Chambers USA: Sherman & Howard

Six attorneys from Sherman & Howard in Arizona  were recognized in the 2015 release of Chambers USA – America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.  This honor follows a rigorous and independent law firm research and evaluation process that seeks to identify and rank the world’s best lawyers (i.e., those who perform best according to the criteria most valued by clients – such as technical expertise, business acumen, prompt delivery and value for money).

Chambers recognized Sherman & Howard attorneys practicing in Labor & Employment, Real Estate and Litigation: General Commercial in Arizona. Here’s what they had to say*:

Labor & Employment
The firm’s Labor & Employment group is highly regarded for defending management in bet-the-company cases, collective bargaining and whistle-blowing matters.

Raymond Deeny continues to lead the labor and employment field at the firm, handling a large number of significant federal and state jury trials and arbitrations.  Observers note that he is “responsive, practical and knowledgeable.  He understands how businesses operate and can communicate with people at all levels of an organization.”

John Alan Doran, who leads the firm’s Labor and Employment Group in both Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, is regarded as a talented employment litigator, with recent work including successfully representing the City of Phoenix when the United Phoenix Firefighters Association sued the city as an attempt to halt changes to pay practices.  A source says: “He is creative in his search for answers to problems and he is extremely responsive.”

Real Estate
Sherman & Howard real estate attorneys advise clients across a wide range of matters, including complex financings and commercial leases.

Azim Hameed manages the firm’s Real Estate Practice Group in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona.  He handles a diverse range of real estate matters, including leasing and acquisitions, and often works on behalf of home builders and other developers.  Interviewees appreciate his “timeliness in delivering work product” and his “immense knowledge and experience base.”

Peter Spiller practices in the firm’s Scottsdale, Arizona office.  He was ranked as a “Notable Practitioner” in the Real Estate – Arizona listing.  He represents purchasers and sellers of real property in the negotiation and administration of a variety of acquisition and sale agreements.

Litigation
Sherman & Howard offers expertise in handling partnership battles, business torts and financial fraud.

Gregory Falls, who manages the firm’s Phoenix and Scottsdale offices, was recognized by Chambers as a “Notable Practitioner” in the Litigation: General Commercial – Arizona category.  Greg represents individuals, companies and other organizations in litigation disputes related to ownership or operation of real property, contracts or other related commercial litigation.

David Weatherwax, a member in Sherman & Howard’s Phoenix office with more than 33 years of experience representing clients in all types of business disputes and creditor’s rights matters, was recognized as a “Notable Practitioner” in this edition of Chambers.
