Davis Polk honored at NYLJ’s New York Legal Awards
The New York Law Journal has recognized Davis Polk and several of the firm’s partners with 2023 New York Legal Awards.
Davis Polk partners Marshall Huebner, Margaret Tahyar and Lee Hochbaum were named “Dealmakers of the Year.” The award recognizes “talented and hardworking transactional lawyers who can close deals that make headlines.”
Marshall, co-head of Davis Polk’s Restructuring practice, was honored for his work in securing final approval of Purdue Pharma’s chapter 11 plan of reorganization – one of the largest and most complex mass tort cases in U.S. history. Margaret, head of Davis Polk’s Financial Institutions practice, and Lee were honored for their work advising financial institution clients throughout the recent banking crisis, including JPMorgan on its acquisition of the assets and liabilities of First Republic.
New York Law Journal also named Davis Polk a “Litigation Department of the Year” finalist, an honor bestowed upon firms with a New York presence that have demonstrated excellence in litigation over the past year. Among the firm’s major recent wins, Davis Polk secured a landmark Second Circuit decision affirming Purdue Pharma’s bankruptcy plan and obtained a rare dismissal of criminal charges brought by the DOJ Antitrust Division against our client for allegedly participating in a wide-ranging conspiracy to fix prices and rig bids for broiler chicken products.
This year’s honorees will be featured in New York Law Journal’s upcoming “Professional Excellence” report and will be celebrated on October 5 at the New York Legal Awards.
