Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution
It was recently announced that Gammage & Burnham PLC is nationally ranked in eight practice areas and regionally ranked in 18 practice areas. The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process, and Best Lawyers is the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession.
According to Best Lawyers, a tier designation reflects a high level of respect a firm has earned among other lawyers and clients for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity. There are three tier levels, with one being the highest. Gammage & Burnham received first-tier rankings among firms in the Phoenix metro area for ten practice areas: Administrative/Regulatory Law; Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law; Business Organizations (including LLCs and Partnerships); Commercial Litigation; Construction Law; Health Care Law; Land Use & Zoning Law; Litigation – Construction; Litigation – Land Use & Zoning; Litigation – Real Estate; Real Estate Law; and Securities Regulation.
After many years, Gammage & Burnham client Cahava Springs Corp. received approval to move forward with its Cave Creek Cahava Springs project. The 1,000-acre community with Frank Lloyd Wright influences will have 230 homes and will be developed on one of the last large developable parcels in Cave Creek.
Our team of land use, real estate, and litigation attorneys have worked closely with Cahava Springs developers Mark Stapp and Dennis Mathisen on this project and we are pleased to see this project moving forward.

Gammage & Burnham has been hired to represent the Maricopa County Stadium District in connection with its dispute with the Arizona Diamondbacks and the AZPB Limited Partnership. The firm will be joined in this representation by John Williams of Williams Lopatto PLLC of Washington, DC.
Litigation partner Greg Gnepper recently represented a California company in litigation in Arizona. As part of a dispute over invoices, the defendant had seized a piece of equipment from the client’s premises. Greg sought and obtained a preliminary injunction that prevented the defendant from transferring, encumbering, or even using the equipment. After a full evidentiary hearing, the court sided with our client and determined that the defendant’s position lacked merit. Our client was ecstatic with this decision.
