Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP in New York has a practice that is 'smart, hardworking, collaborative and knowledgeable', according to one client. Another describes the firm as 'a repeat player in this market with unparalleled experience, which brings a sophisticated and pragmatic approach to bear on litigation'. Leading lights John Neuwirth and Joseph Allerhand are co-heads of the securities litigation practice, in which clients highlight the talents of partners Joshua Amsel, Jonathan Polkes, Greg Danilow and newly promoted Evert Christensen. Neuwirth's track record of high-profile cases continued last year when he secured the complete dismissal of a class action against Brookfield Asset Management concerning its $2.8bn acquisition of Rouse Properties, Inc. The case raised issues of whether Brookfield was a controlling stockholder and owed fiduciary duties to Rouse’s shareholders. Danilow is representing Straight Path in high-profile litigation relating to its $3bn acquisition by Verizon Communications.
