MIAMI, FL – July 6, 2017 – Bast Amron LLP is pleased to announce that three of its attorneys have been listed in Florida Trend Magazine’s Florida Legal Elite 2017. Partners Jeffrey P. Bast and Scott N. Brown are listed in the Bankruptcy and Workout category. Brett M. Amron is listed in the Commercial Litigation category.
“Now in its 14th year, Florida Legal Elite presents a prestigious roster of attorneys chosen for recognition by their peers. The 1,080 lawyers listed exemplify a standard of excellence in their profession and by so doing, have garnered the respect and esteem of their colleagues.”
Florida Trend Magazine sent ballots to lawyers and were asked to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. Voters were also asked to name three “up and coming” attorneys, and in a separate category, outstanding attorneys working in the government and non-profit sectors. Only lawyers who are currently licensed and practicing in Florida were eligible for selection.
The ballots were processed and each lawyer was given a score based on the number of votes he or she received, with more weight given to votes from outside the firm. Only lawyers who are currently licensed and practicing in Florida were eligible for selection. The list of top vote-getters was further examined using membership status and histories provided by The Florida Bar. A panel of previous Legal Elite winners, representing different practice areas in cities across the state, reviewed the selection process and the list of finalists.
The resulting lists represent fewer than 2% of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.
