For Fourth Consecutive Year, Chambers Recognizes Dowd Bennett in Band 1 Category in Two Practice Areas; Four Partners Individually Ranked

The 2024 Chambers USA Guide recognized Dowd Bennett in Band 1 for two practice areas in Missouri:  White Collar Crime & Government Investigations and Litigation: General Commercial.

The prestigious legal directory ranked three Dowd Bennett partners individually in Band 1 in Litigation:  White Collar Crime & Government Investigations:  Jim Bennett, Ed Dowd and Michelle Nasser.  A Chambers Band 1 ranking demonstrates that the firm and/or attorney, “has stood out in the most rigorous, independent and in-depth research process of any legal directory on the market.”

Additionally, Jim Bennett has been ranked a Band 1 attorney in the practice area of Litigation:  General Commercial.

Jim Martin, who recently went from partner to Of Counsel and has been a Chambers-ranked attorney for the past 18 years, has been ranked Senior Statespeople, “a lawyer who no longer works hands-on with the same intensity but who, by virtue of close links with major clients, remains pivotal to the firms success.”

In the state of Missouri, Dowd Bennett is home to three of the 17 individually ranked attorneys.  Furthermore, Bennett, Dowd and Nasser make up three of the four Band 1 attorneys in the state.

According to its website, Chambers USA is among the world’s leading legal data and analytics provider and known for its accuracy, depth and quality research of both law firms and attorneys.

“It is a great honor for our firm to recognized by Chambers which is widely considered to have one of the most thorough vetting and ranking systems in our profession,” said founding partner Ed Dowd. “Achieving excellent results for our clients is what drives us but it’s nice to have independent judgment that our hard work pays off.”
