New York, New York, April 23, 2008…Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, a leading national law firm with offices in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, was selected for the second time as “Law Firm of the Year” by Institutional Investor’s Total Securitization. The winner was announced on April 17, 2008.
The Annual U.S. Securitization Awards honor the top institutions in the securitization industry in many categories, including the law firm of the year. In selecting Stroock, Total Securitization noted that Stroock’s clients praised the firm for the quality of its advice and for its consistent ability to deliver innovative and market leading solutions.
“We are thrilled to win this award a second time in just four years," said Lois Weinroth, co-head of Stroock’s Structured Finance Practice Group. "I believe that this award reflects, above all, our clients' appreciation of Stroock's approach to the practice of law: We have hands-on partners that work readily across disciplines and departments, and that strive to provide business-sensitive legal advice. For that reason, we feel this award is shared not only by our outstanding Structured Finance Practice Group, but also by the attorneys in other departments, such as tax, derivatives, insurance, financial restructuring and litigation, with whom our structured finance attorneys work daily and who are critical to their success.”
