Chambers USA has once again recognized Porter Hedges’ Construction Practice among the leading practices in Texas (Band 1) in its 2015 law firm rankings. This client driven survey has named Porter Hedges in the top band for construction firms in Texas for eleven consecutive years, more than any other firm in the state.
Clients note the construction team is known for the following:
"Regularly reported all significant developments in a timely fashion, and always responded to various requests and inquiries as soon as reasonably possible."
"I don't think I could find a better or more competent firm."
Individual acknowledgment as “Leaders in Their Field” for the construction practice in Texas was received by David Peden (Band 1) who is singled out for being "a very seasoned attorney" as well as an "outstanding negotiator." "From my experience in dealing with him, when he is in the room and can quote the law by verse, it is almost intimidating to legal counsel representing other parties as they don't have that degree of knowledge," says one source. Allison Snyder (Band 2) is described as "very smart" by sources who praise her deep industry knowledge. John Hawkins (Band 2) is "very responsive and thorough. He is also sensitive to my need to control legal costs." (See here.)
Overall, Porter Hedges has seven practice areas and fourteen lawyers ranked in the Chambers USA guide. The Energy: Oil & Gas Transactional practice received national recognition among the leading practices in the country. The Banking & Finance, Bankruptcy/Restructuring, Capital Markets: Debt & Equity, Corporate/ M&A, and Environmental Practices were also recognized among leading practices in Texas.
