For the 14th consecutive year, Steven S. Kaufman, managing member of Kaufman & Company, has achieved a prestigious Band 2 ranking by Chambers and Partners. Chambers USA 2019 places Kaufman among the top 16 attorneys in Ohio for General Commercial Litigation.
In addition to reviewing case work, Chambers’ research team conducts in-depth, one-on-one interviews year-round with clients and attorneys to assess each lawyer’s technical legal abilities, professional conduct, client service, commercial acumen, diligence and commitment. Interviewees agreed that Kaufman is “extraordinarily insightful and pragmatic.” In past years, he has also received praise including, “Steve is a warrior when he needs to be, and a very astute and effective trial lawyer” and “unquestionably a force to be reckoned with.”
Chambers added in its assessment that Kaufman is “well regarded for his experience representing a wide range of leading clients on complex commercial disputes. He is particularly noted for his expertise in fraud allegations, legal malpractice and trade secret disputes.” Kaufman’s Band 2 ranking is the second-highest placement possible in a system that includes Band 1 through Band 4.
London-based Chambers and Partners has been ranking the world’s leading lawyers since 1990. Their objective assessments are considered the gold standard of the legal industry.
