(September 5, 2007. Manchester, NH.) - Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green attorney Jim Shirley has again been included in The Best Lawyers in America by Woodward/White, a national research firm. Shirley is one of 22 SPB+G attorneys to be honored this year and was named to the list for his work in commercial litigation.
Shirley has tried cases in state and federal court in New Hampshire, as well as in neighboring jurisdictions, for over 30 years. Over time, he has increasingly focused on matters involving commercial disputes, professional negligence, product liability, toxic torts, real estate and insurance coverage. He earned his B.A. from Dartmouth College, his M.A. from San Francisco State University, and his J.D. from the University of San Francisco School of Law.
Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
