Peter Van Dyke Named Top 100 Labor Attorney in America

June 26, 2006

Peter T. Van Dyke, a shareholder with the law firm of McAfee & Taft, is the only Oklahoman to be recently named to the list of “Top One Hundred Labor Attorneys in the United States” for 2006, as compiled by Labor Relations Institute, Inc.

Inclusion on the list puts Van Dyke in the top one percent of all labor attorneys in the United States, making him one of the most active attorneys representing companies in National Labor Relations Board-monitored elections.

Van Dyke made the list by being selected from more than 8,700 attorneys evaluated by Labor Relations Institute, a leading industry information source.  The honor of “Top One Hundred” was determined by the number of NLRB elections in which each attorney provided representation and the success of those election outcomes.

“To be included in the Top One Hundred is a tremendously prestigious honor,” said LRI president Donald P. Wilson.  “It demonstrates a long-term and highly professional dedication to those attorneys’ clients and profession.”

Van Dyke’s achievements in the area of labor and employment law have also earned him recognition and inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business and Who’s Who in American Law.  In addition to his law practice, he also serves as an adjunct professor at the Oklahoma City University School of Law.

McAfee & Taft serves clients throughout the Southwest and nationally in the areas of aviation, business law, corporate and securities, employee benefits, entertainment, environmental law, healthcare, intellectual property, labor and employment, litigation, oil and gas, real estate, and tax and family wealth.  The firm employs over 200 Oklahomans, including nearly 120 attorneys.
