Chambers USA has recognized ASM and its attorneys for the eleventh year in a row for its expertise in construction law in the District of Columbia. In addition to the firm’s Band 2 ranking, Chambers named five of ASM’s partners – Chuck Asmar, John McKenna (posthumously), Christopher Taggi, Larry Schor, and Allison Geewax – among the publication’s ranked practitioners.
Regarding ranked attorneys, clients stated that Chuck Asmar “gives very practical advice and is adept at finding the most efficient path to resolving disputes.” Christopher Taggi was praised as a “smart and creative” construction litigation specialist. Another client noted that Larry Schor was “an excellent attorney and partner,” especially sought after for construction-related government contract matters, with his practice also covering a range of private construction projects. Allison Geewax was highlighted as “a very competent and knowledgeable attorney with excellent communication and relationship skills.”
Chambers also recognized the late John McKenna, who died in February of this year, as “extremely competent and knowledgeable with a strong business sense and a superb ability to negotiate without antagonizing the other parties involved,” and “the go-to construction law resource for sound advice on complex transactions, construction disputes or insurance claims.”
ASM is grateful for Chambers USA’s continued recognition of the firm and is particularly proud of the firm’s elevation from Band 3 to Band 2 this year.
