For the eleventh year in a row, the Firm was recognized by Chambers USA as a leading law firm in New York for business. The Firm specifically was recognized for its litigation capability, particularly in the field of insurance and reinsurance dispute resolution. In its independent review of the Firm, Chambers USA noted in 2018 that the Firm's "[e]xceptionally capable litigators . . . offer extensive recent experience in large-scale RMBS disputes." In 2016, Chambers USA reported that the Firm's attorneys "are absolute bulldogs in litigation, and offer small-firm attention with large-firm experience." In 2018 (and in prior years), Chambers USA ranked the Firm in Band 2 in its category, with only one law firm in New York being ranked higher, i.e., in Band 1. In addition to law firm rankings, Chambers USA recognized certain individual attorneys as leading practitioners in their areas. For 2018 (and in prior years), Chambers USA recognized William A. Maher in Band 2 and in 2017 described him as a "very skilled litigator [whose] . . . practice includes arbitrations as well as high-stakes trial proceedings."
