Weil was one of just eleven firms nationwide that received an Honorable Mention in the General Litigation category in The American Lawyer’s “Litigation Department of the Year” competition for 2020 – the second consecutive time the Firm has placed in the publication’s biennial competition.
As the publication noted, “[t]hese law firms delivered reliable results, breaking new ground when their clients needed it most.” In a profile on Weil’s accomplishments over the past two years, The American Lawyer highlighted cases, such as our defense jury verdict for C&S Wholesale Grocers in an antitrust MDL that erased several hundred million dollars sought in treble damages, and our pro bono work for Mexican-American students in Arizona that successfully challenged the enactment and enforcement of an Arizona state statute designed to eliminate Mexican-American Studies courses in Tucson public schools.
Weil has been recognized as a Finalist for this category in 2004 and 2010, and as an Honorable Mention in 2006, 2008, 2012 and 2018.
