Matt Cairns Selected 'Lawyer of the Year' for Construction Litigation by Best Lawyers®

CONCORD, NH — Best Lawyers®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named R. Matthew Cairns as Concord's Best Lawyers® "Lawyer of the Year” - Construction Litigation for 2015.

Cairns represents individuals, insurers, manufacturers, transportation and other companies in diverse commercial, complex and traditional litigation matters in all state and federal courts and state agencies. He serves as general counsel to several closely held businesses in New Hampshire, and is experienced in general corporate and municipal representation, and risk management training.

He is also listed in the annual publication of The Best Lawyers in America® in the fields of Labor and Employment Litigation, Municipal Litigation, and Personal Injury Litigation - Defendants.

Best Lawyers® began designating “Lawyers of the Year” in the U.S. in high-profile legal practice areas in 2009. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant.

The lawyers honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in Best Lawyers® surveys and exhaustive peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

The editors of Best Lawyers issued a statement saying “We continue to believe — as we have believed for over 30 years — that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. The Editors of Best Lawyers would like to congratulate all of the lawyers who have been selected as “Lawyers of the Year” for 2015.”
