Chambers & Partners, a globally respected attorney research company, has once again ranked Horvitz & Levy in Band 1 for California appellate litigation. Chambers describes Horvitz & Levy as a "highly regarded appellate boutique with outstanding strengths in civil disputes, making regular appearances before the Ninth Circuit and the California Supreme Court."

Chambers reported our firm as "specialists in appeals and one of the best both in California and nationwide" and had high praise for three individually ranked Horvitz & Levy partners (David Axelrad, Lisa Perrochet, John Taylor):

"David Axelrad is a highly regarded appellate practitioner and a veteran of the state courts of appeal, with particular expertise in toxic tort and personal injury matters." "He's not just smart and responsive, but kind and helpful."

"Lisa Perrochet assists her clients with major appeals that touch on insurance coverage, liability and punitive damages, both in California and across a number of domestic jurisdictions." "Lisa is able to take complex issues and boil them down into simple well thought-out briefings." 

"John Taylor is well versed in handling an array of significant appellate mandates in state and federal courts. He acts for clients in disputes spanning a wide range of sectors." "John writes very well."

Additionally, Chambers increased Horvitz & Levy's ranking in the California insurance insurer category to Band 2. The report details the highly regarded ability of the firm and individually ranked attorney, Mitchell Tilner: "They are great strategists insofar as they give us candid and accurate assessments of odds of success on appeals so we can make meaningful decisions." "Mitchell Tilner is a recognized name in the market for his unrivaled appellate experience in insurance cases. His work includes matters related to major data privacy, business interruption, and personal injury claims."
