From the Daily Journal: In less than a year, the partners at Hueston Hennigan LLP have accomplished more than most attorneys might dream of doing in their entire careers. Specializing in both commercial litigation and white collar criminal defense, Hueston Hennigan's high-profile client list is drawn from the Fortune 500 and includes companies in several industries, including telecommunications, technology, pharmaceuticals, insurance, entertainment, financial services, international gaming, health care and consumer debt. Among the firm's other notable clients are; Walt Disney Co., Pizza Hut, Waste Management of Hawaii Inc., and William Koch. John Hueston and Brian Hennigan began the firm in January with a vision to create a nimble, trial law boutique for high-profile clients and high-impact cases. To accomplish those ends, they left Irell & Manella's business trials and white collar department, with the firm's business trials group partners, to build their own firm that includes several well-regarded attorneys, top young associates and the recent addition of entertainment attorney Robert Klieger, formerly of Kendall, Klieger & Brill LLP.
