Sidley’s IP and Financial Services Teams Honored at Chambers USA Awards Dinner

Sidley Austin LLP is proud to have received two team awards at the 2016 Chambers USA Awards Dinner held in New York City.

The firm’s Financial Services & Securities Regulation team was honored as the 2016 Team of the Year for being a “true market leader in the broker dealer industry.” The team, which has been expanding with recent lateral hires, was noted by Wall Street insiders as a “go-to shop for both compliance and enforcement matters.” 

Sidley’s Intellectual Property team won the Intellectual Property Client Service award based on the “high praise from blue chip clients across the United States.” The team was recognized by clients for its ability to analyze cases, for considering non-traditional fee arrangements and for its strategic advice and work product. 

Sidley’s Products Liability and Environmental teams were shortlisted for their respective practice areas.
