CHICAGO, Aug. 23, 2023 – Law360 has named King & Spalding an Illinois Regional Powerhouse, just six years after the firm opened its Chicago office.
Law360 selects its Regional Powerhouses based on two factors: the firms’ presence in the state, and the strength of the matters handled in the state during the past year.
Law360’s coverage notes the firm’s strength in advising companies on regulatory issues and government investigations, related commercial litigation, transactional matters, and work across the financial services and life sciences sectors.
The profile also highlights the Chicago office’s commitment to pro bono work, including helping secure an unprecedented trial victory on behalf of all transgender individuals incarcerated in the Illinois Department of Corrections, which won them the right to receive medical care to treat gender dysphoria, and its continued work on this issue in other states.
The firm’s Chicago office has grown to 56 lawyers since it opened in 2017. Law360 noted the firm’s focus on “excellence in hiring and lawyering, a culture of collegiality, and being a strategic fit for the area” in achieving that growth.
