HoganWillig PLLC works to improve and sustain our environment in a number of ways, as demonstrated by our annual highway clean-up, increasingly paperless office, and occupancy of one of Buffalo’s “green” buildings, a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) registered office building located at 2410 North Forest Road. These are among our more public efforts, but within the office we serve a number of clients in their pursuit, adoption and acquisition of renewable energy or other “green” technologies and the requisite legal and industry expertise that is incidental to these activities.
HoganWillig’s Estate Department represented two siblings in a hotly contested and litigated estate. The siblings were alleged out-of-wedlock children of the decedent. Our position was that the decedent had a long-standing relationship with our clients’ mother, even though he was married with marital children. Although the decedent had not completed a genetic blood test during his lifetime, we were able to have genetic testing completed of the known marital children against the DNA of the out-of-wedlock children to show evidence of a genetic link between all of the children.
The release of Business First’s 2010 law-firm rankings – an annual barometer of how the Western New York legal community is stacking up – is out.
Local attorneys say while it has been anything but business as usual over the last 12 months, there are signs that things are looking up – or that the sky was never falling as some people forecast.
One of HoganWillig’s best practices is that we encourage ideas and suggestions that can improve our business from employees at all levels. Management offers genuine respect to everyone; an attitude that permeates through the entire organization that creates an open and honest environment to share ideas.
