Firms recognized for IP, products liability practices

By Rebecca Mayo, J.D.

Finnegan was recognized as one of the most feared law firms, a McGuireWoods partner was named Product Liability Attorney of the Year, and WilmerHale was recognized by LMG Life Sciences.

Finnegan. Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP was recognized as one of the "most feared law firms" in litigation by BTI Consulting Group. BTI Consulting Group’s 2021 Litigation Outlook Report analyzes litigation trends and the results are based on 240 in-depth interviews with top legal decision makers managing litigation. Finnegan’s litigation practice covers all aspects of IP disputes, including patents, trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights.

McGuireWoods. McGuireWoods partner Diane Flannery has been honored as Product Liability Attorney of the Year in the 2020 Americas Women in Business Law Awards. The awards are organized by Euromoney’s Legal Media Group to honor women lawyers and law firms for exemplary service and advancing diversity and inclusion in the profession. Flannery is an accomplished litigator and chair of McGuireWoods’ Products, Environmental & Mass Torts Litigation Department. She has served as lead counsel in a nationwide class action lawsuit alleging food contamination and fraudulent labeling, and as trial counsel in a class action against the tobacco industry, as well as serving as lead counsel or trial counsel on a number of MDL litigation actions and nationwide class actions.

WilmerHale. WilmerHale and 21 of its lawyers were recognized in the 2020 edition of LMG Life Sciences. The firm was just one of eight to receive the "life cycle" distinction, which recognizes firms with significant practices in nearly all areas covered by LMG Life Sciences. The firm was also recognized in the Finance and Corporate category for Corporate, Licensing & Collaboration, Mergers & Acquisitions, and Venture Capital, and in the Intellectual Property category for General Patent Litigation, Hatch-Waxman Patent Litigation, Patent Prosecution, and Patent Strategy & Management, in addition to being recognized in the Non-IP Litigation category for White-Collar/Government Investigations.
