Waterbury (July 16, 2012) --- The 2012 edition of Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business ranks two of Carmody & Torrance practice areas and six attorneys in the top tiers in Connecticut. Chambers USA is published by Chambers and Partners, a third-party research and publishing company that conducts extensive interviews with clients and members of the legal community, then ranks U.S. law firms and attorneys.
Carmody’s labor and employment group was included this year for the third year in a row. Three attorneys, D. Charles Stohler, Giovanna Tiberii Weller and Domenico Zaino, were highlighted for their extensive experience in labor and employment matters. Mr. Stohler was described by a client as “creative, strategic and conscientious; the quality of Chuck’s work is excellent." Ms. Weller was praised by clients for her outstanding client service and courtroom know-how, and Mr. Zaino was described as a pragmatic, frank communicator who sees all angles of a problem as well as the big picture.
Noted by clients for its flexibility to client needs, the litigation group was ranked again for its general commercial litigation practice. Three litigators, Anthony Fitzgerald, James Robertson and Trudy Hamilton were highlighted. Sources praised Mr. Fitzgerald for his “excellent judgment – if you seek a lead lawyer, his is the guy with major court experience.” Mr. Robertson, highlighted by Chambers USA for the past seven years in a row, was noted for his substantial courtroom experience, and Ms. Hamilton was praised for demonstrating superb skills in a variety of litigation areas, including medical malpractice.
“Carmody & Torrance takes great pride in these accolades because they are based on the feedback of our clients and peers,” says Managing Partner Brian T. Henebry. “We know we are successful when our clients are successful and feel that they are getting excellent value from their lawyers. This feedback tells us we are doing our jobs well.”
