Annual Review

Our 2021 Year in Review

A Message from the Chair

2021 was a very successful year for Hughes Hubbard on all fronts. But our most important metric is the results we achieve for our clients. By that measure, 2021 was an outstanding year. We achieved important wins for our clients, many in extraordinarily complex or new areas of law, and we continued our track record for success and incredible teamwork despite the continued obstacles in an ongoing pandemic.

Results Last year was very successful for all of our practice areas, and we have our clients to thank for that.
