Chambers, a leading legal industry rankings organization, recognized Am Law 100 Firm Polsinelli Shareholders Joyce Mazero and Iliana L. Peters in its 2022 Chambers Global rankings with top industry recognitions. Mazero earned recognition as a Global Market Leader in the Global portion of the guide for Franchising, while Peters received recognition in the USA section for Privacy & Data Security in Healthcare.
Chambers rankings are based on several factors, including information obtained from client interviews, submissions put forward by law firms, as well as Chambers’ own database resources. Individual attorneys are ranked on the basis of their legal knowledge and experience, ability, effectiveness and client-service in their respective practice areas.
As co-chair of Polsinelli’s Global Franchise & Supply Network Practice and a 14-year recipient of Chambers Global Franchising recognition, Mazero represents national and global product and service-based companies, structuring franchise and distribution networks, purchasing cooperatives and forming strategic alliances on behalf of clients. Pulling from her deep bench of experience in litigation and business transactions, she works to maximize competitive advantages in supply chains, leverage international relationships to increase client capital and expand opportunities and foster value among franchisors, franchisees and suppliers.
Improving upon her 2021 Chambers Global “Up and Coming” recognition in Privacy & Data Security: Healthcare, Peters is now recognized as a top healthcare privacy & data security attorney in the USA. Peters’ recognition derives from her focus on data privacy and security, particularly with regard to HIPAA, the HITECH Act, the 21st Century Cures Act, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), FERPA, the Privacy Act, state law data privacy and security requirements, and emerging cyber threats to data. She works closely with her clients on complicated compliance questions, incident response, investigations, and training to protect data and avoid legal risk and legal liability, both at the state and federal level.
The rankings in Chambers Global come prior to Chambers USA’s published rankings. Chambers USA ranks the top lawyers and law firms across the country by assessing the firm’s work and opinions from external market sources, with an emphasis on client feedback. In 2021, 69 Polsinelli attorneys and 14 different practice areas were recognized across nearly all of the firm’s geographic locations nationwide.
