The founding partners of Pisanelli Bice PLLC, James J. Pisanelli and Todd L. Bice, announced that the boutique law firm has been named among the best litigation firms in the country by Chambers and Partners. In addition, Bice has been selected Las Vegas Lawyer of the Year in the Litigation-Land Use and Zoning category by the Best Lawyers in America rating service, based on attorneys’ peer reviews.
Chambers and Partners ranks attorneys and firms based on interviews with their clients and legal colleagues. Pisanelli Bice is one of only three Nevada firms honored in Band 1 of the Chambers USA 2016 guide for General Commercial Litigation. The firm, which has represented Caesars Entertainment, Bally Technologies, MGM Resorts, City National Bank and Wynn Resorts, rose from Band 2 in 2015 to Band 1 distinction this year based on 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.
Bice achieved the highest rating in this year’s Litigation-Land Use and Zoning category for his familiarity and skill in handling the complex litigation surrounding public and private construction and development. Attorneys listed in Best Lawyers in America are voted into practice areas as a result of the votes they receive from their peers. Best Lawyers assigns the subspecialties based on analysis of information from a variety of sources.
