Litigation Dept. of the Year

Isn’t this nice? The American Lawyer has honored Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison’s litigation department, saying:

"Paul Weiss is our 2006 Litigation Department of the Year winner because Citigroup is just one of the Fortune 100 companies that have Paul Weiss to thank for their survival. In case after case since 2004, such clients as Hollinger International Inc., American International Group Inc. and Merck & Co. Inc. trusted Paul Weiss’ litigators to guide them through the most perilous corporate minefields. And in a time period in which business scandal, complete with criminal and regulatory investigations and tag-along civil suits, dominated headlines, no law firm handled cases with higher stakes than Paul Weiss — and no law firm was as successful at saving its clients’ businesses."

Sounds like a real challenge for everyone, paralegals included, I would imagine…
