Shearman & Sterling’s White Collar Practice Recognized as Law360 Practice Group of the Year

Shearman & Sterling’s white collar practice has been selected as one of six Law360 White Collar Practice Groups of the Year for 2015. This is the second time in three years that the firm has received this accolade.

This award honors those practice groups that achieved the most significant white collar victories from October 1, 2014 to October 1, 2015. Now in its sixth year, the Practice Group of the Year series drew 730 submissions in 2015, and winners were selected for the size, complexity and significance of the litigation work. This accolade reflects the firm’s successful representation of Todd Newman in his insider trading case among other high stakes matters throughout the past year.

“We are delighted and honored that our team has been recognized for this award,” said Adam Hakki, global head of the firm’s Litigation Group. “Our practice is top-notch, and its success and growth is a testament to the reputation and expertise of our lawyers.”
