The O'Melveny partners newly featured in the guide this year are Tancred Schiavoni (Insurance - National), Brad Butwin (Securities Litigation - National), Jeffrey Kilduff (Securities Litigation - DC), George Riley (CA), Brian Boyle (DC), and Brian Brooks (DC).  O'Melveny lawyers appearing for the second consecutive year are Seth Aronson (Securities Litigation - National), Dan Bookin (CA), Walter Dellinger (DC), Rich Goetz (Products Liability - National), Rich Parker (Antitrust - National), and Dan Petrocelli (General Commercial - National).


O'Melveny is recognized for the second consecutive year as a "leading firm" nationally, and as “recommended” in Washington, DC.  In California, the Firm moved up from “recommended” to “highly recommended,” and is newly listed as "recommended" in New York. The Firm's individual practice and lawyer recommendations have increased over the prior year by three and six, respectively.


The guide is distributed to Fortune 500 general counsel or litigation counsel, named in-house counsel at US investment banks, financial institutions, commercial banks and corporates, and partners at leading litigation firms in each state, for referral purposes.
