Riker Danzig was again distinguished as a “Powerhouse Law Firm” in New Jersey by Law360 on its 2022 list of firms that “stood out in the state's competitive market.” Only five firms made the list, published on August 5, 2022. Riker Danzig was also honored as a Powerhouse Law Firm in 2021, as well as 2015 and 2017.
The Law360 article details impressive matters for clients ranging from “corporate behemoths and developers to hospitals and government agencies,” where attorneys were called upon “to navigate the Garden State's regulatory and judicial waters, advance major real estate projects and secure courtroom victories.” It was noted that having “a keen sense of the Garden State” has helped when advising “clients on how the state's policy, legal and economic winds are blowing.”
Law360 hailed Riker for the state court rulings we scored over the past year, including on the energy and environmental fronts, particularly noting our representation of nuclear energy giant Holtec International and Renaissance At Schanck Road LLC, the operator of a shopping center.
“In those matters, a Superior Court judge determined that Holtec is entitled to a $26 million tax credit that a state agency had withheld, and an appellate panel found that Renaissance is not responsible for environmental cleanup expenses at the shopping center property,” the article said.
Co-Managing Partners Lance J. Kalik and Michael R. O’Donnell were interviewed for the article. "We are where we've always been, which is one of the bigger and leading firms in the state to handle New Jersey-focused matters when those arise," said Lance.
Mike noted that our environmental team is "a rock of our firm" and works closely with many of our other practice groups. Mike said of our collaborative approach, "That's the benefit of a firm like ours. We can bring all the practice areas to bear, and we work together, collegially and efficiently."
