Adam Hakki, Shearman & Sterling’s Global Managing Partner and Global Head of the Litigation Practice & Disputes Unit, has been named a Banking “MVP” by Law360 for the second consecutive year. Adam’s selection for this prestigious honor, which reflects the stellar work of our entire team, is in recognition of his and the Firm’s preeminent status as counsel to the financial industry and, in particular, a string of high-profile courtroom victories in the last year for major financial institution clients in a wide array of significant securities, antitrust, government and commercial cases.
The elite group of attorneys chosen as a Law360 “MVP” have distinguished themselves from their peers by securing hard-earned successes in high-stakes litigation, complex global matters and record-breaking representations.
Earlier this year, Adam was named “Securities Lawyer of the Year” for the United States by Benchmark Litigation, the leading litigation and disputes-specific directory. Adam has won this award in four of the last five years. He is also recognized in publications such as Chambers USA, The Legal 500 and Benchmark Litigation as one of the country’s most sought-after litigators.
