Philadelphia, PA (June 10, 2005) – Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP has been ranked among the top firms in Pennsylvania for its antitrust, environmental, general commercial litigation and real estate practices by Chambers USA, an independent guide to the legal profession. Five Schnader partners were also named among the top practitioners in Pennsylvania.
Chambers bases its lawyer rankings on multiple in-depth interviews with in-house counsel, clients and peer lawyers.
In the antitrust arena, Chambers said Schnader “boasts a rich tradition of providing litigation and counseling services in the area of antitrust and trade litigation.” The guide ranked Schnader’s antitrust litigators as being “strong on the plaintiff side as well as the defense side.”
In its environmental practice, Schnader receives “particular accolades” for its Superfund work, according to Chambers. Robert Collings “stands at the helm of the firm’s environmental practice” and his experience encompasses air, water and solid and hazardous waste issues, Chambers reported.
General commercial litigation is a traditional strength of the firm, particularly in the area of intellectual property litigation, Chambers said. Schnader’s litigation practice is certainly “national, and much of its workload is actually international in scope,” the guide reported. Chambers cited Dennis Suplee‘s broad range of experience, including his extensive trademark, toxic tort, general commercial and antitrust litigation.
Of Schnader’s real estate practice, Chambers said the Firm “houses some of the most experienced practitioners within the state’s real estate community . . . and its lawyers have been at the vanguard of all the most important emerging areas of real estate law.” Marilyn Kutler was cited as “insightful” and “highly impressive” in real estate and government contract matters, according to Chambers. Kenneth Rosenberg was lauded for his “outstanding ability to get the deal stamped and sealed successfully,” Chambers said.
