Andrew Walsh and Joseph Reiter have been named to the list of 2022 Visionaries by the Business of Law Magazine from the L.A. Times B2B Publishing & Events.
Mr. Walsh represents clients in complex civil business disputes, high-stakes environmental and entertainment litigation, and white-collar criminal actions, in both state and federal court. Editors noted that he recently secured two declinations in high-profile criminal investigations, as well as his representation of the Navajo Nation in federal multi-district litigation against the USEPA, its contractors, and mining companies for damages arising out of the unprecedented acid mine wastewater spill from the Gold King Mine near Silverton, Colorado in August 2015. His determined strategy has led to a recovery of more than $40 million to date for the Navajo Nation with the latest USEPA settlement in June 2022.
Mr. Reiter, recently recognized by Law360 as a Rising Star, is counsel on many of the firm’s highest-profile trials, having played a key role in six trial/arbitration victories to date. Editors noted Mr. Reiter’s recent trial victories for PricewaterhouseCoopers in a closely watched federal whistleblower retaliation trial; a $25 million federal jury verdict for Acorn Technologies against Samsung for patent infringement; and Amazon in a high-profile and consequential breach-of-contract and tortious interference suit brought by eBay.
