Recognized with the California Lawyer's Attorney of the Year (CLAY) Award
February 23, 2007
Paul Hastings partner Dennis Ellis was named as California Lawyer's Attorney of the Year (CLAY) for his representation of the Chinese company New World TMT, which resulted in a $2.8 billion award. Utilizing Paul Hastings international network of attorneys during the New World legal proceedings, Dennis orchestrated an aggressive discovery strategy that ultimately unearthed evidence that convinced a judge to grant a rare and crippling motion that effectively led to a default judgment against the defendant. In 2006, Dennis also successfully represented General Electric (GE) Health and MRV Communications.
