White & Case was named "International Law Firm Of the Year 2011 in the Czech Republic" at the Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence 2011 held in Amsterdam on May 5, 2011. This is the second year in a row that White & Case has won top honors in the awards; in last year's competition, the Firm was named the "CEE Law Firm of the Year 2010."
"We are delighted and honored to be recognized for our success in the Czech Republic," said Jan Matějček, the Firm's Regional Section Head for Central and Eastern Europe. "The award speaks to the quality of our clients and of our lawyers and underscores White & Case's reputation as a leader in M&A, capital markets, insolvencies and litigation."
The award was the result of White & Case's top rankings in the Chambers Global 2011 directory, in which the Firm scored first in three out of four rating categories: Banking & Finance, Corporate/M&A and Restructuring/Insolvency. Also recognized in the directory were nine White & Case lawyers who received special recognition as "independent experts"—the highest number among Czech firms. The Firm's strategic growth and quality client service also received favorable ratings.
