Foley was also featured among Law360’s top 100 firms with the most partners in real estate, employment, insurance, mergers & acquisitions, bankruptcy, competition and environmental.

Foley partners in its securities & white collar practices have significant depth across an array of regulatory, criminal, securities, and anti-corruption matters, including matters brought by the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.

“This acknowledgement of Foley’s top 20 securities and white collar practice underscores our expertise in this important area of burgeoning government enforcement and litigation,” said Foley Litigation Department Chair Michael Tuteur. “Our clients rely on and praise these experienced partners’ representation in a wide range of domestic and international matters brought by the prosecutory and regulatory agencies.”

Foley’s IP partners deliver practical advice and services to help clients uphold IP rights and achieve business goals. Their breadth of knowledge and experience has resulted in many influential U.S. and international IP law and policy changes, including the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act.

“We’re proud to be so highly recognized in IP and securities & government enforcement,” said Jay Rothman, Foley Chairman and CEO. “As we further grow these practices, our clients will continue to benefit.”
