In The National Law Journal issue published this month, Ervin Cohen & Jessup Co-Managing Partner Barry MacNaughton was featured by Martindale-Hubbell’s® AV Preeminent as one of its Top Rated Lawyers. The list, according to the publication, includes those lawyers “who have demonstrated leadership qualities” and “have achieved the AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating, the highest rating in legal ability and ethical standards.”
MacNaughton, a Partner in the firm’s Litigation and Construction and Environmental practices, was recognized by the publication as having “gone the distance to assert his clients' rights throughout his nearly 40-year career. His trial and negotiating skills act together to get his clients the best results.” The publication goes on to mention “MacNaughton secured a more than $90 million verdict for an investment firm defrauded on tenant performance in its shopping center acquisition from a strip mall developer. As lead trial counsel, MacNaughton held the developer accountable through to verdict, securing one of the largest verdicts in Los Angeles County in several years.”
MacNaughton’s dedication to clients covers a range of business conflicts—from contract disputes, claims involving real estate, trade secret and unfair competition litigation to corporate governance and insurance bad faith and coverage litigation. Working in courts and alternative dispute forums in the West and across the United States, MacNaughton has pursued and defended claims involving construction close outs, construction defect, environmental liability and specific performance as well as disputes over real estate partnerships, purchases and sales.
Last month, the Los Angeles Business Journal recognized MacNaughton among its 2019 "Top Litigators.”
