Polsinelli earns top rankings in Chambers USA

Chambers USA, a leading legal industry rankings organization, released its 2015 rankings for lawyers and practices. Polsinelli earned high placements by state, practice and attorney. Chambers rankings are based on information obtained from client interviews, submissions put forward by law firms and Chambers’ own database resources. Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands from 1-6, with 1 as best.

“Thank you to our clients who provided Chambers with valuable insight into our strategic partnerships,” said Polsinelli Chairman Russ Welsh. “It’s a strong reflection of our dedication to understanding the challenges our clients face as general counsel and business leaders. We are proud to have earned this acknowledgement of the caliber of so many of our lawyers across the country.”

In the Phoenix office, the White-Collar Crime & Government Investigations practice received a Rank 1 and the Corporate/M&A practice received a Rank 3. Individual Phoenix attorney rankings were received by Edward F. Novak in Litigation: White-Collar Crime & Government Investigations – Rank 1; Anne L. Kleindienst in Healthcare – Rank 2; Phillip P. Guttilla in Corporate/M&A – Rank 3: and Melissa Ho in Litigation: White Collar Crime & Government Investigation – Rank Up and Coming.
