April 23, 2012 Accolades

SAN FRANCISCO (April 23, 2012): Farella Braun + Martel LLP is one of 20 law firms across the United States recognized in The National Law Journal’s “Midsize Hot List.” 

The “Midsize Hot List” spotlights law firms with 50 to 150 attorneys across the country that are “good at what they do, but they're also good at how they do it — in spotting legal trends while they're still emerging and positioning themselves to take advantage; in pioneering billing arrangements that deliver results at prices clients can actually afford; and in building groups of attorneys who work well together and stick around to serve their clients for the long haul.”

In its profile of Farella Braun + Martel, The National Law Journal noted the firm’s ability to embrace niche practices such as renewable energy, bankruptcy and the wine industry. Of note was the firm’s 2011 patent litigation jury verdict for Volterra Semiconductor Corp. and the creation of innovative industry-wide voluntary employee benefit associations (VEBAs).
