Law360 has named WilmerHale as a "Life Sciences Practice Group of the Year" for 2013 in its annual competition. Based on the firm's diverse set of knowledge in serving its life sciences clients, the firm is recognized for playing a major role in some of the year's most noteworthy corporate, intellectual property and litigation matters in the life sciences industry.
"WilmerHale left multibillion-dollar marks on the pharmaceutical industry in 2013," according to the publication. The full editorial feature discussing the group and its successes is now available.
A committee of Law360 editors reviewed roughly 675 submissions from 130 law firms this year to choose only five winners in each of the 27 practice areas that were considered. 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.
WilmerHale was also named among Law360's 2013 Appellate and IP Practice Groups of the Year.
