Hirschler is pleased to announce that 37 of its attorneys have been included among Best Lawyers in America for 2022, with six attorneys recognized as “Lawyer of the Year” for their respective practice areas and eight attorneys named “Ones to Watch.” Hirschler adds 10 attorneys to the list over the previous edition. As one of the oldest and most distinguished legal directories, Best Lawyers conducts peer-review surveys to compile its annual list of top attorneys across various practice areas. The 2022 edition of the publication is available today at www.bestlawyers.com.

Selected as “Lawyer of the Year” in Richmond for their practice areas are Charles H. Rothenberg for Land Use and Zoning Law, James L. Weinberg for Mergers and Acquisition Law, N. Pendleton (Penn) Rogers for Tax Law, Robert S. Westermann for Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law, and S. Brian Farmer for Securities / Capital Markets Law. From Hirschler’s Tysons office, Robert R. Vieth is named for Litigation – Real Estate. The “Lawyer of the Year” recognitions are awarded to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer feedback for a specific practice area in a certain geographic location. Only a single lawyer in each specialty and designated location is named as a “Lawyer of the Year.”

Hirschler significantly added to its “Ones to Watch” ranks in the 2022 guide with eight lawyers named, up from three in 2021. Included this year are: In Richmond, Kelly J.
