Butler Snow is pleased to announce attorney Blake C. Sharpton has been named to the Legal Elite 2015 ranking for public finance practice by Georgia Trend, a magazine featuring Georgia’s top business, politics and economic development news.

Legal Elite 2015 rankings are the result of an online ballot voted on by the 30,000 American Bar Association attorneys practicing in the state of Georgia for being in the top of their field. Any attorney who is a member of the state bar and practices in Georgia was allowed to vote. Firms cannot pay to be recommended for the listing, and attorneys cannot vote disproportionately for themselves or anyone at their firm.
