Kilpatrick Stockton LLP announced today that the 2005-2006 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Business Lawyers has named it a “Leading Georgia Firm for Construction.”
After in-depth interviews with clients and attorneys across the country, Kilpatrick Stockton’s construction practice is described as a “multiservice firm continuing to evolve as a result of an expansive recruitment strategy that has seen the size of the team increase from 16 to 26 attorneys in the past year alone. This growth in size and stature has not passed unnoticed by commentators, who were quick to acknowledge that the firm is “increasingly a dominant force” in the Georgia marketplace.”
Kilpatrick Stockton is first among Georgia firms with the most named as “Leading Individuals in Construction.” Kilpatrick Stockton’s William Dorris achieved a number one ranking.
Kilpatrick Stockton’s “Leading Individuals in Construction” include:
Brian Corgan: “broad client base, ranging from owners to engineering and materials testing firms, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, sureties, and design professionals”
William Dorris: “a very smart attorney who is consistently ahead of the game”
Randy Hafer: “head of the firm’s construction and public contracts group, has represented many of the major participants in the construction industry on a wide variety of construction and engineering projects; impresses clients with his ability to get to the heart of the matter in seconds.”
Elizabeth Patrick: “a top-drawer attorney, who is intelligent and personable”
Tony Smith: “widely respected by peers; substantial experience as lead trial attorney in large, complex, multiparty construction disputes”
Neal Sweeney: “focuses on federal, state and local contracting and bid protests across the country; practice includes both private and public projects involving office buildings, hotels, hospitals, airports, schools and wastewater treatment plant.”
Firmwide, Kilpatrick Stockton has 42 of its attorneys in 13 distinct areas of practice listed among the annual Chambers & Partners guide to America’s Leading Business Lawyers.
