Ball Janik LLP Receives Recognition as Top Ranked Firm by Chambers USA 2015

June 15, 2015 – Portland, ORE. Ball Janik LLP has been recognized as an industry leader in Oregon by Chambers USA 2015. London-based Chambers & Partners, publisher of Chambers USA 2015, 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:

  • Stephen Janik – Real Estate and Zoning/Land Use
  • Bradley Miller – Real Estate
  • Laura Craska Cooper – Real Estate

Ball Janik is pleased to highlight that for the 8th consecutive year, Chambers USA has recognized our co-founder, Stephen Janik, as the sole Oregon real estate and land use lawyer with a “star ranking.” This honor is designated for lawyers with “exceptional recommendations in their field.” According to Chambers, commentators widely agree that Stephen Janik is “an outstanding attorney and go-to land use expert,” with one going so far as to call him “incredible and absolutely unparalleled” in the real estate market.

Further, Chambers noted that Bradley Miller is “unbelievably efficient.” According to clients, “he goes above and beyond what is what is expected. He is so fast and has such a sharp legal mind; he’s wonderful.”

Chambers also noted Bend-based Laura Craska Cooper is highly regarded for her strategic approach to negotiations with municipalities. Clients report Cooper is “responsive and efficient.” Her land use practice includes zoning permits for property redevelopments, and she has additional strength in homeowner association matters.
