Cadwalader’s Global Litigation Group has been profiled by Lawdragon for its strategic growth over the past several years, including the recent recruitment from Boies Schiller of nationally acclaimed trial lawyer Nicholas Gravante and Philip Iovieno, Karen Dyer and Lawrence Brandman. Mark Grider, former U.S. deputy associate attorney general, also recently joined to lead the firm’s Crisis Management and Congressional Investigations Practice.
In the article, Cadwalader Managing Partner Pat Quinn discusses the firm’s key steps to expand its litigation capabilities, with a particular focus on strategic lateral hiring and internal promotions, to become a destination practice for clients’ most critical litigation needs. In addition to such growth, Quinn also underscores the greater integration among the practice’s various teams (antitrust, white collar, securities, trial and intellectual property) that has occurred under the leadership of Global Litigation Group chair Jason Halper, who rejoined Cadwalader in 2016. Quinn explains that this unified approach is important to clients who may, for instance, require representation in both white collar and civil litigation matters.
The article also details a “Growing the Practice” timeline of Cadwalader’s litigation team expansion since 2015.
