The International Law Office named Ron as the overall winner for the entire United States and the exclusive winner for Texas in the Employment and Labor category for its Client Choice awards, based on feedback provided by more than 2,000 in-house counsel.
The recognition focused on Ron’s ability to add real value to clients, with criteria including the quality of legal advice, value for money, commercial awareness, effective communication, billing transparency, response time, and use of technology.
Chambers USA 2018 stated: Ron Chapman is highly experienced in discrimination and harassment cases, as well as noncompete, retaliation and wage and hour disputes. Clients describe him as “an outstanding practitioner as well as a manager of relationships.”
Additionally, based on feedback from both in-house and outside counsel, Chambers USA proclaimed that Ron “is a regular name on high-stakes employment cases in Texas. He is ‘at the top of his game,’ according to his peers, and clients appreciate his ‘candid, frank advice, which makes it feel like you’re talking to a trusted counselor as opposed to a lawyer. He sees the bigger picture.’”
Ron has defended clients in over 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands and regularly provides counseling to help clients navigate both legal and practical considerations. Ron also has extensive appellate experience and has prevailed in appeals against both the EEOC and NLRB, in addition to many private litigants.
