McDonald Carano proudly announces that Managing Partner George Ogilvie received the highest ranking of Band 1 from Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business. The 2022 edition of Chambers USA is the 10th consecutive year that George has been ranked in Construction Litigation. Chambers USA rankings are based on surveys and interviews with clients and extensive independent research on an attorney’s “legal knowledge and experience, ability, effectiveness and client service.”
