This firm has a leading reputation for high-quality work. While its roots are in Chicago, the Washington, DC team generates considerable praise, and heavy investment in the area in the Los Angeles office testifies to the firm's determination to grow the practice even further. Confirming its status as the place to go for heavyweight representation in disputes, the team was retained by Dow Chemical in connection with a series of price-fixing cases founded on allegations of cartel activity. Although the regulatory component of the practice may be less well known, big names such as Barr Pharmaceuticals rely on the team for its "tactical advice and powers of negotiation." The group's impressive caseload regularly features matters originating in the IP and private equity sectors. Tefft Smith is praised for his negotiation skills.
