Liesemer, Kevin C. Maclay, and James P. Wehner who are regularly referenced by clients and peers as litigators who are likely to become "local litigation stars" in future editions of the guide. 

Mr. Swett remarked, "Our team is comprised of highly-skilled trial and bankruptcy lawyers who handle business, financial, and commercial disputes.  To be acknowledged by our clients and peers as leaders In our field is, of course, extremely gratifying, and illustrates our ongoing commitment to offering our clients superior representation."
