The American Lawyer named Paul Hastings its Transatlantic IP Team of the Year at the 2018 Transatlantic Legal Awards. These awards consider the top legal work between the U.S. and the U.K. and European legal markets, recognizing law firms for “excellence in handling transatlantic matters across the key areas of corporate, finance, and disputes, as well as highlighting law firm innovation, commitment to pro bono, outstanding transatlantic strategy, and in-house leaders.”
The winners were announced at a gala dinner in London on June 14, 2018, jointly hosted by The American Lawyer and Legal Week. The judging panel of American Lawyer Media journalists was led by Georgina Stanley and Gina Passarella, editors-in-chief of Legal Week and The American Lawyer.
The practice was honored with Bruce Wexler, Eric Dittmann, and Isaac Ashkenazi leading a team in a major pharmaceutical litigation through fact, expert and Markman phases, and obtaining six walk-away consent judgments.
Previously, Bruce Wexler, chair of Paul Hastings’ Life Sciences practice, was named The American Lawyer’s Transatlantic Lawyer of the Year: Intellectual Property in 2016, recognized for significant wins on behalf of Merck and Eli Lilly.
