Chambers USA highlights Manhattan’s leading business litigation firms and individuals within its New York Litigation: General Commercial coverage. Preeminent litigators are recognized in across four numerical bands, with the elite singled out as Stars and Eminent Practitioners. The junior side of the bench is included within the Up-and-Coming, Associates-to-Watch and Star Associates designations. Powerhouse firms such as Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP are singled out in the Elite firms’ table, while the Highly Regarded table houses strong performers such as Jones Day and Friedman Kaplan Seiler & Adelman LLP.
Those firms and individuals ranked in the New York General Commercial Litigation tables have secured their positions through consistently demonstrating their prowess in complex business disputes. All aspects of commercial proceedings before state and federal courts are considered, including pretrial motions practice, trial and appeal. While definitions of commercial disputes may vary, Chambers and Partners is seeking out litigators with proven expertise in representing business entities in high-stakes civil disputes. Litigation runs through many of Chambers’ tables, and so IP, antitrust and bankruptcy litigators are recognized in separate tables within New York. Likewise, prominent securities defense and plaintiff-side firms can be found in standalone New York Litigation: Securities tables. Chambers and Partners shines a separate light again on the criminal defense Bar within its New York Litigation: White-Collar Crime and Government Investigations coverage.
