"At the Core of Industry-Changing Matters" — WTO a Finalist for National Litigation Boutique of the Year

Date: 10.01.19

Denver: For the second year in a row, The American Lawyer has named Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell (WTO) a finalist for the National Specialty / Boutique Litigation Firm of the Year Award.

Only seven firms in the U.S. made the short list, and WTO is one of only two firms to repeat from the prior year.

“Our finalists . . . are at the core of industry-changing matters,” writes The American Lawyer, “leading the charge on their clients’ most important cases and operating at a level that sets them apart from their peers.”

WTO Chairman Michael O’Donnell recognized WTO’s clients: “We appreciate the confidence our clients place in us, year after year, to handle their most sensitive cases. Without their trust, this recognition would not be possible.”

Finalists will be celebrated and winners announced at a December 4 gala in New York City.

The American Lawyer recognition follows on the heels of BTI Consulting’s announcement naming WTO one of the Top 14 “Most Feared” Law Firms in the U.S., based on interviews with in-house counsel.
