NEW YORK, NEW YORK ─ JANUARY 20, 2011 ─ O’Melveny & Myers LLP’s White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations Practice recently was honored by Law360 as a White Collar Practice of the Year, along with just four other firms nationwide. In the Firm’s profile, published January 14, 2011, the publication highlighted the advantages that O’Melveny’s White Collar practice gives to its clients because of the large number of partners with vast prosecutorial experience. The article touted the group’s past government experience as the key to the unique behind-the-scenes knowledge they provide to clients. 

 

Law360 also referred to the group’s extensive work advising its corporate clients about internal investigations and the demand by clients for the group’s “In-House Counsel’s Guide to Conducting Internal Investigations,” which was published late last year and spearheaded by Firmwide Practice Group Leader Daniel Bookin.

 

The article ultimately concluded that what makes O’Melveny’s White Collar Practice a standout from all the other firms it considered was the cases it kept out of the headlines and the types of lawyers around which the Firm has built this practice.
