Environmental Boutique Firm Makes Splash in Law Firm Rankings

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - May 22, 2015) - Less than two years since it was founded, the boutique environmental law firm Kazmarek Mowrey Cloud Laseter LLP (KMCL) is making a splash in the major law firm rankings. Chambers USA has released its 2015 rankings, naming KMCL a “Band 1” firm in environmental law in Georgia. Chambers’ annual America’s Leading Lawyers for Business is the leading publication ranking business-oriented law firms in the U.S.

KMCL’s receipt of Chambers’ highest ranking comes on the heels of the firm being named Georgia’s “Best Environmental Boutique Law Firm” by Corporate America’s Legal Elite 2015. KMCL also recently received a 2015 “Tier 1” ranking for environmental litigation -- both nationally and in Atlanta -- from the prestigious U.S. News Best Law Firms.

Drawing on confidential input from client and peer sources, Chambers notes that KMCL has “taken the best people from a variety of areas and put them together.” Chambers named nine individual KMCL lawyers as leaders in the environmental practice, more than any other firm in the region.

“This further validates what we set out to do,” said KMCL’s Skip Kazmarek. “We are pleased that our formula of offering clients the most sophisticated service on a boutique platform has been so well-received in the market,” added Bob Mowrey.

Chambers identified nine KMCL attorneys as leading lawyers in the field, as follows:

Douglas Cloud – Environment – Georgia
Kipp Coddington – Climate Change – Nationwide and Global
Carol Geiger – Environment – Georgia
Richard Horder – Environment – Georgia
E.A. Skip Kazmarek – Environment – Georgia
Scott Laseter – Environment – Georgia
David Meezan – Environment – Georgia
Robert Mowrey – Environment – Georgia
C. Max Zygmont – Environment – Georgia

Chambers guides are published annually and distributed to general counsel of leading global and national businesses. Rankings within the guides are determined by a rigorous interview process between the Chambers research team and Fortune 100 general counsel, high-profile entrepreneurs, significant purchasers of legal services and law firms.

Kazmarek Mowrey Cloud Laseter LLP is a premier boutique environmental and energy law firm formed by former partners of Am-Law 100 firms having nearly 200 years of combined experience. KMCL serves clients nationwide from offices in Atlanta and Washington, D.C.
