WilmerHale Shortlisted for Most Impressive Investigations Practice Honor by GIR

October 6, 2017

WilmerHale has been named a finalist for the Most Impressive Investigations Practice of the Year Award given by Global Investigations Review (GIR). This is the second straight year the firm has been shortlisted for the award, which it won in 2016.
 
This year, GIR selected WilmerHale as one of five firms competing for the top honor, which will be announced on October 26 at the GIR Awards 2017 banquet in Washington DC. The finalists are law firms that have “handled the largest and/or most complex investigations of the past 12 months and secured consistently good results,” GIR stated. In the past year, WilmerHale has secured declinations for major companies in government investigations, GIR noted in its announcement.
 
WilmerHale was recognized in 2016 with the award based on, among other successes, closing Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations on five separate matters through declinations or favorable settlements. The firm also ranked second on GIR's Top 30 list of the leading investigations practices in the industry.
