FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES—June 6, 2019—O’Melveny’s leading practices and lawyers have been highly ranked in the 2019 edition of The Legal 500: United States, a guide to the US legal market.
This year’s guide ranks the firm in 40 designated practice areas and recognizes 19 individuals as “leading” or “next generation” lawyers.
The Legal 500 defines “leading” lawyers as those viewed as “stand out partners.” Its designation of “next generation” lawyers recognizes those viewed as “up-and-coming” associates and counsel.
In its special feature on “Leading Trial Lawyers,” The Legal 500 once again highlighted Daniel Petrocelli, Chair of O’Melveny’s Trial Practice Committee. The Legal 500 called Petrocelli “one of the best litigators around,” noting his work representing 20th Century Fox in a claim against Netflix, among other high-profile clients.
The Legal 500 series provides independent commentary on leading law firms and lawyers in more than 90 countries. Rankings are based on feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers, and a team of researchers who have unrivaled experience in the legal market.
