Chambers USA Recognizes HCMP Real Estate & Land Use Practice, and Two Attorneys for Excellence in Legal Counsel
HCMP's real estate and land use practice, and two individual attorneys, have been recognized for provision of outstanding legal services by Chambers & Partners in its 2018 USA Guide.
According to Chambers, the firm's real estate and land use practice is known as top-tier led by a solid and well-resourced team. It is highly regarded for its experience guiding public and private clients through the entire land development process, covering environmental compliance, land use analysis, financing, permitting and entitlement issues.
Market sources endorse the practice as a "major player" in the Washington land use space, characterizing it as a "very sophisticated" provider of "fantastic work" and a possessor of particularly noteworthy "expertise on destination resort and urban facility" issues.
Real estate and land use lawyer Ryan Durkan enjoys an excellent reputation as an environmental and land use attorney with a particularly strong command of land development and permitting issues. She is especially noted for her understanding of the state's often complex permitting system and of the political context within which land use rulings are made.
For its Bankruptcy/Restructuring ranking, Bradley Duncan, chair of the firm's Bankruptcy group, is recognized by Chambers sources as "an exceptionally experienced and really capable bankruptcy and restructuring lawyer" who is "very smart, very practical and a great deal-maker." He represents regional, national and international clients in state and federal courts.
Chambers & Partners is a London-based publishing company, producing legal services guides around the globe. Leading international law firms and individuals are ranked in principal areas of law. The Chambers USA Guide follows the same pattern, covering every state in the U.S. Top firms and attorneys are ranked and their merits described - often in the words of clients Chambers has interviewed as part of its research process.
