Proskauer Rose LLP has announced its recognition in the new edition of Chambers USA, an annual directory of America's leading business lawyers. Forty-one Proskauer attorneys and 24 practice areas were included in this years edition of Chambers USA, widely acknowledged as one of the world's top arbiters of legal achievement. These rankings reflect a 30 percent increase from 2005 in the number of individual attorney rankings at the firm and a 25 percent increase in the number of practice rankings.
Proskauer's national sports law and ERISA litigation practices received Chambers' highest rankings, as did the firm's Boston-based private equity fund formation practice and its New York-based employment practice, widely considered one of the nation's best and the only New York employment practice ranked in the top tier by Chambers. Also receiving top-tier recognition were the firm's corporate/M&A, healthcare and false advertising practices, the latter of which is receiving recognition from Chambers for the first time. In addition, the firm's national wealth management practice was recognized for the first time, as were its New York-based general commercial litigation and Los Angeles-based employment defense practices.
Also recognized by Chambers, as they have been in years past, are Proskauer's Washington, DC and Boston-based intellectual property practices; Newark, New Jersey-based employment defense practice; and its New York-based bankruptcy/restructuring, employee benefits and executive compensation, environment, insurance dispute resolution, media and entertainment litigation, and real estate practices. Chambers' practice-based rankings reflect Proskauer's established and ever-growing prominence in these fields, based on the firm's handling of a wide range of matters throughout the year.
