2016 Massachusetts Municipal Association Annual Meeting Handouts
It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces at the Massachusetts Municipal Association Annual Meeting on January 22-23 in Boston. We prepared several new updates for the meeting. The topics covered a wide range of legal issues, and links to each handout can be found below.
Congratulations to our 2015 Super Lawyer & Rising Star at K&P
Kopelman and Paige is pleased to report that Attorney Jonathan M. Silverstein, a Member of the firm, was named a Super Lawyer for 2015. The designation is bestowed after a rigorous selection process, including independent research and peer nomination and evaluations. The final published list represents no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state of Massachusetts.
Additionally, Kopelman and Paige is also pleased that Attorney Janelle M. Austin, an associate at the firm, was named a Rising Star for 2015. The Rising Star selection process mirrors the Super Lawyer selection process, and is for lawyers who are under a particular age or in practice for 10 years or less.
Congratulations to Jonathan and Janelle!
