The Legal 500 EMEA 2008 Confirms Squire Sanders' Position as Market Leader
LONDON, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Global law firm Squire, Sanders & Dempsey L.L.P. has received a glowing review across a range of offices and practice areas in the highly respected independent legal guide The Legal 500 EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) 2008. The publication employs a large team of journalists who conduct in-depth research, which forms a set of rankings and editorial analysis, reflecting the market as accurately as possible. The research includes interviews with peers (private practice lawyers and in-house counsel) as well as interviews with clients.
Squire Sanders is consistently recommended in banking & finance, M&A, dispute resolution, energy, real estate, competition and telecoms.
In Belgium, the firm was recommended in three EU regulatory categories (pharmaceuticals and bioscience, chemicals (REACH) and energy. The editorial commentary recognized the firm's "experience in clinical trials which is almost unparalleled."
The firm's team in the Czech Republic was acknowledged in six areas including "boasting a very strong disputes practice in the Czech Republic."
Squire Sanders' Hungary operation, which "advises on sizeable transactions, including instructions from Budapest Bank", was recommended in nine categories.
The team in Poland has "benefited significantly from its recent influx of lawyers from Baker & McKenzie," which brought with it strength in banking & finance, projects & energy, real estate and private equity.
In Russia, Squire Sanders has entered the real estate rankings following the hire of Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP real estate head Dmitry Kunitsa, who joined the firm with two associates. The move has "created a 'very strong practise' [according to one client] that spans finance, acquisitions and leasing."
The Slovak office has been commended for delivering "'immaculate' work
for clients in Slovakia ...
