Chaffetz Lindsey LLP’s name partners, Peter Chaffetz and David Lindsey, have both been recognized in Chambers USA 2009: The World’s Leading Lawyers for Business. Chambers, a well-known legal industry guide, rates lawyers through independent investigation, including interviews with clients, practitioners and other professionals with knowledge of the legal market.
Regarding Mr. Chaffetz, Chambers reported:
“The highly respected Peter Chaffetz recently left Clifford Chance to start up his own firm, Chaffetz Lindsey LLP. [Mr. Chaffetz] has received praise for ‘getting to the heart of a matter’ and for being ‘excellent in the questioning of witnesses.’”
Concerning Mr. Lindsey, the publication remarked:
“David Lindsey, former head of Clifford Chance’s Americas international arbitration practice, has created Chaffetz Lindsey LLP with a number of other partners from his old firm. [Mr. Lindsey] is especially active in commercial arbitration and clients praise his litigation abilities.”
This is the 10th year in a row that Chambers USA has recognized Mr. Chaffetz and Mr. Lindsey and the practices that they moved from Clifford Chance to their new firm.
