LAS VEGAS (June 6, 2016) – James J. Pisanelli and Todd L. Bice, founding partners of Pisanelli Bice PLLC, announced today that the boutique law firm has been named among the country’s best litigation firms in rankings compiled by the prestigious service Chambers and Partners.
Pisanelli Bice is one of only three Nevada firms honored in Band 1 of the Chambers USA 2016 guide for General Commercial Litigation. Chambers and Partners ranks attorneys and firms based on interviews with their clients and legal colleagues. The guide’s researchers report that Pisanelli Bice provides “quality representation in a range of commercial litigation for local gaming and hotel resorts, governmental bodies and construction companies,” and is “highly experienced at both trial and appellate level in issues arising out of corporate and real estate transactions including (mergers and acquisitions) and major property developments.”
The firm, which has represented Caesars Entertainment, Bally Technologies, MGM Resorts, City National Bank and Wynn Resorts, among other high-profile clients, rose from Band 2 in 2015 to Band 1 distinction this year based on Chambers’ in-depth analysis of its handling of pre-trial negotiations, documentation and preparation for trial, summary judgment motions, trial, appeals and commercial enforcement proceedings in state, circuit and federal courts.
“We are thrilled and honored to be recognized among the best commercial litigators in the country,” Pisanelli said. “We pride ourselves on personal, comprehensive representation, and the Chambers ranking validates what our clients already know – that our intense focus on commercial litigation and our conscious decision to maintain a small, professional team enables us to concentrate all our expertise and resources on meeting our clients’ specific needs.”
Chambers spotlighted both founders as outstanding litigators.
“They’re a force to be reckoned with,” one client reported.
The guide’s rankings and commentary, which are accessible at www.chambersandpartners.com/guide/usa/5, note that Pisanelli’s “wealth of experience across a number of areas, often representing clients in commercial litigation in the gaming, healthcare and construction industries” makes him “a really brilliant lawyer who is a master in the courtroom.”
Bice, Chambers’ sources say, is “highly skilled [and] widely respected by peers for his work in both trial and appellate matters. He is notably experienced in complex gaming disputes, as well as defamation and First Amendment litigation.”
