For the fourth consecutive year, Goldberg Segalla ranks among the preeminent law firms in the “General Commercial Litigation” category for Upstate New York in Chambers USA, the annual guidebook to the best lawyers and law firms in the U.S.

Christopher J. Belter, chair of the firm’s Corporate Services and Commercial Litigation Practice Group, again ranks as a “Recognized Practitioner” in the guide.

This year’s guide notes Goldberg Segalla’s “experience across a breadth of contentious business matters” and the firm’s placement and resources “to represent clients from a broad range of industries and sectors, including financial services, construction, retail and hospitality.” The guide also recognizes the firm’s reputation for providing “specialist advice” ranging “from day-to-day and regulatory guidance to litigation derived from multijurisdictional transactions, with notable expertise in shareholder litigation, class actions, and intellectual property disputes.”

“They’re top notch in smarts, strategy, practical implementation and budget management, — my first call with litigation questions, big and small; they focus intently on the end game,” one client told Chambers.

Another source added, “The team is well-rounded and can manage all aspects of a lawsuit from discovery to trial.”

The 2018 Chambers guide highlighted the firm’s high-profile defense of the Town of Amherst, New York against a breach of contract claim by Micro-Link in relation to Amherst’s overpayment of the plaintiff under a contract to manage the town’s wastewater treatment plant; as well as another widely publicized matter, the firm’s successful representation of the Williamsville Central School District in an administrative hearing regarding the termination of the district’s assistant superintendent of human resources.

The guide also recognized Goldberg Segalla’s Insurance practice in Pennsylvania.

Chambers guides are the culmination of thousands of in-depth interviews by the largest research team of its kind. Attorneys and global leaders in government and industry trust the Chambers guides to rank objectively the world’s top lawyers and firms.
