Barran Liebman LLP is honored to once again be distinguished as a Band 1 firm in the Chambers & Partners National Rankings for 2018. Each year, Chambers & Partners researchers conduct client and attorney interviews in order to identify individual attorneys and firms who exceed qualities that are most valued by clients. This is the 16th year in a row that Barran Liebman has received Band 1 recognition and this continued dedication to excellence is what makes the firm the longest ranking on the list.
In addition to the firm’s notable expertise within the Labor & Employment practice area, Barran Liebman’s efforts to lead by example are reflected in the firm’s devotion to clients, the community, and the profession as a whole. In this year’s rankings, a client stated, “They are great business partners. They use their knowledge to apply solutions that make sense for our business needs and circumstances. All of their services are extremely good and the value for the money is excellent.” The firm is proud of the tremendous dedication from the Barran Liebman team and is excited to announce the following individual award recipients.
Paula Barran has held Band 1 recognition since 2003 and Edwin Harnden has held Band 1 recognition since 2009. This is the highest honor conferred by Chambers & Partners and Barran Liebman is proud to see these influential partners retain this ranking for yet another year in a row. One client noted that Paula is “at the top of the game” and is “recognized statewide as an expert in her field.” Another commentator stated that Ed is “a legal leader in the state.” In addition, Richard Liebman received the “Senior Statesman” ranking for his longstanding commitment and exceptional work in the Labor & Employment practice area. His extensive experience and leadership has led him to maintain this ranking since 2003. Last but not least, Barran Liebman is excited to once again announce Amy Angel as an “Up & Coming Attorney” in the field of Labor & Employment Law. She has substantial experience defending employers and is a frequent speaker on many cutting-edge employment topics. Barran Liebman is excited to announce these recognitions, and is grateful to the entire Barran Liebman team for their contribution in these successes.
