June 07, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LOS ANGELES—June 6, 2018—O’Melveny’s practices and lawyers were highly ranked in the 2018 edition of The Legal 500: United States, a leading guide to the US legal market. This year’s guide names 10 “leading” and six “next generation” lawyers from O’Melveny and ranks 35 of the firm’s practice areas among the best in the nation.

In its special focus on “Leading Trial Lawyers,” The Legal 500 once again highlighted O’Melveny litigation partner Daniel Petrocelli. The Legal 500 noted that his “impressive reputation allows him to frequently secure lead trial counsel position,” citing his work leading the team for President Donald Trump and Trump University in two class actions, and defending AT&T and Time Warner against the Department of Justice’s antitrust suit targeting their proposed merger.
