Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, one of the world’s leading advisors to corporations and financial institutions, is pleased to announce that James P. Carroll and Scott A. Cammarn have been named “Lawyers of the Year” in the 2014 edition of The Best Lawyers in America. This recognition is given to only a single lawyer per practice and metropolitan area.
James Carroll, co-managing partner of Cadwalader's Charlotte office, is featured as a Lawyer of the Year in the Banking and Finance Law category. His practice is concentrated in the areas of real estate finance and securitization.
Scott Cammarn, a partner in the firm’s Charlotte office, is recognized as a Lawyer of the Year in Financial Services Regulation Law. He focuses on regulatory matters, mergers and acquisitions, legislation and lobbying, transactions, and training. This is his third Lawyer of the Year award.
Attorneys are selected as Lawyers of the Year based on particularly impressive voting averages received in the peer-review assessments, which focus on ability, professionalism and integrity.
“This recognition affirms the reputation we continue to establish among our clients and peers,” said Chris White, Cadwalader’s Chairman. “These honors reflect our commitment to providing insightful legal solutions.”
The 2014 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America includes a total of 44 Cadwalader attorneys across 31 practice areas. Inclusion in the guide is based on a peer-review process in which approximately 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas.
