Winston & Strawn LLP scored a string of significant victories and achieved settlement in landmark cases last year. The firm acted for Omnicare in a class action in the Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of the defendant in one of the most important ‘33 Act decisions of recent years. The case overturned the Sixth Circuit's judgment that a claim based solely on a statement of opinion need only allege that the opinion turned out to be wrong. John Schreiber in Los Angeles, and, in New York, James Smith and Richard Reinthaler were the key partners involved. Practice head Smith is described by clients as 'an exceptionally good lawyer - highly attentive to both the details and the big picture strategy'. The practice is noted for its 'ability to adapt to changing strategy as needed'. Reinthaler is currently representing Macquarie Infrastructure Corporation in two 10b5 cases arising from its the announcement of its 2017 financial results and dividend guidance for 2018. Robert Sperling in Chicago and Matthew DiRisio in New York are among the firm's talented partners.
