The National Law Journal Names Olshan to “Midsize Hot List”
NEW YORK, April 30, 2012 -- Olshan has been selected by The National Law Journal for its “2012 Midsize Hot List” of the top 20 midsize law firms in the U.S. The “Hot List” honors firms for spotting and exploiting legal trends that deliver results at prices clients can actually afford, and for recruiting and retaining attorneys who work well together and serve their clients for the long haul.
“The National Law Journal has recognized what we at Olshan have known since our firm’s inception – midsize law firms can compete and win legal services,” said name partner Robert Frome. “We have a good culture,” Frome said. “That’s why clients stay here. That’s why lawyers stay here.”
Olshan, known also for its Activist Investor, M&A and Corporate Finance practices, was recognized by NLJ editors for its major litigation victories. Partners Kyle Bisceglie and Herbert Ross were lead counsel for Atari S.A., representing the video game maker in a dispute with Hasbro Inc. over licensing of the toy maker’s Dungeons & Dragons brand. Olshan defended hedge fund Accipiter Life Sciences Fund II (QP) L.P. in a suit brought by an investor, which was finally dismissed. Partners Thomas Fleming and Herbert Ross were lead counsel for Accipiter. NLJ also noted that a leading Advertising, Marketing and Promotions group joined Olshan in 2011.
