NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2020 — Law360 has recognized King & Spalding’s Construction practice as a 2020 Practice Group of the Year for handling “major deals including a $20 billion gas project in Mozambique, while taking on legal fights with a powerful team of construction and arbitration lawyers.” The firm previously earned this recognition in 2018.
In its profile of the practice, Law360 highlights the group’s role in advising client Anadarko for almost a decade on what is considered the largest sanctioned oil and gas project ever in sub-Saharan Africa; counseling Global Clean Energy on the conversion of a petroleum diesel refinery in California into a renewable biodiesel refinery; and representing clients in multiple major construction disputes, including Crestwood Equity Partners in litigation with Linde Engineering North America Inc. over an expansion of the Bear Den processing plant in the Bakken Shale.
Law360’s annual Practice Group of the Year honors are given to the law firms behind the “litigation wins and major deals that resonated throughout the legal industry” in the past year. The Practice Groups of the Year were selected from among 775 submissions from 81 law firms.
In addition to being named a Construction Practice Group of the Year, the firm is also recognized as a 2020 Practice Group of the Year for International Arbitration, Product Liability and Structured Finance.
