Gravel & Shea A Leading Firm in Chambers USA 2018

By  |  


Chambers & Partners, a national legal ranking organization, has named Gravel & Shea a leading firm in its 2018 Guide.

Using a rigorous methodology, Chambers assesses both practice areas and individual attorneys, ranking each on “the basis of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service.”  Their team of over 150 researchers interviews clients and lawyers active in the same market and assesses recent work done by the nominees, ultimately assigning Bands (1 being the highest and 6, the lowest).

Gravel & Shea is recognized as Band 1 in three practice areas.  Heather Rider Hammond and Timothy M. Eustace are also recognized separately for their labor and employment practice and land use and zoning practice, respectively.


According to the Chambers USA Guide, Gravel & Shea’s clients describe its longstanding corporate practice as “amazing,” with attorneys that are “smart, experienced and know what’s important.”
