Dinse Receives Top Rankings in Chambers USA 2014

The 2014 edition of Chambers USA, a leading directory of American lawyers and law firms, recognized 11 Dinse attorneys in their practice areas. The new guide, released May 23, also recognizes the firm as among Vermont’s best in every category of practice.

The firm’s Labor & Employment group was described as a “Deep bench with a broad range of technical expertise, covering all employment law bases”, with Chambers’ sources describing Dinse as “extremely well qualified, responsive and high caliber across the board.”

The firm’s Litigation group received the highest possible rating and clients agreed that Dinse’s Litigation group is “outstanding; thorough, completely proactive, able to be reactive when dealing with immediate matters, open and direct.”

The firm’s Real Estate group also received the highest ranking and was described by Chambers as a “Standout practice representing developers of solar, wind, and biomass energy in permitting and real estate matters.”

And the firm’s Corporate/Commercial group was top-ranked, Chambers’ sources saying Dinse is “a top firm. They have a group of people with knowledge in different areas so they are comfortable no matter what the concern.”
