Debevoise & Plimpton LLP partner and co-chair of the Commercial Litigation Group Maura Monaghan was spotlighted in The American Lawyer’s “Litigation Leaders” series, which highlights leaders of the largest law firms in the country.
In the Q&A feature, Ms. Monaghan discusses the tremendous bench strength of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Group which houses some of the nation’s finest healthcare, securities and mass tort litigators, as well as her goals and priorities for the practice in 2022. The feature also highlights the distinguishing features of the firm’s litigators, most of whom she notes are homegrown partners. Ms. Monaghan comments: “Debevoise is a true partnership; we try to cooperate as fiercely within the firm as we compete fiercely outside it. We really like working together, and our clients tell us that comes through in our relationships with them. Our partners take a very hands-on approach to litigation — our senior lawyers are there all the time and very deeply enmeshed in the facts. We are a group of people who are fascinated by problem-solving and eager to dig deep to help our clients find solutions that work for them.”
