AZA Attorneys, Firm Earn Numerous Honors in 2010
September 20, 2010
HOUSTON – The attorneys at AZA continue to add to their growing list of accolades with recent recognition from The Best Lawyers in America, U.S. News & World Report and Texas Super Lawyers magazine.
Earlier this month, the firm was singled out as one of the top law firms in Houston following a national survey conducted by the editors of U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America. The first ever Best Law Firms survey highlights the leaders in a wide variety of practice areas across 171 metropolitan areas.
The Best Law Firms recognition is just the latest honor for AZA, which also was one of only 32 firms in the U.S. singled out as “awesome opponents” in a survey of 240 different corporate counsel conducted by BTI Consulting.
Along with the firm-wide recognition, several AZA attorneys have earned individual honors based on nominations from competing lawyers. Name partners Joe Ahmad, John Zavitsanos and Demetrios Anaipakos recently earned spots in the 2011 edition of The Best Lawyers in America , marking the seventh consecutive year all three have been highlighted on the listing of the country’s top attorneys.
The three name partners, along with attorney Amir Alavi also are featured in the 2010 Texas Super Lawyers listing of the state’s best lawyers, with Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Zavitsanos both earning special distinction among the Top 100 attorneys in Houston. All four also have earned AV® Preeminent™ or BV® Distinguished™ Peer Review Ratings from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rankings available.
AZA is a Houston-based law firm with an accomplished track record representing plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation matters. The firm’s seasoned attorneys provide clients with extensive expertise in internal corporate investigations, non-compete covenants and trade secret claims, employment litigation, oil & gas and energy law, products liability and catastrophic personal injuries, and real estate and construction litigation. AZA has earned national recognition as an “awesome opponent” based on a survey of general counsel who were asked what firms they hope their companies never have to face in court.
