For the eighth consecutive year, Chambers USA 2012, released on June 7, 2012, has ranked Freehill Hogan & Mahar in the top tier of New York maritime law firms, where FHM is joined by only one other firm. In addition to again ranking the firm No. 1, Chambers has singled out thirty-five New York shipping attorneys as “Leading Individuals” and seven, more than from any other firm, are FHM partners: Peter Gutowski, Wayne Meehan, Don Murnane, Bill Juska, Eric Lenck and Gina Venezia. Chambers USA’s profile of FHM states in part that the firm is “Undoubtedly one of the leading players in the New York maritime market…” with “…a talent for handling complex shipping litigation…” and “…the depth to handle sophisticated cases.” ChambersUSA listed FHM as one of only two firms “Recommended for Client Service Nationwide” quoting a client as saying: “It is a well-oiled, finely tuned machine. They are prompt, efficient and economical without compromising quality.”

FHM was the only firm “Recommended for Commercial Awareness Nationwide” with ChambersUSA quoting another firm client: “It really sticks out that they look at the commercial impact and always have an eye on the business side.”
