Chambers 2017: Hueston Hennigan a “Powerhouse”


Hueston Hennigan LLP has been recognized by the newly released Chambers USA 2017 as a "powerhouse" firm that "boasts outstanding trial capabilities." Remarking on the firm's strong track record across both plaintiff and defense-side commercial cases, Chambers assessed Hueston Hennigan as bringing a "large-firm sensibility and approach, leaving no stone unturned." Chambers stated, "They bring an immediate credibility because the other side knows that they are dealing with highly experienced trial lawyers who aren't scared to go to trial." Chambers noted that "Sources hail the firm's ability to "deliver high-value, incisive, commercially practical advice very efficiently."

John Hueston and Brian Hennigan, who have both been repeatedly ranked as Band 1 attorneys, were again named “Leaders in their Field.” A distinction based on their “technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities most valued by the client.”

Mr. Hueston’s peers labeled him “one of the very best,” remarking on his “absolutely incredible” trial skills and the ability to anticipate “every challenge and possible weakness,” in cases.

Clients turn to Mr. Hennigan for his “wealth of experience across all aspects of enforcement and investigation work,” Chambers wrote, adding that peers commend his “real trial expertise and particular understanding of how the government looks at things.”

Since opening its doors in 2015, Hueston Hennigan has been ranked as a national Top 10 Boutique by Benchmark Litigation, named by Law360 as one of five top national trial boutiques, and one of California’s top boutiques by the Los Angeles Daily Journal. The firm’s clients include T-Mobile, Amazon, SpaceX, Tesla, Western Digital, the Navajo Nation, Amgen, Sumner Redstone, the University of California, Walt Disney, GlaxoSmithKline, PricewaterhouseCoopers and many others.
