Dinse Receives Top Rankings in Chambers USA 2012

The 2012 edition of Chambers USA, a leading directory of American lawyers and law firms, recognized 14 Dinse attorneys in their practice areas. The new guide, released June 7, also recognizes the firm as among Vermont’s best in every category of practice.

The firm’s Labor & Employment group was described as a “powerhouse” with Chambers’ sources describing Dinse’s “hugely competent lawyers who know employment law inside and out and are very thoughtful and judicious in their advice.”

The firm’s Litigation group received the highest possible rating and Chambers’ observers agreed that Dinse’s “trial expertise and commercial awareness are unmatched in the state.”

The firm’s Real Estate group also received the highest ranking and was described by Chambers as “a potent real estate offering with outstanding attorneys.”

And the firm’s Corporate/Commercial group was top-ranked, Chambers’ sources saying Dinse is “a large enough firm to handle complicated matters, but small enough to get attention and a human aspect to relationships.”
