NEW YORK, April 25, 2022 – Proskauer, a leading international law firm, is pleased to announce that the Firm has been named by Benchmark Litigation as Labor and Employment Management Firm of the Year for the East Coast and Bankruptcy Firm of the Year for the West Coast.
This is the third time the Firm’s Bankruptcy Practice and the fourth time the Labor and Employment Practice have been named to the annual list, which honors the country’s most distinguished firms and litigators. The Firm was also shortlisted for Bankruptcy Firm of the Year for the East Coast.
Proskauer has continued its streak of high-profile engagements, including representing the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico in its historic confirmation of the Plan of Readjustment, which was the first territorial debt restructuring and one of the most active litigations in U.S. history and representing Major League Baseball in a lawsuit filed by a current Major League umpire where he alleged he was passed over for multiple crew chief openings and World Series assignments because of his heritage.
These prestigious awards are determined through months of peer-and-client-review-based research. With top-tier litigation and labor & employment practices, Proskauer lawyers are at the cutting edge of contentious matters with extensive trial experience in virtually every major forum across the globe and winning make-or-break cases, changing laws, and establishing precedents.
Benchmark Litigation also named Michael Firestein as Bankruptcy Litigator of the Year for the West Coast for the third consecutive time. Several Proskauer partners were also shortlisted this year in key categories: Anthony Oncidi, for Labor and Employment Litigator of the Year for the West Coast; Bart Williams, for California Trial Lawyer of the Year; and Elise Bloom for Labor and Employment Management Litigator of the Year for the East Coast.
