10 June 2011
WASHINGTON, D.C, 10 June 2011 – Hogan Lovells announced today that its automotive industry sector group was ranked in Band 1 by Chambers USA in the legal directory’s Transportation: Road (Carriage/Commercial) Nationwide category. Hogan Lovells lawyers comprise half of all those ranked by Chambers USA in the category. The annual guide, which is in its ninth year of publication, ranks lawyers and law firms based on in-depth interviews with attorneys, clients, and corporate counsel in the United States.
In addition to the top band ranking for the group, its leader, partner Carl J. Chiappa, and partners Jacqueline Glassman and Patrick Raher each were ranked in their respective areas of experience among the top two bands.
According to the 2011 edition of the legal guide, “Sources say [Carl Chiappa] is a ‘talented litigator in the franchise and distribution area on behalf of manufacturers.’ He also counsels clients on transactional matters.”
Within the directory, the editorial notes that Glassman, “…has a deep knowledge in these areas following a period working as chief counsel at the National Highway Traffic Safety Authority. Sources comment that she is a 'very able lawyer.'"
Chambers USA adds, “Patrick Raher's practice concentrates on the intersection of transportation and environmental law where he represents his clients' interests on legislative and rulemaking issues before regulatory bodies.”
