May 19, 2015

Chambers USA has ranked 15 Kaye Scholer practices in 2015, recognizing more practices than in past years. This year’s rankings include the addition of two new practices and six nationwide positions. Five practices were also cited as “notable” in the guide. 

Chambers also recognized 43 Kaye Scholer attorneys as leading lawyers in their practices—another increase over last year—for a total of 47 individual rankings. (See complete list below.) Highlights include two attorneys ranked for the first time, six lawyers with improved rankings and three lawyers who attained new distinctions as “up and coming” or “associate to watch.” Four individuals were also listed as "recognized practitioners" in the guide.

The independent Chambers rankings are based on market research and interviews with clients and peers. This year’s gains underscore Kaye Scholer’s continued focus on the firm’s core litigation and transactional strengths in the Life Science and Financial Services sectors, and its continued commitment to creative and sophisticated solutions for clients.
