Faegre & Benson Practices Ranked Nationally by Chambers, Counted Among Best in Minnesota and Colorado

Three Faegre & Benson LLP practices, product liability, Indian tribes, and franchise and distribution, have received nationwide rankings in the 2010 edition of Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business.

The firm's product liability practice is new to the Products Liability & Mass Torts: Nationwide listing this year. Chambers highlights the practice's "strength in pharmaceutical and agricultural matters" and role its role as national counsel for Novartis in hormone therapy multidistrict litigation proceedings in the Eastern District of Arkansas.

Moving to band 1 this year, the Indian tribes practice has recently represented a number of syndicated bank lenders in the restructuring of distressed loans to Indian tribes. "Clients are attracted by the group's deep understanding of tribal finance and strong lines of communication with federal agencies," according to Chambers.

After making a jump to band 2 in this last year's guide, the firm's franchise practice is included among the nation's elite provider of legal services to franchisors in a range of industries. Representing more than 200 franchisors across the globe, lawyers in the practice "approach matters with an expert level of legal knowledge, but perhaps more importantly, with business objectives and company history in mind," a client told Chambers.

Practices in Minnesota and Colorado were also recognized as among the best in their respective states. In Minnesota, the firm was top ranked in Construction; Corporate/M&A; Litigation: General Commercial; and Real Estate. Colorado practices to receive top rankings were Corporate/M&A; Intellectual Property; Natural Resources & Environment; and Real Estate: Construction.

Based on strong recommendations from the market, a total of 49 Faegre & Benson lawyers were listed in the guide.
