Nine Dickinson attorneys have been honored in the newly-published 2012 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business. The firm was ranked in every area of law (Labor & Employment, Corporate/M&A, Real Estate, and Litigation) researched by Chambers & Partners in the state of Iowa.

Chambers & Partners, which publishes the annual guide, bases its rankings on in-depth interviews with attorneys and clients, giving greater weight to clients’ comments. Chambers published the following comments about Dickinson Law:

“They have always been spot-on with their legal guidance.”

“(The firm) communicates well, is accessible and has great knowledge of the regulatory landscape.”

This year, Chambers recognized the following attorneys as leading individuals in their respective areas of law:

Howard O. Hagen (Corporate/M&A: Banking & Finance)

(Hagen received special recognition as a “Star Individual” and the only Iowa attorney to be named a “Star Individual” in the area of Corporate/M&A: Banking & Finance)

Jill Jensen-Welch (Labor & Employment)

Jeffrey A. Krausman (Labor & Employment)

F. Richard Lyford (Litigation: General Commercial)

Richard A. Malm (Corporate/M&A)
