Hackensack, NJ - Cole Schotz, a leading advisor to closely-held businesses and Fortune 500 companies, has been recognized by (201) Magazine in the June 2012 edition. Forty-one Cole Schotz attorneys in Hackensack, N.J., were honored as Top Lawyers in Bergen County.

To create the Top Lawyers list, (201) Magazine teamed with Lexis Nexis Martindale-Hubbell, the company that has long set the standard for peer review ratings. Lexis Nexis Martindale-Hubbell tapped its comprehensive database to identify lawyers who have been rated by their peers as AV Preeminent – the highest Peer Review Rating available. Peer Review Ratings are driven by the confidential opinions of lawyers and members of the judiciary who receive invitations, via online survey or by mail, to provide reviews of lawyers of whom they have professional knowledge.

(201) Magazine is published by the North Jersey Media Group, which also publishes The Record of Bergen County and more than 40 community newspapers and magazines.
