Orrick ranks #5 nationwide on Law360’s inaugural Litigation Powerhouse list. The 2016 list ranks firms for their litigation wins and the new litigation matters they've been hired to work on in the past year, as well as the size of their practice.
Orrick's 450 litigators racked up a string of victories at trial, on appeal and before arbitral tribunals around the world. The firm’s litigators tried 18 cases over a 24-month period and secured a string of wins for clients, such as Kleiner Perkins, DIRECTV, Dish Network, Dow Agrosciences, a leading tech company (U.S.) and MobileIron, among others. Outside the US, Orrick handled some of the most closely watched cases in domestic courts, such as the front-page lawsuit known as L’Affaire Tapie in Paris, as well as some of the most significant international arbitration matters in Africa.
Earlier this year, The American Lawyer named Orrick among the top 10 litigation firms nationwide in its 2016 "Litigation Power Rankings." The publication also chose the firm as IP Litigation Department of the Year and listed us among the six finalists for Litigation Department of the Year in 2016.
