Bachara Named Construction Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers

Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 5, 2011 – Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Chip Bachara as 2012 “Construction Lawyer of the Year” for Jacksonville.

“I’m surprised and pleased by this honor,” Bachara said, “especially since it is based on the evaluation of my peers. It means a lot to be recognized by respected friends and colleagues.”

After 25 years in publication, Best Lawyers this year began designating Lawyers of the Year in large legal communities, recognizing a single lawyer in each of the major specialties in each community. The publication’s lists of outstanding attorneys are based on the results of thousands of exhaustive, confidential peer-review surveys with leading lawyers.

Lawyers of the Year received particularly high ratings in those surveys for their ability, professionalism, and integrity.

The Best Lawyers recognition is not the first for Bachara, founding partner of Bachara Construction Law Group. Earlier this year, he was named one of Florida Trend’s 2011 Legal Elite for Construction Law, his second consecutive year of recognition. He was also named a Florida Super Lawyer by Law and Politics Publishing, a designation he has earned for five consecutive years.
