New York (October 4, 2019) – International law firm Proskauer is recognized by Forbes in its inaugural list of “America’s Top Corporate Law Firms.” Proskauer is one of three law firms which are recommended for Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits.
In this first-ever list, Forbes highlights Proskauer’s practices and recent matters:
“In addition to being recognized for its product liability defense, M&A and bankruptcy work, Proskauer has a marquee sports practice that advises leagues, teams and owners, media companies and private equity and other funds that put up money for sports industry deals. Chairman Joseph Leccese leads Proskauer’s sports law group. He was named a 2019 Dealmaker of the Year by the American Lawyer for representing the Carolina Panthers owners in their 2018 sale of the team to a hedge fund manager for $2.275 billion—the highest price ever paid for an NFL team. The firm also has expertise in executive compensation and benefits, and has defended corporate clients and media companies such as CBS in high-profile sexual harassment cases.”
