TUCKER & Cowen has blitzed the latest Doyle's Guide rankings, with three partners being singled out.
Richard Cowen, David Tucker (pictured left) and David Schwarz have bolstered the Adelaide Street firm's Tier 1 ranking for Insolvency.
Founding partner Tucker says the appraisal reaffirms his team is on the right track, and adds to other recommendation the firm has earned for its Litigation practice.
"We are all honoured to receive these awards which reaffirm the respected reputation we have built as the preeminent boutique firm for litigation and insolvency in Queensland," says Tucker.
"When Justin Marschke (pictured right) joined us his success had already been recognised by repeated rankings as 'an outstanding litigation lawyer' in the Asia Pacific Legal 500, AFR Best Lawyers and Doyle's Guide.
"Justin has again been ranked as one of Australia's Best Lawyers for litigation by Best Lawyers® International 2016 as published in the Australian Financial Review on 10 April 2015 as he has been since 2012."
"Working together we have achieved even more success in big ticket litigation and high profile insolvencies recognised throughout the world by clients and peers alike."
Tucker & Cowen's clients include Linfox, Sandvik, Vale, Armaguard, Press Metal Aluminium, Vita Group Limited, a number of other public companies and some of the country's top insolvency practitioners.
The practice's insolvency matters that have contributed to this recognition include LM Investment Management, Equititrust and Robins Kitchens, as well as some of the largest commercial litigation currently before the Courts in Australia concerning everything from coal seam gas assets, petroleum tenements, coal mining royalties and the 2011 Queensland floods to international conflicts of laws defences.
Tucker & Cowen is currently acting for Management Investments Limited & ORS on an ongoing case against the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). The firm anticipates the judgment, expected this year, will have far-reaching implications concerning unsettled law about what conditions are relevant in the situation of Responsible Entity.
