The Spring 2016 Business Edition of Best Lawyers names Beth Shapiro Kaufman, Patricia Gimbel Lewis, and Anne J. O'Brien among the top legal practitioners in their fields.  This year, the publication launched “Women in the Law,” a special edition which is “a go-to shortlist of exceptional women attorneys, vetted by their peers, inspiring their colleagues and students, and . . . exemplifying excellence in their practice.”
