The American Lawyer profiled Mark Hopson and Yvette Ostolaza, global co-leaders of Sidley’s Litigation practice, in the most recent installment of its “Litigation Leaders” series. In the article, Yvette and Mark discuss a wide range of topics that all culminate into a litigation department that is “Built to Win.” The article explores the personal side of Yvette and Mark’s background including growing up in bi-lingual homes and working their way to become leaders of Sidley’s “Elite” Litigation practice. Yvette and Mark also take the opportunity to convey what distinguishes Sidley’s litigators, the importance of building winning litigation teams, and how their vision for the Litigation group has translated into tangible results for Sidley’s clients.
Sidley’s Litigation practice distinguishes itself at each stage of the litigation process, from strategic motion practice, to trying the most closely watched cases, to precedent-setting appellate success. Sidley boasts more than 750 litigation lawyers in North America, Asia, and Europe practicing in virtually every area of business disputes, including commercial trials, intellectual property, class action defense, appellate, international arbitration, and white collar.
