12th “Lawyer of the Year” Award in Construction Law & Litigation

In the 2024 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, McDonald Carano celebrated our 12th “Lawyer of the Year” award in Construction Law & Litigation. George Ogilvie (Las Vegas) received the Construction Law award in 2024 and 2020 and the Construction Litigation award in 2019; Matt Addison (Reno) received the Construction Litigation award in 2024 and 2016; James Bradshaw (Reno) received the Construction Litigation award in 2021; William Magrath (Reno) received the Construction Law award in 2023 and 2021 and the Construction Litigation award in 2023, 2019, 2015 and 2012. 

“Lawyer of the Year” honors are awarded to only one lawyer in a specific area of law in a specific region who achieves “extremely high overall feedback from their peers, making it an exceptional distinction.” Only 0.4% of those in private practice received the “Lawyer of the Year” distinction. George, Matt, Jim, and Bill serve construction industry clients from around the world with legal services needs on projects throughout Nevada.
