Kanji & Katzen Recognized for Excellence in Representing Tribes

Chambers USA’s rankings for 2019 have been released and Kanji & Katzen, P.L.L.C. and its attorneys once again received stellar rankings.

As a firm, the team ranked as a top tier (Band 1) Indian law firm, sharing this honor with only three other firms in the United States.  The firm is praised for its ability to provide “such a strong marriage of Indian law and appellate expertise.  Their litigation expertise is very hard to match.”  Chambers quotes clients as attesting that “the team as a whole is first-rate” with “dedication, good judgment, superior writing and negotiation skills.”  A peer lawyer states that Kanji & Katzen attorneys “reach a level of excellence that few others have time for.  They are phenomenal lawyers.”

Founding Member, Riyaz Kanji, a “superb strategist and excellent lawyer,” is recognized as the only “Star Individual” among Indian law practitioners in the United States.  His peers describe him as “the leading Indian lawyer in the country” and as “a real thought leader in this area.”  Others note that “[h]e combines a deep knowledge of Indian law with a keen sense of how to craft a winning appellate argument.  He is relentless in pursuit of his client’s interest, but manages to keep an even keel.  Nothing ruffles him.”

Chambers USA also ranks Cory Albright as among the best Indian law practitioners in the United States and describes him as “a really strong writer” and “very good at the tactical and strategic elements of a case.”

All of the attorneys at Kanji & Katzen bring a commitment to excellence and creativity, and work tirelessly on behalf of our clients.  We are honored to be recognized by Chambers USA and to have the privilege of serving Indian nations and tribes on issues of vital importance.
