National Litigation Publication Names Roy as Local Litigation Star

Burlington attorney Christopher D. Roy is one of only two attorneys in Vermont to be selected as a “local litigation star” for the Second Circuit by Benchmark Appellate Litigation, an annual publication focusing exclusively on litigation in the U.S.

The honorees in each state have been consistently recommended by peers and clients as reputable and effective litigators.

In the commentary, the publication states:

“Burlington-based Downs Rachlin Martin comes highly recommended by its peers as being one of the Green Mountain State’s premier litigation workshops. The firm is also championed for having one of Vermont’s most capable appellate attorneys, namely Christopher Roy. Roy focuses on all aspects of commercial and property-related litigation in both state and federal courts. He has represented clients in federal and state trial courts across Vermont, as well as before the Vermont Supreme Court, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the US District Court for Massachusetts.”

Roy graduated from Cornell Law School in 1989 and resides in Williston, Vt.
