Bruce Gagnon Named “Lawyer of the Year”

Atkinson, Conway & Gagnon is pleased to announce that Bruce E. Gagnon has been named as the “Anchorage Best Lawyers Bet-the-Company Litigator of the Year” for 2011.

The honor was conferred by The Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”

The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011) is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, issued the following statement about Mr. Gagnon’s honor: “We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Bruce E. Gagnon on being selected as the ‘Anchorage Best Lawyers Bet-the-Company Litigator of the Year’ for 2011.”
