AZA, Firm Attorneys Rated Among Best in Commercial Litigation by Chambers USA

HOUSTON – The Houston-based law firm Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C., or AZA, has earned a coveted rating for its work in commercial litigation in the 2014 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, which also has recognized three firm attorneys as statewide commercial litigation leaders.

AZA provides efficient, award-winning client service to Fortune 500 and other corporations in the energy, technology and other sectors. AZA also is recognized by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America as one of the country’s best commercial litigation firms in the 2014 listing of the nation’s leading law firms. National corporate counsel named AZA one of the country’s best in client service among law firms serving the Fortune 1000.

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 those lawyers and law firms that demonstrate the top technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, diligence, commitment and other qualities most valued by clients.

AZA partners Sean Gorman, John Zavitsanos and Todd Mensing are named leaders in their field in Chambers USA, which is set for publication this spring. The 2014 honors were announced in late January. Messrs. Gorman, Zavitsanos and Mensing are acclaimed and nationally recognized litigators who regularly handle large, bet-the-company, sometimes billion-dollar cases for top companies.

“AZA is proud to be awarded this prestigious recognition for our deep bench of accomplished trial lawyers and the remarkable results we obtained for our major corporate clients in 2013,” says Mr. Zavitsanos, a founding partner in the firm.

Mr. Gorman, who joined the litigation boutique two years ago after practicing at a “Big Law” firm, says working at 30-lawyer AZA has been a terrific experience “with every attorney operating at full throttle, dedicated to providing the top client service anywhere.” This marks the second consecutive year he has been ranked in Chambers USA for his commercial litigation expertise.

Mr. Mensing says he is pleased to see the “well-oiled legal machine that is AZA” receive this recognition from such a highly-regarded international group.
