Lawrence A. Sucharow named “Titan” and one of the most admired attorneys of the plaintiffs bar by Law360


In a profile piece discussing Chairman Lawrence A. Sucharow’s several career milestones, peers remarked on some of the traits that have made him so successful. Called “a lawyer’s lawyer” and “dean of the plaintiffs bar.”

Larry’s innate sense of legal strategy — and the courage to speak freely about what is on his mind — led to a rapid rise within his firm and, ultimately, a seat atop his field.

As someone who has garnered the esteem of those on both sides of the bar, Larry’s style “focuses on making persuasive arguments rather than screaming and yelling,” said plaintiffs attorney Max Berger.

According to one defense attorney regarding Larry, “You can take his word to the bank and cash it.”
