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.”

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.”
