United States: Thelen Named 2007 Global Construction Law Firm Of The Year
Last Updated: April 25 2007

LONDON and NEW YORK (April 24, 2007)—Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner LLP has been named the 2007 "Global Construction Law Firm of the Year" by Who’s Who Legal.

The annual "Law Firm of the Year" awards are determined based on nominations made by clients of the firm and fellow professionals. Only the most exceptional performance receives this distinction in each of 27 practice areas.

"For many years, our firm has been recognized as having the ‘preeminent Construction Law Practice in the United States,’" said Thelen Construction Chair John Heisse. "This distinction shows that the industry is aware of our continued growth and now sees us as a global leader."

In 2006, for the fourth year in a row, Chambers USA ranked Thelen as the number one Construction practice in the U.S., noting that the firm "preserves its position as outright leader, along with its renowned vigor on both national and international fronts in the construction, infrastructure, and engineering arenas."

In recent years, Thelen has expanded its international operations considerably, including a joint-venture with UK-based Pinsent-Masons to handle global construction and infrastructure projects under the banner of Masons Thelen Reid LLP. (Who’s Who awarded Pinsent-Masons the Global Construction Law Firm of the Year for 2006.) Last August, Thelen also opened its first overseas office in Shanghai, which has since grown to 13 attorneys, and, in February, the firm opened an office in London.

Thelen has a long history of providing legal services to clients in the construction industry, dating back to the 1930s, when it represented the predecessors of the Bechtel companies and the Kaiser interests in building the Hoover Dam. Since then, the firm has continued to play a central role in the construction and financing of such major infrastructure projects as the Golden Gate and San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridges; the Bonneville, Shasta, and Grand Coulee Dams; the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, Eurotunnel, and numerous other power plants, factories, transportation systems, airports, pipelines, government projects, and landmark buildings.

Recent representations have included the Aguaytia gas complex and Lima Airport in Peru, the Dabhol Power Project in India, a light-water nuclear power plant and high-speed rail line in South Korea; and the Motorola Chip Factory and Meixhou Wan Power Plant in China.
