Felhaber Larson Ranked at the Top Again by Chambers USA

  • Aug 7, 2018

Felhaber Larson was listed once again as a Leading Law Firm in the 2018 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.

The Chambers Guides have been ranking the best law firms and lawyers since 1990, and now cover 185 jurisdictions throughout the world. Chambers ranks both lawyers and law firms based on the research of 150 full-time editors and researchers. They talk to lawyers and clients, conducting in-depth telephone interviews to insure that only the top quality practitioners are selected for this prestigious directory.

We feel particularly honored that our Labor & Employment practice section was selected again for Band 1 (the highest level), one of only two law firms in the state to achieve this designation. Three of our section members were selected for special recognition as “notable practitioners”: Sara McGrane, Penny Phillips, and Paul Zech.

Here is what Chambers USA said about us:

What the team is known for:  “Draws upon deep experience in traditional labor matters and the representation of healthcare clients, complementing these focus areas with capabilities such as compliance, discrimination claims and class action defense. Also advises on alternative dispute resolution in this space, and maintains a strong employee benefits team.”

Notable practitioners

Penelope Phillips offers a respected practice that encompasses all aspects of employment law, including wage and hour law, discrimination claims and whistle-blower cases. Impressed interviewees call her “a high-level adviser” and “a very, very good lawyer.”

Paul Zech is highlighted by market commentators for his strength in the traditional labor law field. He handles matters such as union negotiations and labor arbitrations. Observers call him “a top-notch lawyer” and describe him as “collegial, smart and responsive.”

Sara McGrane is a respected litigator with a focus on employer-employee disputes, including those concerning allegations of discrimination, breach of contract and wage and hour violations.
