Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, a global law firm based in Los Angeles, was named the best litigation firm in the United States in this month’s issue of The American Lawyer Magazine.
“Time and again in 2008-09, blue-chip clients in desperate straits have turned to Gibson Dunn lawyers to get them out of trouble at every stage, from subpoena to summary judgment to U.S. Supreme Court final appeal,” the magazine said of Gibson Dunn.
Also noteworthy, according to the magazine’s editors, is that “Gibson Dunn has also been a top choice for law firms in need of their own rescue, particularly in malpractice litigation.”
Among the firms highlights last year were helping Dole Food Company end its costly battle with Nicaraguan plaintiffs and defeating employment class actions for Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and United Parcel Service Inc.
In addition to naming Gibson Dunn “Litigation Department of the Year,” The American Lawyer also selected the firm as one of two finalists in its Labor & Employment Competition.
