WASHINGTON, DC (May 31, 2013) Buckley Sandler LLP, a nationally recognized financial services and criminal and civil enforcement defense law firm, is pleased to announce that the firm and eight of its partners have once again received top rankings in Chambers USA, which ranks leading firms and lawyers in a range of practice areas throughout the U.S. based on in-depth client and peer research. Buckley Sandler had the greatest number of partners highlighted in the category of Financial Services Regulation: Consumer Finance (Compliance), as well as the highest percentage of partners at any firm recognized in the Financial Services categories.

Chambers USA recognizes Buckley Sandler for its "stellar profile in consumer finance litigation" and significant reputation as provider of a "broad range of consumer regulatory advice to some of the country's biggest banking brands," noting that the firm does "an impeccable job keeping their clients informed of current developments." Chambers USA provided individual attorney recognition to seven partners in one or more of the Financial Services categories, including firm Chairman and Executive Partner Andrew L. Sandler as a “Star Individual” in Financial Services: Litigation, and recognized David S. Krakoff in District of Columbia Litigation: White-Collar Crime & Government Investigations.

According to Chambers USA, "Any mortgage lender, servicer or real estate specialty firm would be myopic to overlook Buckley Sandler for legal representation and counsel,” adding that Buckley Sandler is “one of the most enterprising firms in the financial services sector.”

“We are pleased that Chambers USA has once again recognized our firm and so many of our partners for our commitment to providing outstanding legal work and client service” noted Sandler. “This recognition is especially meaningful to us because Chambers’ research methodology focuses on peer and client review, with rankings based on qualities most valued by clients.”
