The American Lawyer announced that Arnold & Porter was selected as a Finalist for its "Product Liability Department of the Year," which recognizes firms that are "at the core of industry-changing matters, leading the charge on their clients' most important cases and operating at a level that sets them apart from their peers." The firm's work for Monsanto on its acquisition by Bayer AG was noted as a finalist for a Global Legal Award in the M&A category.
Over the past year, the Product Liability practice has been recognized for its exceptional work, being named a "Practice Group of the Year" in 2018 by Law360. The firm's work on the Monsanto/Bayer deal has also garnered recognition. The deal was named "M&A Deal of the Year" at the 2019 IFLR Americas Awards and "Matter of the Year" at Global Competition Review's GCR Awards 2019.
Both awards will be presented at The American Lawyer Industry Awards gala in New York on December 4, 2019.
