Benchmark Litigation 2013: The Definitive Guide to America’s Leading Litigation Firms and Attorneys has once again recognized the firm’s litigation group in its 2013 edition. The firm garnered National Rankings in Antitrust, Bankruptcy, General Commercial, Intellectual Property, and Securities. The firm was noted for its “…historic strength in general commercial and securities litigation, with companies seeking its attorneys to handle some of the most complex financial litigation they encounter.”
Several of the firm’s partners were also cited as “stars” in both Washington, DC and New York.
Gregory Markel and Louis Solomon, Co-Chairmen of the 180-lawyer department, and partners George Davis (bankruptcy litigation), Jason Halper (commercial litigation), Christopher Hughes (intellectual property), Peter Moll (antitrust litigation), and Charles (“Rick”) Rule (antitrust litigation) all achieved national “litigation star” status in their respective areas of practice. These national honors identify attorneys who have displayed the ability to consistently handle complex, high-stakes cases in multiple jurisdictions and who are consistently recommended within the U.S. business and legal communities for the quality of their trial work. According to the Guide, a client notes that “Cadwalader was selected based upon their reputation as seasoned litigators, with expertise in corporate governance and securities.”
As a “highly recommended” New York firm, Cadwalader is considered to be among the dominant firms in the jurisdiction. Consistently described as highly reputable and effective litigators, Greg Markel was selected as a “local litigation star” for antitrust, insurance, and commercial and securities litigation; Christopher Hughes for intellectual property; Jason Halper for bankruptcy, commercial and securities litigation, and insurance; and Lou Solomon for antitrust, commercial and securities litigation, intellectual property, and international arbitration.
In Washington, Peter Moll and Rick Rule were both selected as “local litigation stars” for their antitrust work; Lou Solomon for antitrust, commercial and securities litigation, insurance, and intellectual property; and Brad Bondi scored a “future star” recognition.
