Following on from his listing in Chambers Asia-Pacific earlier this year, the recently released Chambers Global 2016 rankings have also included Cooper Grace Ward lead litigation and dispute resolution partner Rocco Russo as one of the leading lawyers for the practice area of Dispute Resolution (Australia).
This is now the third consecutive year that Rocco has been included in the rankings by this leading global legal directory.
The global guide, which is published annually, is the result of an in-depth annual research process conducted by the largest research team of its kind.
The commentary released with this year’s rankings includes the following commentary about Rocco Russo:
One client, who would recommend him for any contentious matter, reports: “Rocco ran the entire process, provided independent advice, consistently took the emotion out of the dispute and ensured that our costs were kept to a minimum.”
Rocco is one of only three Brisbane-based lawyers included in the rankings in the Dispute Resolution category.
