Six Dean Mead Attorneys Recognized for Legal Excellence by Chambers and Partners

Orlando, Fla. – Dean Mead has been ranked among the top Florida law firms in Chambers USA 2017 America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, an annual publication by Chambers and Partners. The rankings include six of the firm’s attorneys in the categories of Tax and State and Local Taxation. The attorneys receiving the prestigious recognition include:

Charles H. Egerton Tax Orlando
Stephen R. Looney Tax Orlando
Michael D. Minton Tax Fort Pierce
Robert S. Goldman State and Local Taxation Tallahassee
Mark E. Holcomb State and Local Taxation Tallahassee
William D. Townsend State and Local Taxation Tallahassee


Chambers USA honorees are selected on the basis of submissions put forward by legal practices, interviews during the course of research and the Chambers own database resources. Individual lawyers are ranked (in their practice-area(s)) on the basis of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service.

A law firm ranking relates to a department of the firm, not to the firm as a whole. These factors and considerations are judged: (a) by interviews with those active in the market – mainly clients (who can be law firms instructing other law firms) and other lawyers with whom they work; and (b) by assessing recent work done.

Internal meetings are held by researchers, deputy editors and editors to go through the research they have conducted and to compile and approve the ranking tables.
