Conn Maciel Carey LLP (CMC) is honored to announce that the firm has been recognized as one of only three national law firms ranked in Band 1 Nationwide for Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) Law. CMC is the only “boutique” firm among all of the law firms recognized.
The recognition comes from Chambers and Partners, an independent research company that delivers detailed rankings and insight into the world’s leading lawyers. This is the first year that Chambers has ranked the OSHA Law practice area.
Chambers’ researchers identified CMC as a “leading national boutique handling the full spectrum of labor and employment litigation with particular emphasis on workplace safety issues. The group…maintains a strong track record in complex OSHA inspections and enforcement matters.”
Among the client comments collected by Chambers about the firm, one stated that CMC’s OSHA Team “offers impressive expertise in federal- and state-level workplace safety laws, and has been especially active in recent months guiding clients through COVID-19 compliance…The firm is the real deal; it is a top OSHA firm.”
Additionally, two of CMC’s OSHA attorneys—Eric J. Conn, Chair of the firm’s national OSHA Practice, and Kate McMahon, an OSHA Partner in the firm’s Washington, DC office—were named among a short list of leading OSHA lawyers in the Nationwide OSHA Law Rankings. Individuals interviewed by Chambers about these attorneys reported that Eric “is a renowned practitioner with a wealth of experience representing employers in OSHA inspections, investigations and litigation,” and Kate “offers significant expertise in occupational safety and health and environmental law.”
“This ranking reflects CMC’s position as a leading OSHA firm with tremendous depth and talent,” said the firm’s Managing Partner, Kara Maciel. “It has been such a pleasure partnering with Eric and the OSHA Team to build the ideal platform for this critically important area of law.”
Eric added, “The law firm rankings by Chambers and Partners are the gold standard. We are just so proud that our OSHA Team has achieved the Band 1 ranking in the inaugural year that Chambers ranked the OSHA Law category. It speaks volumes about the quality and creativity of our OSHA attorneys across our five regional offices in Washington, DC; Chicago; San Francisco; Long Beach, California; and Columbus, Ohio.”
Kate commented, “We are especially grateful and deeply honored that our clients trust us with their most critical workplace safety issues, and had such gracious words to share about us. It is amazing to think that it was just eight years ago that CMC opened its doors, and already we have achieved this national recognition.”
