PITTSBURGH – August 15, 2017 – Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney is proud to announce that 128 of the firm’s attorneys are listed in The Best Lawyers in America 2018. Of those, 18 attorneys are named to the list for the first time this year and 10 are named “Lawyer of the Year” in their respective practice and metropolitan area.
