NEW YORK – Oct. 31, 2022 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP is a finalist in four categories for The American Lawyer (Am Law) Industry Awards: Corporate Purpose Award, Best Business Team, and the Regional Litigation Department of the Year awards for Georgia and for New Jersey. Am Law is to hold an awards ceremony Nov. 10.
Am Law noted that the awards not only honor the inspirational work of attorneys, but also aim to celebrate ways in which the profession is innovating and better meeting client needs.
“We are honored to be recognized among the top law firms and leaders as part of the American Lawyer awards, which celebrates our commitment to achieving the best results for our clients,” Greenberg Traurig CEO Brian L. Duffy said. “Equally as important, we are gratified that these recognitions spotlight our dedication to serving our communities and the importance of bringing together our Greenberg Traurig family after the challenges brought about by the pandemic.”
Executive Chairman Richard A. Rosenbaum said, “We are constantly committed to adding value and elevating our excellence, year after year. This past year’s great success on behalf of our clients and in our pro bono work is the direct result of our continued implementation of our core values of innovation, collaboration, hard work, and dedication to exceeding our clients’ expectations.”
Greenberg Traurig’s pro bono effort to assist refugees following military crises in Afghanistan and Ukraine, was named a finalist for the Corporate Purpose Award. The award honors an organization that has defined and executed on an initiative or overall mission that supports the well-being and welfare of its members or other stakeholders. With the launch of a global training program, more than 100 Greenberg Traurig attorneys have assisted over 118 families of Afghan refugees (over 580 individuals) in the filing of humanitarian parole applications within a nine-month period.
The Best Business Team award honors those teams that have had an identifiable impact on their organization, according to the publication. The firm was named a finalist for the 2021 “Mel on Wheels Getting Together Tour,” conceived as a way to reconnect the workforce after nearly a year of remote work. Rosenbaum and Duffy traveled the United States and then Europe in a customized recreational vehicle visiting thousands of Greenberg Traurig employees at a total of 29 stops across 15 different states and five different countries. The tour was made possible through the combined efforts of various firm business departments, including technology, human resources, marketing and communications, and finance, as well as firm leadership.
The Regional Litigation Department of the Year awards recognize the best litigation department in seven different states, according to The American Lawyer. This is the fifth year in which Greenberg Traurig’s Atlanta Litigation Practice was named a finalist in Georgia, having won the category in 2018 and 2021. The team was recognized for its successful representation of major global companies and leading corporations in several large mass torts and multicase litigations across the United States for clients including Becton Dickinson, Sandoz, Medtronic, Teva Pharmaceuticals, and PeachCap Tax & Advisory. The New Jersey litigation team was named a finalist for the second time, recognized for its success in defending long-standing clients including Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, HSBC, Verizon, Samsung, and Marriott Ownerships Resorts, Inc.
