Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP is pleased to announce that the Financial Times cited the firm in its 2012 list of the "most innovative law firms." Edwards Wildman earned a spot on the "commended" list of litigation practices in recognition of the firm's defense of Mark Philip, the former president of Stryker Biotech, against Federal Drug Administration charges that included wire fraud. Steve Huggard and Hilary Dudley, a litigation partner and associate, respectively, in the firm's Boston office, represented Philip in this ground-breaking case.
The FT Most Innovative Lawyers survey ranks lawyers on pioneering innovative techniques in the legal industry. Law firms, in-house legal teams and other legal service organizations are invited to submit their innovations. These are then fully researched through telephone interviews with third-party referees. No entry appears in the FT report without a robust client or independent reference. Market experts are also called in to assess the submissions and the research. The entries are then scored on originality, rationale and impact, and benchmarked against each other to arrive at the final rankings.
Edwards Wildman's litigation practice has more than 200 lawyers. The firm's attorneys handle complex civil and criminal cases, internal investigations and regulatory matters on behalf of Fortune 100 corporations, closely held companies, tax-exempt organizations and individuals. Edwards Wildman represents these clients across a wide range of substantive areas, including antitrust; commercial litigation; IP litigation; labor and employment; product liability and toxic torts; and white collar & government enforcement.
