June 16, 2014

S&C's Intellectual Property and Technology Group and its co-heads were recognized in the recently published 2014 edition of IAM 1000, the World's Leading Patent Practitioners. Among other comments, IAM states “Corporate Powerhouse Sullivan & Cromwell is a worthy choice for important patent litigation. The IP group is relatively compact, but its talented lawyers can go toe to toe with anyone out there... The Firm can handle the most intricate deals with elegance.”

Regarding the Group's co-heads, IAM says that Mr. Beeney is “one of the best trial lawyers on the planet who sounds the part, looks the part, and is always prepared and persuasive, with especially brilliant opening and closing presentations.” Mr. Mousavi was said to have “that bag of tricks – the legal erudition, the superlative drafting and bargaining aptitude – you need when you spend thousands of hours negotiating these deals. When you combine that with how keenly attuned he is to the business, culture and management hierarchy of his client, he is a uniquely talented lawyer. You can put him on pretty much anything…and trust his advice.” Mr. Evangelakos was called “a heavyweight dealmaker…His multi-disciplinary skills were on show during his representation of Eastman Kodak in connection with its global restructuring.”
