Lawyers in more than 20 areas of practice at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, one of the world’s most prominent legal advisors to leading corporations and financial institutions, were named in the 2012 metropolitan New York edition of Super Lawyers. The publication lists outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement as well as rising stars.

The Cadwalader attorneys chosen by Super Lawyers (and their practice areas) are \ Fredric Altschuler (Real Estate); Louis Bevilacqua (Mergers & Acquisitions, Securities & Corporate Finance); Michael Gambro (Securities & Corporate Finance, Business/Corporate); Steven Herman (Real Estate, Banking); Jonathan Hoff (Securities Litigation, Business Litigation, Corporate Governance & Compliance);  Christopher Hughes (Intellectual Property Litigation, Intellectual Property); William McInerney (Real Estate); Patrick Quinn (Securities & Corporate Finance, Real Estate); Lary Stromfeld (Securities & Corporate Finance, Bonds/Government Finance); and Linda Swartz (Tax, Mergers & Acquisitions, Bankruptcy & Creditor/Debtor Rights).

Those tapped by Super Lawyers represent only 5% of metropolitan New York-area attorneys. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations, all of which result in a diverse listing of the top attorneys in each state. Lawyers are also asked to nominate Rising Stars, the best attorneys who are 40 or under or who have been practicing for 10 years or less, who they have personally observed in action — whether as opposing counsel or co-counsel, or through other firsthand courtroom observation.
