Chambers & Partners, a prestigious global legal ranking firm based in London, has ranked partner Rocco Russo as a leading lawyer in dispute resolution within the Asia-Pacific region for the fourth consecutive year.
An independent team of 170 researchers based in London released the select list of leading individual lawyers and law firms for the Asia-Pacific region in January 2017 stating:
Rocco Russo of Cooper Grace Ward commands respect among clients and colleagues, who stress, among other factors, his meticulous preparation, “pragmatic and commercial approach” and “very strong track record of providing great advice which really stands up.”
Rocco is one of only three Brisbane-based lawyers to be recognised by the prestigious international rankings in the dispute resolution category, and the only lawyer from an independent standalone Brisbane firm. The ranking is determined following in-depth interviews of clients, peers and an assessment of recent work engagements.
Rocco leads Cooper Grace Ward’s litigation and dispute resolution group which has also been recognised for the first time. The strong litigation and dispute resolution group has been recognised due to its deep expertise in business litigation, corporate and commercial dispute resolution, building and construction disputes, insolvency and commissions of inquiry.
