On January 1, 2014, WilmerHale's Appellate, Intellectual Property and Life Sciences Practices were included in Law360's "Practice Group of the Year" series for 2013. For this annual listing, Law360 selects only five firms per practice area that have played a key role in the significant matters that made headlines and changed the legal landscape within the past year.
This year is the fourth consecutive year WilmerHale has been included in the annual listing.
A committee of Law360 editors reviewed roughly 675 submissions from 130 law firms this year and chose 154 groups from 69 firms to honor in this year's awards. Winners were selected based on the significance of the litigation wins or deals worked on, the size and complexity of the litigation wins or deals worked on, and the number of significant, large or complex deals the group worked on or lawsuits the group won in 2013. Profiles of the winning groups will appear on Law360 beginning Jan. 3.
