Chambers And Partners Recognizes Tydings And Two of Its Partners -- Alan Grochal and Lawrence Quinn -- As Leaders In The Legal Profession

Tydings is pleased to announce that Chambers and Partners has again ranked the firm in the 2015 edition of Chambers USA, its list of leading firms and lawyers in bankruptcy/restructuring and labor & employment.

In addition to the firm, Chambers recognizes two of the firm’s partners:  Alan M. Grochal for his bankruptcy/restructuring practice as well as Lawrence J. Quinn for his labor and employment practice.


This is the third consecutive year Chambers has ranked the firm’s bankruptcy/restructuring practice.  Its editors comment that Tydings is an “…efficient team with expertise across the bankruptcy field…”  Sources interviewed by Chambers had this to say about Alan Grochal and the firm, “We have been so impressed with Tydings; we no longer use other firms.”

Mr. Grochal has more than thirty-five years of experience in bankruptcy and restructuring matters, including litigation.  He is the chair of the firm’s creditors’ rights/bankruptcy department.  In addition to his bankruptcy litigation practice, Mr. Grochal is also equally experienced in out-of-court workouts.

Labor & Employment

The firm’s labor & employment practice and Lawrence Quinn have been recognized previously by Chambers.  According to Chambers’ editors and sources, “Mr. Quinn is hailed for his ‘efficient, straightforward, practical and hard-working approach.’”

Mr. Quinn is a member of the firm’s Management Committee and has defended employers in employment litigation claims for more than 25 years.

Bill Carrier, the firm’s managing partner, believes this recognition reflects the firm’s longstanding reputation and its attorneys’ experience.  He said, “Tydings is guided by the premise that lawyers must be trusted counsel and skilled advocates.  We are gratified to have that acknowledged by Chambers.”

Chambers USA ranks the leading lawyers throughout America.  The research is in-depth and client focused.  The guide is used by top companies and organizations worldwide as well as firms in all states for referral purposes.

Tydings is a Maryland-based law firm serving clients throughout the mid-Atlantic region.  The firm provides legal services in a variety of areas, including commercial litigation, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, employment law, business, corporate and tax, intellectual property, real estate, estates and trusts, and family law.
