Florida Trend Names Three RumbergerKirk Partners to Legal Elite 2011

ORLANDO, FL – Each year, Florida Trend recognizes the state’s top attorneys as selected by their peers. Four RumbergerKirk partners – Daniel J. Gerber, Scott M. Sarason and Leonard J. Dietzen, III – have earned recognition in Florida Legal Elite 2011.

All three partners are recognized for the accomplishments in litigation including trial work. Dietzen, a labor and employment lawyer, is listed for the first time. Gerber is recognized for his work in commercial litigation and toxic tort law and Sarason for his product liability practice.

The sixth annual edition of Florida Trend’s Legal Elite is a prestigious roster recognizing 1.9% of the approximately 61,500 active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida. Beginning in October 2008, all in-state members of the Florida Bar were invited to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard. 

More than 18,000 votes were processed, checked and tabulated by Outsource American and Suncoast Opinion Surveys. A panel comprised of 2009 Legal Elite lawyers from around the state then reviewed the selection process and the list of finalists.


RumbergerKirk provides litigation and counseling services in a wide range of civil practice areas including product liability, commercial litigation, construction, intellectual property litigation, environmental, labor and employment law, insurance coverage, professional liability and administrative law.
