George Ogilvie Receives Chambers’ Highest Band 1 Ranking in Construction Litigation

McDonald Carano proudly announces that Chambers USA 2021 awarded George Ogilvie, Managing Partner of McDonald Carano, the highest ranking of Band 1 in Construction Litigation. The prestigious Band 1 recognition is bestowed upon lawyers who are the most highly regarded practitioners based on research in the categories of technical legal ability, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, professional conduct, experience, and effectiveness.

Chambers’ extensive research includes interviews with clients to assess client satisfaction and reputation in the market. Clients shared with Chambers that “George has a very good reputation in construction law cases, where he handles the larger matters.” “He is a very experienced attorney with a very good reputation among both lawyers and judges.”

George’s construction work primarily involves large private commercial projects and public works projects, including contractor-owner disputes, general contractor-subcontractor disputes, and construction defects. For example, George was lead counsel for the general contractor in the $1.1 billion litigation involving the construction of Project CityCenter, the general contractor in the litigation involving the $500 million Planet Hollywood Towers project,  the general contractor in the litigation involving the River Mountains Water Treatment Facility and the litigation involving the Raw Water Pumping System Expansion at Lake Mead.
