Seyfarth Shaw LLP is ‘a strong, up-and-coming firm in this space with a respected practice that shows tremendous creativity and outside-the-box thinking’. The firm has a strong track record in mid-market cases and boosted its bench significantly with the hire of leading light Gregory Markel in New York from Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP. Will Prickett in Boston defended directors and officers of Nanosphere in cases brought after the announcement of its acquisition by Luminex Corp. Andrew Boutros, who operates from Chicago and Washington DC, is ‘exceptional, the real deal - very thorough, meticulous and client-focused’.
