Chambers & Partners recognized Oles Morrison Rinker & Baker in its annual Chambers USA Guide as a leading Washington firm in the area of construction law. This is the first year Chambers & Partners has recognized and ranked the practice of construction law in the state of Washington. Individual attorneys Sam Baker and Michael Geraghty were also recognized for their outstanding legal contributions.

Chambers & Partners has a staff of more than 200 full-time researchers who develop rankings of attorneys and practice areas based on written submissions provided by law firms, telephone interviews with clients and lawyers, and other resources. Inclusion in the guide is based solely on the research team’s findings.

Throughout Sam’s distinguished career, he has represented clients in transactions with public and federal agencies, as well as private entities. He frequently appears in state and federal courts, and represents clients in arbitration and mediation.

Michael Geraghty, partner in the Anchorage office, was named a Recognized Practitioner by Chambers USA in the Alaska Litigation: Construction category. Former Attorney General for the state of Alaska, Geraghty has been providing legal counsel to organizations impacting Alaska’s growth and history for more than 35 years.
