Three Orrick Litigators Named BTI Client Service All-Stars


Congratulations to Orrick partners Josh Rosenkranz, Morty Dubin, and Eric Shumsky on being named BTI Client Service All-Stars. Josh was named to the list for the fifth consecutive year, while Morty and Eric are both new additions to the list.

The leader of our Supreme Court & Appellate team, Josh was recently named Litigator of the Week by The American Lawyer for the fifth time after a big win in the Federal Circuit on behalf of our client Oracle in the ongoing battle over Google’s use of Oracle’s Java software code in the Android operating system. The American Lawyer has also honored Josh twice as Litigator of the Year.

A partner in our Mass Torts & Product Liability team, Morty recently secured a complete defense verdict for client Johnson & Johnson in the nation’s first trial involving claims that asbestos in the company’s baby powder caused mesothelioma. The win was named one of the Top Defense Verdicts of 2017 by the Daily Journal.

A partner in our Supreme Court & Appellate team, Eric recently argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in Hughes v. United States, which addresses a unique issue concerning how the lower courts resolve legal matters when the Supreme Court itself has been divided in its precedent. Eric also recently led the Orrick appellate team that played a key role in an important California Supreme Court win involving the bankruptcy of the Heller Ehrman law firm.

BTI’s list is an independently researched, client-driven ranking of attorneys’ client service. The results are based on more than 350 in-depth, independent interviews with top legal decision makers at leading companies.
