Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Arthur E. Pape as the "Chicago Best Lawyers Real Estate Lawyer of the Year" for 2012.
After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating "Lawyers of the Year" in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the "Lawyer of the Year."
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 18th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2012) is based on more than 3.9 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
The lawyers being honored as "Lawyers of the Year" have received particularly high ratings in our surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, says, "We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one's peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Arthur E. Pape on being selected as the 'Chicago Best Lawyers Real Estate Law Lawyer of the Year' for 2012."
In 2010, The Pape Law Firm was honored to be selected Small Real Estate Law Firm of the Year – North America by London-based InterContinental Finance Magazine. According to the magazine, The Pape Law Firm "performed to exceptional levels during one of the most difficult economic periods ever experienced."
Arthur E. Pape, principal attorney of The Pape Law Firm, said "I had no idea we were being considered for these honors, and they come as a complete surprise. It's nice for a small suburban firm to be recognized in this way. This validates our business plan of doing first class work at rates more than 50% lower than the big firms must charge. I like to work with clients on deals rather than oversee other lawyers. Thanks to all our clients who made this possible, and welcome to any who become clients in the future."
