Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, one of the world’s most prominent law firms, has again been recognized for excellence in a broad range of practice areas both nationally and regionally by Chambers USA 2011, publisher of one of the world’s leading guides to the legal profession. More than 20 Cadwalader practices were recognized and 47 lawyers, representing approximately half of the firm’s partners across all U.S. offices, were also singled out for their legal skills and experience.
Cadwalader’s practices garnered national recognition in the areas of Bankruptcy/Restructuring; Capital Markets: Derivatives, Securitization, and Structured Products; Corporate/M&A; Energy: Electricity Regulation & Litigation and Transactional; Energy: Oil & Gas Regulation & Litigation and Transactional; Financial Services Regulation; Tax: Corporate & Finance; and Transportation: Aviation. In New York, the firm was tapped in Bankruptcy/Restructuring; Corporate/M&A; Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation; Healthcare; Intellectual Property: Patent; Litigation: General Commercial and Securities; Real Estate Corporate and Finance; and Tax. The Antitrust and Bankruptcy/Restructuring practices in Washington also garnered honors.
Entry in the guide is based on market recommendation from interviews with lawyers, clients, and other professional bodies. Lawyers are judged based on criteria most valued by clients, such as technical expertise, business acumen, and prompt delivery.
“I am gratified that so many of our attorneys in so many different practice areas were recognized as leaders by Chambers USA,” said Chris White, Cadwalader’s Chairman. “We are committed to providing our clients with outstanding legal and business solutions, and their input into this process reflects out success in meeting their expectations.”
