Pittsburgh & Philadelphia, PA—July 31, 2008 — Thorp Reed & Armstrong, LLP is pleased to announce that Partner William M. Wycoff was named in Chambers USA’s publication America’s Leading Lawyers as a “Leading Lawyer in Pennsylvania for Litigation (General Commercial).” This is the fifth consecutive year that Mr. Wycoff has been chosen for this distinction.
“All of us at Thorp Reed & Armstrong are proud to congratulate Bill Wycoff on this distinguished honor from his peers and clients," said Jeff Conn, Managing Partner of Thorp Reed & Armstrong. “For each of the past five years, Bill’s first-rate leadership of our corporate and commercial litigation practice group as well as his vibrant and original presence in the courtroom have resulted in this recognition from Chambers. In his day-to-day practice, Bill continues to prove himself to be highly deserving of this accolade.”
According to Chambers’ research, Mr. Wycoff’s clients and peers say he is “a dynamic litigator who secures the total confidence of his clients.” As chair of the 57-lawyer corporate and commercial litigation practice group, he is “extraordinarily thorough and very creative in his legal approaches.”
Chambers’ methodology for researching the strengths and reputations of law firms and individuals has been approved by the British Market Research Bureau. In-depth interviews with a vast range of lawyers and their clients are done over the telephone, each one lasting about half an hour. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities most valued by the client.
For the current US directory, thousands of interviews were conducted by a team of 50+ full-time researchers. The rankings and editorial comment about attorneys are independent and objective. Inclusion is based solely on the research team’s findings. Unlike its competitors, Chambers researches, compiles and launches completely new editions of their directories each year.
Chambers USA highlights leading lawyers in 30 practice areas across all 50 states. 40,000 copies are distributed to International and domestic clients throughout the United States with additional copies distributed worldwide. The guide is also widely used by firms in all states for referral purposes.
