Congratulations to Gammage & Burnham partners Joseph P. Richardson and Grady Gammage, Jr. for their recognition as two of the Top 100 Lawyers in Arizona. This list of exceptional lawyers is published annually by AZ Big Media and features a range of practicing attorneys from throughout the state.
Joseph Richardson is recognized in the areas of business organizations and commercial transactions. His practice is centered around representing both sellers and buyers in mergers, acquisitions and other entity-based transactions. He was recently recognized by Best Lawyers in America as “Lawyer of the Year” in Phoenix for 2019.
Gammage & Burnham partners Michael King, Cameron Artigue and Christopher Hering helped protect funding for stadiums and other sports and tourism-related ventures with a recent victory in the Arizona Supreme Court. (Saban Rent-a-Car v. Arizona Department of Revenue). This victory ends the long-running challenge (this litigation lasted 14 years) to the surcharges on car rentals that have funded such efforts for decades.
The challengers–a group of car-rental companies–initially persuaded the court that surcharges on car rentals violated an obscure provision in Arizona’s Constitution, which requires taxes related to the operation of motor vehicles to be expended on highways.
