Date: 07/19/23

Herb Washer, Co-Chair of Cahill’s Executive Committee and Chair of the Litigation Department, has been named as a finalist for “Litigator of the Year” as part of The American Lawyer’s 2023 Industry Awards, one of only eight litigators nationwide to be recognized. This year’s finalists represent the best of the best across the legal profession and are meant to honor historic tenets of the profession along with its promise of continued evolution for the better.

Among other precedent-setting matters and victories during the contest period, in October 2022, Herb led a trial team that earned The American Lawyer’s Litigators of the Week for their work securing a landmark jury trial victory for Credit Suisse in connection with a case alleging that Credit Suisse and 15 other banks had violated the federal antitrust laws by fixing prices in the $5 trillion-per-day foreign exchange currency market.
