Foley Hoag Partner Paul Reichler Named an International Arbitration MVP by Law360
December 14, 2016
Legal publisher Law360 has named Foley Hoag LLP partner Paul Reichler to its annual MVPs ("Most Valuable Players") list for work undertaken in specific areas of practice. The MVP awards honor elite attorneys for their successes in high-stakes litigation, significant deals, or complex global matters in the previous year.
Reichler, who chairs the firm's International Litigation and Arbitration Department, was recognized as an International Arbitration MVP.
Law360 editors reviewed more than 1000 MVP submissions detailing individual achievements and selected 177 attorneys spanning 38 different practices areas. All MVPs are being profiled in detail by Law360 during November and December 2016; Reichler's profile was published on December 13.
In July, Reichler was named “Litigator of the Week” by American Lawyer Media on its Law.com site, and also featured in a New York Times profile entitled “Defending David Against the World’s Goliaths in International Court.” Both publications cited Reichler for his recent victories on behalf of the Philippines and Uruguay.
Reichler, along with a team of Foley Hoag attorneys, won two significant international cases that will have major impact around the world. On July 8, Reichler prevailed in a successful defense of Uruguay’s strict regulation of tobacco packaging and branding against a challenge by Philip Morris International (PMI). Days later on July 12, he won a victory against China on behalf of the Philippines regarding maritime rights in the South China Sea.
