|June 26, 2006, New York -- The National Law Journal has named Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP partner Andrew Frey to its list of the "Top 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America." |
The National Law Journal noted Mr. Frey "has argued more than 60 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court," before 11 federal courts of appeals and in 11 state high courts; "represented the Clinton administration in its dispute with the Whitewater independent counsel over attorney-client privilege; an expert on punitive damages defense; served for 14 years in the Office of the Solicitor General, primarily as deputy in charge of the government's criminal litigation before the Supreme Court."
The newspaper also cited Mr. Frey as "a prominent defender of the Bush administration's authority to shield legal memoranda written by Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts Jr. while a legal aide to the White House."
In compiling its list, the National Law Journal said it reviewed nominations from readers and conducted its own research, looking for attorneys "with the clout to make big things happen. We were looking for lawyers who had a national impact in their fields and beyond, especially over the past five years-lawyers who have the power to shape public affairs, launch industries, shake things up and get things done."
