Sirote & Permutt Announces 47 Attorneys Selected as The Best Lawyers in America© for 2016

August 17, 2015

Sirote & Permutt is pleased to announce that 47 of its attorneys were selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© for 2016. The annual directory recognizes those who most excel in the legal profession based upon evaluations by colleagues and other legal professionals.

Lenora Pate was doubly awarded in the Health Care category, recognized among The Best Lawyers in America, but also specifically chosen as 2016 Health Care Law “Lawyer of the Year” for Birmingham. According to Best Lawyers, “Only a single lawyer in each practice area in each community is being honored as a ‘Lawyer of the Year.’”

Brad Sklar was similarly recognized both in the inaugural Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships) national category and as the Birmingham “Lawyer of the Year” in that same practice area.

“The categories in which we were recognized attest to our identity as a firm with deep and varied core competencies,” said W. Todd Carlisle, Managing Partner of Sirote & Permutt. “Further, Lenora and Brad have earned individual awards in a competitive local market, which reflect Sirote’s ongoing commitment to mastery of particular practice areas.”
