Krevolin HorstKrevolin & Horst, LLC is pleased to announce that Members Jeffrey D. Horst and Halsey G. Knapp have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2015 edition in the area of commercial litigation. Jeff has also been selected for inclusion as a Best Lawyer in the area Arbitration, and Halsey has additionally been selected as a Best Lawyer in Real Estate Law.

Jeff and Halsey’s dedication to excellence in litigation has attracted the attention of their peers for decades. Their record of achievement, passion for their practice, and professionalism places them among the very best of Atlanta’s commercial litigators. In addition to both being named Best Lawyers in America for several consecutive years, they have each also been recognized multiple times as tops in their fields by other publications such as Chambers USA Leading Lawyers, Super Lawyers, and Georgia Trend Legal Elite.

Described by his peers as a "an excellent litigator both in and out of the courtroom," Jeff is well-known for his creative approach, trial experience and successful track record in handling cutting edge legal issues. Jeff is Krevolin & Horst’s co-founder and senior litigator and handles a wide variety of business related disputes in the areas of appeals, business torts, corporate governance, covenants not to compete, intellectual property, officer and director liability, professional liability, securities litigation, shareholder disputes, and trade secrets. He has tried cases nationwide and been involved in a number of high-profile matters that have been written about in such publications as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Atlanta-Journal Constitution, and National Law Journal. Jeff is also a Fellow in the American Academy of Trial Counsel, an honor bestowed upon less than half a percent of lawyers nationwide.

After the 34 years of practice, Halsey and his litigation team joined Krevolin & Horst, expanding and strengthening its already outstanding litigation practice. Halsey is described as a "talented trial lawyer known for being tenacious" and "solution-oriented" which makes him a natural fit at Krevolin & Horst. Halsey has extensive trial experience with complex commercial litigation matters in state and federal courts across the United States. Halsey's trial practice incudes representing clients in corporate governance, business tort, trade secret, restrictive covenants, and technology litigation. Halsey also has extensive negotiation and dispute resolution experience with particular emphasis on business arrangements, limited liability entity operating agreements, executive contracts, real estate transactions, graceful employment departures, and more antagonistic, high stakes, "bet the company" business divorces and litigation.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers® is based on an exhaustive peer- the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers® is considered a singular honor.
