The Legal 500 Names B&D Environmental Team of the Year for 2015
On October 14, 2015, The Legal 500 recognized Beveridge & Diamond as law firm winner in the environmental practice area at its 2015 Awards Dinner in New York City. Acknowledging the firm as “Environment Team of the Year,” Legal 500 said that “2014 saw B&D acting in some precedent-setting cases regarding biosolids: it gained a favorable decision from the Washington Court of Appeals disallowing a county ban on the application of biosolids to farmland, representing the amicus curiae in support of the Washington State Department of Ecology.”
The event took place at the Loeb Boathouse in New York's Central Park. John Kazanjian, New York Managing Principal, attended on behalf of the firm.
Earlier this year, Legal 500 ranked B&D as a top tier firm in the environment - transactional and regulatory category and as a leading firm in the environmental litigation category in its 2015 edition.
Legal 500 does not rank individuals but recognized 6 B&D attorneys as “key lawyers” in its write-up of the firm, including:
- Karen Hansen (Principal, Austin);
- Don Patterson (Principal, Washington, DC);
- Steve Richmond (Principal, Washington, DC);
