25 White & Case Partners Named to Elite Legal 500 “Hall of Fame”

Twenty-five White & Case partners were selected by The Legal 500 for induction into The Legal 500 Hall of Fame, which "highlights individuals who have received constant praise by their clients for continued excellence," according to The Legal 500.

To be inducted into the Hall of Fame, a lawyer must have been recognized by The Legal 500 as one of its elite leading lawyers for eight of the last ten years, up to and including the 2017 edition.

In addition to publishing the names of the White & Case partners in its Hall of Fame announcement, The Legal 500 also published an interview with Firm Hall of fame inductee Paul Friedland (New York).
