Hughes Hubbard & Reed was among an elite group of firms named to Law360's inaugural list of "Litigation Powerhouses."
Hughes Hubbard placed No. 32 on a list of the top 50 litigation law firms in the US.
The winners "leveraged their deep legal talent to score remarkable wins for their clients over the past year," according to Law360.
"It's an honor to have our litigators recognized for their tireless efforts and major victories," said Bill Maguire, chair of the firm's litigation department. "This recognition underscores our commitment to providing quality legal services to our clients."
In the past year, Hughes Hubbard's victories included:
Appellate wins for Pfizer, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, Portigon and Deloitte

Law360 based its rankings on the size of the firm's litigation teams and their outstanding victories.
