New York, November 3, 2020— Proskauer, a leading international law firm, has been named to The National Law Journal's "2020 Appellate Hotlist." This award highlights firms that have handled high-stakes appellate matters.

"We are thrilled to receive this honor," said Tim Mungovan, chair of the Firm's Litigation department.

"Our appellate practice has an unparalleled depth of experience in managing precedent-setting and bet-the-company matters for our clients on a local, state and federal level. Our appeals have involved cutting-edge legal issues and the team has created innovative solutions to a wide array of complex matters," added Mr. Mungovan. 

Proskauer was highlighted for our work on behalf of the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico. Our litigation work includes over 70 related adversary proceedings and over 20 related appeals, including 9 wins over the last 18 months, before the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and the Supreme Court of the United States. In addition, our leading practice works on high stakes matters across the spectrum of law including in labor, sports, intellectual property, criminal, and complex commercial appeals.

Earlier this year, Proskauer's Litigation department was also awarded Benchmark Litigation's Impact Case of the Year for our ongoing work with the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico.
