May 27, 2014
HOUSTON – The Houston-based law firm Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C., or AZA, and three firm partners are top-rated in commercial litigation in the just-released 2014 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.
The Chambers USA profile of AZA describes the firm as a “rapidly growing boutique practice with an impressive reputation in the energy sector, not least in the oil and gas arena. Widely praised for its tough representation in complex disputes.”
An AZA client told Chambers, “They came in with fresh, new, aggressive ideas and thought outside of the box.”
Chambers USA is published by London-based Chambers and Partners, which is recognized worldwide for its thorough guides to the legal profession. The company bases its rankings on thousands of interviews with attorneys and clients to identify lawyers and law firms that demonstrate the top technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, diligence, commitment and other qualities most valued by clients.
The editors of Chambers USA ranked AZA partners Sean Gorman, John Zavitsanos and Todd Mensing as leaders in their field. All three attorneys are acclaimed and nationally recognized litigators who regularly handle large, bet-the-company cases, sometimes with more than a billion dollars at stake.
One of Mr. Gorman’s clients told Chambers USA: “He achieved results in trial beyond my highest expectations – I was really impressed with his toughness as a trial lawyer. He’s also a skilled strategist in litigation – you don’t always get that combination together.”
Another client described Mr. Zavitsanos as a “rock-solid” litigator, saying, “I’ve never had more confidence in a litigation team than the team he put together.”
Up-and-coming commercial litigator Mr. Mensing was praised by one client as “one of the brightest and most effective lawyers I’ve used. His results and his dedication are excellent, and I feel comfortable giving him complex and difficult cases because he has the creativity and persistence to fight a hard corner.”
