Bartlit Beck Attorneys Receive High Praise

July 2015

The firm and multiple attorneys were recently recognized in the Legal 500.  Here are some excerpts:

“BBHPS has quickly built a stellar track record of courtroom victories.  This ‘really strong litigation practice’ has ‘an excellent reputation for coming in late in the day to resolve problems.’  A strong team in Chicago includes Philip Beck, Chris Lind, Adam Hoeflich and Rebecca Bacon, who have impressive trial experience, as do Sean Grimsley and Eric Olson in Denver.  Highlights include defending Sonitrol in a $50m breach of contract case, and filing a claim for American Airlines against Sabre.”

It also states “‘Leading trial boutique’ BBHPS attracts praise for its deep bench of litigation experts who have substantial experience representing industry players in both trial and strategic roles.”

The piece also highlighted Phil and Hoeflich’s work:  “Philip Beck is an impressively diverse trial lawyer whose trial work includes major constitutional matters such as the Bush v. Gore recount litigation in 2000, antitrust litigation on behalf of the United States against Microsoft, tort and product liability cases for clients such as Vioxx and Baycol, and major IP cases on behalf of the likes of UTC.  E&Y, Deloitte and Arthur Andersen are also regular clients of Beck, who is ‘a great strategist who always has his client’s interests at heart.’”  And “Chicago-based ‘fantastic lawyer’ Philip Beck has served as lead trial lawyer in numerous high-stakes cases, which include representing Merck & Co in five bellwether trials arising from allegations that the drug Vioxx caused heart attacks and strokes:  Beck won outright defense verdicts in four of the five trials.  ‘Leading MDL specialist’ Adam Hoeflich, also in Chicago, is recognized as a ‘master strategist.’”
