The 2018 edition of Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business ranks two Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey LLP practice areas and nine attorneys, from our Real Estate, Environment, Litigation and Labor & Employment practices, in the top tiers in Connecticut.

The publication highlights William J. Hennessey, Jr. under Real Estate: Zoning/Land Use, who is described as a “terrific land use lawyer and a go-to land use lawyer in Stamford.” Attorneys M. Anne Peters and Pamela Elkow are recognized under Environmental.

Robertson, Jr., Anthony Fitzgerald and Trudie R. Hamilton.
