The annual holiday gathering of the Business and Commercial Litigation and Appellate practice groups of Harris Beach PLLC took place on Tuesday, with host A. Vincent Buzard greeting guests and sharing a few remarks.
Experienced litigators and judges in the crowd remember the original holiday gatherings in the Granite Building, before Buzard was a part of Harris Beach.
“In those days, we invited Harris Beach hoping for some trickle down of business,” Buzard said. “At the time I didn’t know there would be a hostile take-over down the road,” he joked.
Speaking briefly from the staircase platform in the lobby of the Garnsey Road offices of Harris Beach, Buzard shared humorous stories, and emphasized his gratitude for practicing in a collegial town like Rochester.
“At the holidays, my dad used to say ‘next year is going to be the best year yet,’ and I say the same to you: next year is going to be the best year yet,” Buzard said.
