Hueston Hennigan Named California Powerhouse


Hueston Hennigan has been named a 2019 California Regional Powerhouse by Law360. Hueston Hennigan was one of five firms recognized as part of Law360’s annual regional Powerhouse series, which selects firms based on their significant accomplishments in the region over the past year.

“The key to [our] success has been our ability to quickly focus on the key determinative issues in bet-the-company litigation, and to move at an accelerated pace to either very favorable settlements or wins at trial,” said John Hueston to Law360.

Law360 noted Hueston Hennigan’s recent high-profile successes in helping Elon Musk hammer out a settlement with the SEC; handling a string of legal actions involving Sumner Redstone, the former CEO of Viacom; and reaching a $6.5 million settlement on behalf of the Navajo Nation in its claims against Wells Fargo.

Managing partner Brian Hennigan said “we partner with, invest in and listen carefully to our clients before crafting legal strategies to obtain the optimum results.”
