134 Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw Lawyers Listed in Chambers USA Guide to Leading Business Lawyers

6 June 2006 - One hundred thirty-four Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP lawyers are listed in the 2006 Chambers USA guide to leading business lawyers. The guide highlights the firm's work in several dozen practice areas throughout the U.S. Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP senior counsel Philip Lacovara and partner Robert Baptista were also singled out in receiving prestigious "Chambers USA Awards for Excellence." Mr. Lacovara was honored for his public service, government and pro bono experiences and Mr. Baptista was honored for his banking and finance work.

Chambers USA gave the firm high marks in such areas as antitrust, banking and finance, bankruptcy, capital markets, corporate/M&A, employment, energy, environment, insurance, intellectual property, international trade, litigation, products liability, outsourcing, private investment, real estate, tax, telecom, broadcast, and satellite work.

"This remarkable firm continues to be a leading light," said Chambers of the firm's banking and finance practice. "The firm's outstanding securitization practice spreads across New York, Chicago and Charlotte and enjoys a stellar reputation even beyond national borders."

Mayer Brown is "home to over 230 M&A lawyers practicing out of its 13 international offices. Consequently, the resources at this full-service firm's disposal ensure it can draw on a vast pool of specialist lawyers across the firm as and when needed," said Chambers of the firm's corporate M&A practice "The firm's international reach is also an advantage in cross-border transactions. A broad spectrum of clients, including private equity and leveraged buy-out firms, joint ventures and institutional investors, are attracted by the coverage and business-savvy approach of the group."

Chambers praised the firm's litigation practice: "Its coast-to-coast national scope provides, according to clients, a coordinated one-stop shop that also covers international ground. It is consequently adept at handling asbestos and tobacco litigation as well as mass torts, securities class actions and antitrust litigation. With such a deep bench you always get a high-quality product, sources said. The firm's tremendous appellate practice adds further luster to a team that brings together an advocacy package of the highest level to produce an A-plus job."

Chambers said of the firm's business outsourcing practice: "Interviewees praised this practice for its unparalleled depth, its large volume of ITO and BPO deals, and its terrific relationship with technology consultants . According to clients: The dollar-for-dollar value that you get with them is completely unmatched - the only way they could improve would be to clone individuals and get even more of them."
