In addition, the firm was ranked for excellence in three of its practice areas: Bankruptcy/Restructuring, Chancery, and Intellectual Property.
Ashby & Geddes’ Bankruptcy/Restructuring practice is “[c]ommended for its debtor and creditor expertise,” while head of the group, Bill Bowden, is praised for his “intrinsic knowledge of how to deal effectively with a situation.”
The firm’s Chancery practice shows an “[i]mpressive breadth and depth of expertise in corporate litigation,” according to Chambers, and the group’s “responsiveness is outstanding.”
Chambers describes Ashby & Geddes as a “[r]espected litigation boutique” for its Intellectual Property practice, with its lawyers being “routinely used as Delaware counsel in high-profile disputes.” Steve Balick is described as a “phenomenal attorney,” and John Day is noted as going “above and beyond to get the job done and protect his clients’ interests.”
