"Terrific, straight-shooting lawyers."
Gordon & Rees announces that our California Insurance Practice has been included in the 2010 edition of Chambers USA: The Client's Guide to America's Leading Lawyers for Business. Since 1999, Chambers has been researching the U.S. legal profession, identifying “the world’s leading lawyers and law firms” through in-depth research and independent interviews with clients and lawyers. According to Chambers, "No lawyers are included unless they are strongly recommended by the market" and "No lawyer can buy their way into our rankings."
Chambers’ Guides include editorial comment based on market research and quotes from client interviews. Gordon & Rees shares the following information about our California Insurance Practice as it appears in Chambers USA 2010.
