Upon hearing of the Chambers’ recognition, Ms. Zucker said: “It is a great honor to be recognized by Chambers USA and it is gratifying to think that clients – and maybe even a few adversaries – respect what I do as I an attorney in grappling with the situations in which my clients find themselves and helping them either navigate the litigation process successfully or resolve disputes in a way that achieves their goals.”
