Nine attorneys from Orr & Reno have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Peter F. Burger, Robert S. Carey, William L. Chapman, Judith A. Fairclough, Susan S. Geiger, Margaret Kerouac, James E. Morris, Douglas L. Patch and George W. Roussos earned the distinction for a wide range of practice areas. This is the first year of recognition for Carey while all other attorneys have been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for multiple years.

Additionally, three Orr & Reno attorneys were selected as Concord’s “Lawyer of the Year” for a specific practice area. This distinction is awarded to just a single attorney in each practice area in the community. “Lawyer of the Year” recipients include: Burger – Commercial Finance; Geiger – Energy Law; Roussos – Government Relations.

The Best Lawyers in America[1] is considered the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States and inclusion is based on a confidential peer-review study by tens of thousands of lawyers. Lawyers are not permitted to pay a fee to be included in the listings, which were first published in 1983.
