Peter Bicks Named to Lawdragon's Leading Lawyers in America List

Lawdragon | July.10.2012

Commercial litigation partner Peter Bicks was named to Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Lawyers in America list. Peter is profiled by the publication, in which he discusses his expertise across a wide range of jurisdictions, his favorite case from his career thus far, why he chose to lead Orrick’s New York office and key lessons for aspiring trial lawyers.

"There are two lessons," says Bicks. "The first is that our job is to serve the interest of our clients no matter what, and to make sure they look good to a jury or judge, to the media, and to their peers. The second is to be yourself. I have had the great fortune of being around and going up against great trial lawyers so I have been able to see a wide range of effective styles and to then mesh them with my own personality. Don't try to imitate someone else in a way that is not who you are. Study the style and tactics of other great lawyers and pick and choose what works for you."
