KANSAS CITY - Chambers USA has released its 2013 rankings for lawyers and practice groups.

Polsinelli received high rankings for 53 attorneys and nine practice areas in four states.

Chambers' rankings are based on submissions put forward by law firms, interviews during the course of research and Chambers’ own database resources. Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best.

“Thank you to our clients who provided Chambers with valuable insight into our strategic partnerships,” said firm chairman Russ Welsh in a press release. “It’s a strong reflection of our dedication to understanding the challenges our clients face as general counsel and business leaders. We are proud to have this acknowledgement of so many of our lawyers across the country.”

New in 2013

Chambers USA recognized five new Polsinelli attorneys as national leaders in 2013. Additionally, six attorneys improved band rankings including two new Band 1 rankings for Arizona attorneys Lucas J. Narducci in Environmental (including water rights) and Edward F. Novak in Litigation: White-Collar Crime & Government Investigations.
