Here is an excerpt from 2010 Chambers USA:
Corporate/Commercial: Kay Casto & Chaney is fast growing as a presence in the West Virginia corporate/commercial market. The firm covers transactional and regulatory matters relating to banking & finance, tax and insurance. "The firm has a real buzz about it and no matter what project you give its lawyers, they always deliver great results."
Booker has long been regarded as one of the deans of banking and finance in West Virginia. The decreased volume of transactional matters with which he has typically busied himself has brought his versatility to the fore; he has recently been turning his hand to business litigation, in which he is described as "superbly accomplished and masterful."
Tax lawyer Craig Kay's tremendous reputation is endorsed by many in the market thanks to his aptitude for a great variety of tax and business issues.
Labor and Employment: Kay Casto & Chaney provides advisory, training and litigation services for clients handling both union and HR-related issues. Healthcare and commercial facilities regularly call upon the firm, as do clients in the construction industry. "The team offers consistent quality and provides immediate responses to pressing labor and employment questions."
Stephen Weber is lauded for his "quick mind and uncommon knowledge of the law, which puts employees at ease when they're scared and gets terrific results." He is a generalist who covers labor and employment and is equally at home in the courtroom or the HR department.
Constance Weber is a tenacious younger litigator whose clients are impressed by her "incredibly astute mind and commitment to the cause."
Chambers USA covers all the major practice areas at a national level, as well as key specialties within each state. According to its website, "The rankings and editorial comment about attorneys are independent and objective. Inclusion in this section of the guide is based solely on the research team's findings. No one can buy their way in."
