BU Law alumnus and Lane Powell shareholder Michael J. Parise was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2013 in the area of Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).
Parise concentrates his practice in commercial law, mergers and acquisitions, complex loan transactions, real estate, bankruptcy, loan restructuring, maritime vessel financing, business litigation, foreclosures, and litigation under the Uniform Commercial Code. He also represents parties in negotiations and litigation concerning oil and gas exploration financing, mining lease and royalty agreements, and timber sale and logging contracts.
The current edition of Best Lawyers (2013) is based on detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.  Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.  Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
