Hanson Bridgett Partner Named "Lawyer of the Year"

Howard Ashcraft was named “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers® for Construction Litigation in San Francisco. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant.

Lawyers being honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments we conduct with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

Howard is a partner in the firm's San Francisco office and is the chair of the Firm's Construction Practice Group. Howard is a skilled litigator with tremendous experience in the construction industry. He is actively involved in developing new approaches to construction project delivery that will avoid many of the issues he has seen over the course of his career. In particular, he has worked as a steering committee member and legal and risk chair of the AIACC's interdisciplinary taskforce on Integrated Project Delivery.

Hanson Bridgett is a law firm with more than 150 attorneys in offices in San Francisco, Sacramento, the North Bay, Silicon Valley and the East Bay. Serving clients since 1958, we are well known in Northern California and have earned a national reputation in many of our practice areas.

Our diverse client list includes large national and global companies as well as many governmental entities, regional businesses and individuals. While we keep true to our California roots, our work increasingly takes us across state and national borders.
