Larkin Hoffman was ranked highly in the 2017 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, an annual guide identifying the top attorneys and firms in the United States. In this year’s rankings, the publication recognized Larkin Hoffman for its franchise and real estate practices and named four of the firm’s attorneys as notable practitioners.

Real Estate
Chambers noted that Larkin Hoffman’s real estate practice is “recognized for its strength in zoning and land use, evidenced by its frequent involvement in cutting-edge projects across the region.” Peter Coyle was recognized in real estate for his zoning and land use practice. The publication quoted clients who describe Peter as "very knowledgeable on governmental entitlements" as well as "an effective advocate" and an attorney who can "help advance funding and real estate efforts, whether at a state or local level." Also in the real estate category, Chambers quoted clients of Tim Stoltman who said, “We’ve appreciated his in-depth knowledge of our business and his ability to apply that to the transactions that he works on. We rely heavily on him and he is responsive, with great attention to detail.”

The publication ranked Larkin Hoffman among the best firms in the nation in 2017 for its franchise practice. The franchise team was called “the most impressive transactional team in the US,” as reported by industry sources contacted by Chambers. Chuck Modell, who has been ranked nationally for ten consecutive years, was described by Chambers as “vastly experienced in all aspects of franchise transactional matters” and by clients as "a very smart lawyer and trusted adviser." Joe Fittante, who has been nationally ranked by the publication for nine years, is regarded by a client interviewed by the publication as “a great, smart young lawyer with excellent clients and a really good style of personal interaction.”
