Best Lawyers®, recognized as the oldest and most respected guide to the legal profession, has released the inaugural edition of a new publication, The Injury and Malpractice Issue.
The Injury and Malpractice Issue features attorneys “recognized for their top legal talent in injury and malpractice-related practice areas” in the 2021 editions of The Best Lawyers in America and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch.
The editor of The Injury and Malpractice Issue stated, “For the first time, Best Lawyers offers a consolidated guide geared to empower everyday people with the knowledge to make informed decisions and the resources to find the best legal representation when they need it.”
Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria earned the designation of “Top-Listed” by The Best Lawyers in America for three areas of practice: Medical Malpractice Law-Plaintiffs; Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs; and Product Liability Litigation-Plaintiffs. The “Top-Listed” distinction signifies that no other firm in Buffalo, NY has more attorneys listed in The Best Lawyers in America for each of those particular practice areas.
A New York State Supreme Court judge recently ruled in favor of a vaping industry group in their lawsuit against New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo.
This past September, Gov. Cuomo’s administration issued an emergency ban on flavored e-cigarettes in an attempt to address teen vaping and the increasing instances of vaping related illnesses. However, a judge ruled that Gov. Cuomo exceeded his authority by issuing the ban and that such an action should be passed by the legislature.
