HKQ Gains National Recognition For Banking and Finance Practice

   The Best Lawyers in America, the nation’s oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, and U.S. News & World Report have named Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn to its list of “Best Law Firms” in America for banking and finance law. HKQ is ranked in the listing as a “Tier 1” banking and finance law firm for Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley, representing the highest ranking a firm can receive in their metropolitan area/practice area.
   “We are gratified and honored by the recognition from Best Lawyers and U.S. News & World Report,” said Attorney Joseph E. Kluger, managing principal in the firm’s commercial practice. “It confirms what we have known all along – that our team of lawyers works exceptionally hard to deliver great results for our clients.”
   In addition to Kluger, HKQ’s banking and finance team includes Attorneys Allan M. Kluger, James T. Shoemaker, Richard M. Williams, Terrence J. Herron, Richard S. Bishop, Brian P. Stahl and Lars H. Anderson.
   The firm represents banks, lending institutions and industrial development authorities, as well as private individuals and investors in all areas of banking, commercial transactions, debt and equity financing, and restructuring. HKQ provides a
full range of legal services for banking and finance clients from preparing real estate, asset-based and other types of loan documentation to assisting with workouts, foreclosures, collections, bankruptcies, liquidations and recoveries, to defending lender liability actions and representing lenders in litigation matters.
   “The experience of our team and the wide range of services we offer are second to none in Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley,” said Attorney James T. Shoemaker, principal in the firm’s banking and finance practice. “We offer great value and service to our clients.”
  Tier 1 includes only those firms with the highest scores in a variety of criteria used by Best Lawyers / U.S. News & World Report to rank the “Best Law Firms.”  Achieving a high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excellence and breadth of expertise. The mission of “Best Law Firms” from the start has been to help guide referring lawyers and clients – from the country’s largest companies needing corporate legal advice to individuals needing to get a divorce or write a will.
   Best Lawyers is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, and is based on more than 3.9 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
