The American Lawyer Litigation Department of the Year 2012 Finalist
14 February 2012
How do you identify the best of the best when it comes to litigation? If you are The American Lawyer, the leading source of news for the legal industry in the United States, you hold a biennial competition and invite the firms that comprise The Am Law 200 to report on their litigation activities over a 19-month period. Then, after examining the submissions to pick the strongest performers, you interview clients and opposing counsel to narrow the field even further. Finally, you invite a select few for face-to-face interviews to be certain that you have found the cream of the crop. After a vigorous, multi-month process, Mayer Brown is proud to announce that we have been named by The American Lawyer as one of the top six US litigation firms in their 2012 Litigation Department of the Year report. Our submission highlighted the significance of our victories (in terms of their financial and reputational stakes, and their impact on the legal and business landscapes), the breadth of our coverage, the creativity of our litigation strategies, and our inventive advocacy.
