Miami, FL – Bilzin Sumberg is pleased to announce that Chambers and Partners, one of the most prestigious legal listings in the world, recognized 22 Bilzin Sumberg lawyers in its 2012 edition of leading law firms and lawyers in the United States. Chambers USA ranks preeminence in key practice areas and achievements within the last year, considering complexity of work, firm growth and client service.
