms sequentially. To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area and metropolitan region, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in The Best Lawyers in America 2015 in that particular practice area and metropolitan area.
“We are thrilled with our top-tier inclusion in this year’s Best Law Firms report,” said founding Partner Steven Schwartz, who has been with the firm since its inception 45 years ago. “Additionally, eight of our attorneys were named to the Best Lawyers in America 2015 list this year, demonstrating the significant individual achievements at the firm.”
