|(April 30, 2010, Manchester, NH) - The law firm of Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green PA is proud to announce the firm has been chosen as Business NH Magazine's Business of the Decade. The firm was selected based on business success, contributions and leadership within the legal profession, community and state during the past 10 years. Sheehan Phinney was named Business of the Year in 2007 which fulfilled the eligibility requirement for submission of an application for Business of the Decade.
Business NH Magazine, in partnership with the NH Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, has been honoring exemplary businesses since 1991. The first Business of the Decade award was given in 2000. Applicants went through two rounds of judging. In the first, panels of industry experts whittled each category to three semi-finalists. Then, a Panel of Excellence made up of Business of the Decade winners from the 2000 competition and statewide business leaders selected the final winners. Matt Mowry Business NH Magazine's Editor noted " The Business of the Decade recipients serve as a reminder that no matter what is going on in the economy, there are businesses and leaders in NH who strive for and achieve excellence, and who make giving back to their communities a priority."
Joseph A. DiBrigida, Jr., President and Managing Director of Sheehan Phinney commented, "We are honored to have been chosen as a Business of the Decade. We owe our success to the firm's business philosophy established by Bill Green, one of our founders. His influence and example of putting others first has shaped the way we at Sheehan Phinney serve our clients, the way we treat each other, and the way we contribute to our communities and the State of NH." He added, "We strive to treat everyone with respect; we value diligence and hard work; we believe we have a duty to give back to the communities we serve."
All award recipients will be honored at the Business of the Decade Awards Gala on May 12, 2010 at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, NH. Sheehan Phinney shareholder Kimon S.
