When The American Lawyer named Debevoise its 2014 “Litigation Department of the Year,” it stated that “no rival of any size could match the magnitude of Debevoise’s recent litigation results.”

Winners of The American Lawyer’s 2014 “Litigation Department of the Year,” the Debevoise Litigation Department has four practices that independently and collectively are among the very best in the world, providing broad, unmatched litigation capabilities across a wide range of substantive areas. These include Commercial Litigation, International Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property and White Collar & Regulatory Defense.
Debevoise litigators consistently deliver outstanding results for their clients at every stage of a litigation. In its recent “Litigation Department of the Year” feature, The American Lawyer remarked that Debevoise “over two years produced two $25 billion results, a pair of trial defense wins worth $3.5 billion apiece, and the biggest investor-state award in arbitration history.”
The firm’s litigators bring personal attention, deep industry knowledge and substantive legal experience to each matter, tailoring advice to clients’ needs, priorities and circumstances. The group relies on a talent pool that provides practical solutions to clients’ disputes. The Debevoise team is truly collaborative at every level, working seamlessly with clients, with co-counsel and across practices to achieve the best results in their clients’ most challenging matters.
The litigation team brings unmatched government experience to client matters, boasting 14 former Assistant U.S. Attorneys among its ranks, as well as a wide range of other former government lawyers. Perhaps even more impressive is the Litigation Department’s global reach. From mid-2011 to mid-2013 alone, the team litigated matters that touched on more than 90 countries. Said The American Lawyer: “The Debevoise map of the world covers just about everywhere outside littoral Africa and the Fertile Crescent.”
