Abigail Watts-FitzGerald and John W. Devine were selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2015 edition. Abigail has been recognized in the field of Mergers & Acquisitions Law in every edition since 2007, while John W. Devine was awarded in Real Estate Law.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey. Over 52,000 leading attorneys cast more than 5.5 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore 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.”
