Chambers USA 2009
This 14-lawyer team has a nationwide reputation for handling high-profile white-collar criminal cases in the full glare of the media spotlight. Clients and peers are effusive in their praise of Roy Black, who has become something of a celebrity with frequent appearances on NBC and a stint as managing partner on the reality television show ‘The Law Firm’. Among his highest profile recent cases is his representation of Efraim Diveroli, a defense contractor who is accused of misrepresenting the type of ammunition he sold to the US government. Howard Srebnick has built a reputation as a fearless defense attorney: “He takes no prisoners and, if you want to fight the government, there are few better.” Lawrence Stumpf heads the firm’s civil litigation practice and has a great deal of trial experience, which shows in “his calm presence in the courtroom and the excellent way he relates to judges and jurors.” He represented The Cordish Companies, one of the world’s largest property developers, in a case brought by Donald Trump.
