MIAMI, FL– June 23, 2020- Bast Amron is pleased to announce that Jeffrey P. Bast, Hayley G. Harrison, and Peter J. Klock were recently recognized by their peers in the 2020 Edition of Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite™ and Legal Elite Up & Comers.
Less than 2% of active Florida Bar members practicing in Florida appear among the exclusive Florida Legal Elite. Now in its 17th year, Florida Legal Elite presents the state’s top licensed and practicing attorneys selected by their peers.
To compile the list, Florida Trend invited all in-state members of the Florida Bar to name attorneys whom they highly regard or would recommend to others. Voters were also asked to name three “up and coming” attorneys, and outstanding attorneys working in the government and non-profit sectors.
An outside vendor tabulated all ballots, and attorneys were scored based on the number of votes they received, with more weight applied to votes from outside their own firms.
Florida’s Legal Leaders
Jeffrey Bast • Bankruptcy & Workout
Legal Elite Up & Comers
Hayley Gerson Harrison • Bankruptcy & Workout
Peter Joseph Klock II • Commercial Litigation
These 112 Legal Elite Up & Comers are attorneys that garnered the most votes in a special category for attorneys under the age of 40 who have exhibited leadership in the law and in their community.
