This year, Baltimore SmartCEO asked its readers, who consist of more than 15,000 Baltimore area top-level business leaders and decision-makers, who is their “go to attorney?” The responses were tallied and HPK’s own Managing Director, Drake Zaharris, once again, has landed a spot on this distinguished list. Joining Drake with this honor is new HPK attorney, Gregory S. Weiner.
“Having two attorneys from our Corporate and Businesses Services Group make this list is very impressive,” states HPK Marketing Director, Nicole Ames. “Drake is a very well respected and well known attorney in the Towson/Baltimore area and I am not surprised he has made this list again. When I heard that Greg was selected as well, it reaffirmed my belief that the firm had made a very good decision in bringing him on board.”
Drake has been the Managing Director of HPK since 2007, and has an active corporate litigation and business practice. He works primarily with individuals and business owners in the Baltimore area in complex commercial litigation, contract disputes, construction and financing litigation, purchase and sale of businesses and business formation and financing.
