Elias Law Group Recognized as Top Firm for Political Law by Chambers USA

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Elias Law Group has been recognized as a top firm for Political Law by Chambers and Partners, publishers of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, achieving a Band 1 ranking in its first full year of eligibility as a firm. This recognition comes less than two years after 50 attorneys left the political law practice group at their previous firm to start Elias Law Group.  

Elias Law Group was one of just three firms nationwide to earn a “Band 1” ranking for Political Law, and five Elias Law Group attorneys earned individual recognition in this year’s Political Law Guide.  

In their review of the firm, Chambers researchers wrote that Elias Law Group is known for “boasting a deep bench of experienced practitioners able to advise on complex election law matters,” adding that “the firm offers particular prowess in voting rights and redistricting litigation and is well placed to assist Democratic campaigns and institutions, as well as nonprofit organizations.”  

“We are so proud to be recognized as a top firm for Political Law by Chambers USA,” said Elias Law Group Managing Partner Hannah Eaves. “This recognition is a testament to our immediate impact in service of the firm’s mission to help Democrats win, citizens vote, and progressives make change.” 

Five Elias Law Group partners earned individual recognition in this year’s nationwide Political Law rankings: 

Chambers Review: “Firm founding partner Marc Erik Elias is a highly regarded political law attorney who continues to be a popular choice for matters relating to voting rights. He also has considerable expertise in matters involving campaign finance law, redistricting and government ethics.” 

Chambers Review: “Ezra Reese is Elias Law Group's political law chair. He garners recognition for his political law practice. He advises nonprofits and trade associations on issues relating to tax law, lobbying and campaign finance.” 

Chambers Review: “Jonathan Berkon is noted for his knowledge of state and local election law. His client base includes individuals, political action committees and nonprofits.” 

Chambers Review: “Abha Khanna is a litigation partner in the firm's Seattle office. She draws particular praise for her redistricting expertise, and frequently represents nonprofits and political organizations at the trial and appellate levels.”
