Financial Times has named Orrick North America’s Most Innovative Law Firm in its 2017 report, recognizing the firm for eight different innovations. In addition, FT selected John Bautista as one of the 10 Most Innovative Individuals of the Year.
For an unprecedented second time, The American Lawyer selected Josh, the head of Orrick’s Supreme Court & Appellate practice, for this prestigious list. As AmLaw reported: “Whether for tech giants or financial execs, Joshua Rosenkranz is winning crucial battles and leaving a mark on the law.” The publication again dubbed Josh “the Defibrillator” for his ability to revive the toughest cases on appeal.
