The 2017 edition of Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business ranks two Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessy LLP practice areas and eight attorneys in the top tiers in Connecticut. Chambers USA is a publication by Chambers and Partners, a third-party research and publishing company, that ranks U.S. Law firms and attorneys based on extensive interviews with clients and members of the legal community.
Carmody’s Labor and Employment Group was included and noted for “a depth of litigation experience and claims concerning discrimination, retaliation and harassment, among other matters.” Chambers USA highlights three attorneys, D. Charles Stohler, Domenico Zaino and Giovanna Weller, for their extensive experience in labor and employment matters. Mr. Stohler is noted as “a solid practitioner” with a “good reputation in the state.” Mr. Zaino is described by his peers as “a very solid leader” and is praised by clients for his “outstanding client service” and one interviewee opined “Ms. Weller is an incredible trial attorney – she can litigate and defend anything.”
The Litigation Group, termed “excellent on all fronts,” is ranked again for its general commercial litigation practice. One source noted: “This is the best medium-sized firm that I have dealt with.” The publication highlights three attorneys, Anthony Fitzgerald, James Robertson and Trudie Hamilton. Mr. Fitzgerald is described as a “highly regarded trial attorney.” Mr. Robertson is noted for his skills in environmental disputes, employment litigation and securities litigation and Ms. Hamilton “wins plaudits for her experience defending against personal injury, product liability and medical malpractice claims.”
The publication also highlights attorneys Pamela Elkow and William Hennessey. Ms. Elkow is recognized under Environmental and is described as “a fabulous lawyer who gets things done.” Mr. Hennessey is recognized under Real Estate: Zoning/Land Use and is noted as “one of the most prominent land use lawyers in the state.”
