David Raybin Deemed Best of the Bar by Nashville Business Journal
We are proud to announce that the Nashville Business Journal has acknowledged our partner, David Raybin, in their 2016 Best of the Bar list for his achievements in “Litigation and Dispute.” Congratulations, David!
Each year, Nashville Business Journal recognizes Middle Tennessee’s leading lawyers and corporate counselors in their Best of the Bar list.
Earlier this year, followers and subscribers of Nashville Business Journal nominated the men and women whom they considered to be the top legal minds in the area. This year, NBJ began basing categories on areas of practice and not firm size. Additionally, they updated their voting process to give more weight to votes outside of a nominee’s own firm. After the nominations were collected in early March, nominated lawyers voted for their fellow nominees. The lawyers and counselors with the most votes were named on the 2016 Best of the Bar winner list.
The attorneys who made the Best of the Bar list will be celebrated at a cocktail reception on June 2nd. Congratulations to all the attorneys!
