Hicks Thomas is ranked by Chambers USA for 2022, earning this prestigious listing once again for the firm’s impressive commercial litigation work. John B. Thomas and Robin Harrison have also earned repeat individual honors as notable practitioners in commercial litigation.
Chambers is perhaps the most prestigious ranking service for business lawyers. Annual firm rankings are made through a rigorous process that begins with peer and client interviews, followed by comprehensive research and review by Chambers analysts.
"Hicks Thomas handles each twist and turn in the case thoughtfully and intelligently," one client told researchers.
"The team as a whole works hard, aggressively represents their clients and isn’t afraid to take risks where appropriate. They're willing to take charge in litigation but keep clients in the loop and seek guidance where necessary," another interview subject said.
Chambers wrote that “John Thomas has a strong track record representing clients in complex disputes, with experience across employment, insurance and environmental issues, among others.”
One client said Mr. Thomas “has a good sense of how the commercial world works and is very helpful in guiding actions before and during litigation."
"He is highly responsive and looks for creative approaches and solutions,” another said. “He also stays abreast of current conditions and developments within the company and our industry as a whole."
Mr. Harrison was called “a strong choice to handle high-stakes commercial disputes, including intellectual property and breach of contract lawsuits.”
"Robin has a high level of capability. He is smart and a hard worker, and he knows what he is doing," said one of those interviewed.
"He is a very talented and well-regarded lawyer," said another.
