May 29, 2014 – Portland, ORE. Ball Janik LLP has been recognized as an industry leader in Oregon by Chambers USA 2014. London-based Chambers & Partners, publisher of Chambers USA 2014, is a directory of select U.S. lawyers and law firms. Ball Janik LLP was recognized in the areas of general commercial litigation and real estate, and four individual Ball Janik partners were recognized for their respective practices:
- Laura Craska Cooper – Real Estate
- Stephen Janik – Real Estate and Zoning/Land Use
- Bradley Miller – Real Estate
Ball Janik is also pleased to highlight that Chambers USA once again recognized co-founder Stephen Janik as receiving a “star ranking,” which is designated for lawyers with “exceptional recommendations in their field.” According to Chambers, commentators widely agree that Stephen Janik is “the best real estate lawyer in town,” with one going so far as to call him “a meteoric superstar” of the real estate market.
Chambers also noted “Bend-based Laura Craska Cooper is highly regarded for her skills in both the transactional and land use areas, and has recently been active on the development of large commercial and mixed-use real estate projects. Clients report Cooper ‘knows land use laws perfectly’ and appreciate that she ‘shows the authorities how to approve a project instead of how to delay or deny it.'”
Further, Chambers noted that Bradley Miller does “exceptionally good work” and “is incredibly productive and turns things around quickly.”
