Lowenstein Sandler once again leads New Jersey with the most top ranked practices and attorneys, according to the 2007 Chambers USA Guide to America's Leading Lawyers for Business. The firm's Corporate, Litigation, and Environmental practices maintained top standing over all other firms in the state, a ranking that has held true since the Guide's inception. Additionally this year, several other practices were singled out for excellence, including Intellectual Property, Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation, Labor & Employment, and Real Estate.
Here is some of what Chambers had to say about Lowenstein practices:
Corporate: "The one and only," according to commentators, this "perennially strong leader" has an exceptional standing in the marketplace; clients and peers agree that the "top tier is Lowenstein's alone," confirming that this really is "the best corporate practice in the state - it compares extremely favorably with NYC firms."
Litigation: Known for a "personal, client-oriented approach," interviewees issued glowing reports of the firm's efforts on their behalf in complex, multi-jurisdictional litigation.
Environmental: This New Jersey Goliath "probably has the premium environmental practice in the state," according to observers.
Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation: This outfit weds "considerable breadth of experience and knowledge" of novel issues to a "creative approach that aids it in assisting clients."
Intellectual Property: This solid team impresses clients with a creative approach to IP that goes hand in hand with the firm's sophisticated technology-oriented corporate practice.
Labor and Employment: "One of the best," according to peers, who confide that they would be comfortable to refer work to a firm that is adept at both counseling clients in trial avoidance and at representing its followers aggressively once in court.
Real Estate: Hailed as "excellent due to its depth and breadth across the board," this firm's attorneys demonstrate "a very solid and practical approach to real estate law."
Lowenstein Sandler has announced that Robert J. Paradiso has joined the firm as member and leader of the Tech Group's life sciences patent practice. Mr. Paradiso is an Intellectual Property attorney with an established practice assisting domestic and international corporations, as well as higher learning institutions, on virtually all aspects of IP.
