The firm is pleased to announce that 24 lawyers have been included in the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Best Lawyers was founded in 1981 with the purpose of highlighting the extraordinary accomplishments of those in the legal profession. Lawyers on The Best Lawyers in America list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.

In addition, Buchalter Shareholder James K. Dyer was recognized as the 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” for Corporate Law in the Sacramento area.
