Dechert LLP was honored with the Award for Excellence in the Product Liability category at the Chambers USA awards dinner in New York on Thursday, June 11.

“We are delighted and honored to have received this important recognition. It reflects the talent and hard work of all of our team members,” said Dechert mass torts and product liability co-chair Sean Wajert, who accepted the award along with fellow co-chair Ezra Rosenberg.

In announcing the award, Chambers cited Dechert as the “undisputed heavyweight” in the area of pharmaceuticals and noted the firm’s “high profile clientele.” In addition, the firm was also praised for its “performance in industrial and consumer products cases.” Dechert topped six other finalists in winning the category.

“Most of all, this is a tribute to our clients, not only for the confidence they’ve shown in us, but more important for the way they work with us collaboratively to meet their goals, in the context of increasingly complex cases that challenge us to up our game continually,” Rosenberg said.
