Chip Bachara, managing partner of Bachara Construction Law Group, has once again been recognized by his peers as one of Florida’s most outstanding lawyers. Bachara was recently named one of Florida Trend’s Legal Elite™ for 2021.

The list of 1,263 honorees represents just over 1% of active Florida Bar members, including attorneys in private practice and top government and non-profit attorneys who practice in the state. Legal Elite attorneys are selected each year by their peers. All in-state members of The Florida Bar are invited to vote for lawyers whom they hold in high regard or would recommend to others.

“It’s quite an honor to be named to Florida’s Legal Elite,” said Bachara, “and I deeply appreciate this recognition from my peers.”

“Florida Trend’s Legal Elite program is an opportunity to celebrate Florida Bar members from a wide range of practice areas who have earned a high level of respect and esteem from their peers. The Florida Bar applauds those who were selected for this prestigious honor, which reflects their commitment to excellence and professionalism in the field of law,” notes The Florida Bar President Michael G. Tanner.

Now in its 18th year, the Florida Legal Elite, published in Florida Trend’s July issue, provides its 270,000 readers with a peer-reviewed resource listing of the best lawyers in the state, said the magazine’s publisher, David G. Denor. The entire Legal Elite roster may be viewed at
