Best Lawyers began designating “Lawyers of the Year” in the U.S. in high-profile legal practice areas in conjunction with the 15th edition in 2009.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant.
Herbert L. Allen has been named the Best Lawyers’ 2013 Orlando Patent Law “Lawyer of the Year”
Ava K. Doppelt has been named the Best Lawyers’ 2013 Orlando Litigation – Intellectual Property “Lawyer of the Year.”
Brian R. Gilchrist has been named the Best Lawyers’ 2013 Orlando Litigation – Patent “Lawyer of the Year.”
David L. Sigalow has been named the Best Lawyers’ 2013 Orlando Copyright Law “Lawyer of the Year.”
Lawyers being honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
