Two Arnold & Porter Partners Named to Daily Journal's Top Women Lawyers List
Washington, DC, May 10, 2012 -- Arnold & Porter LLP’s Teresa Johnson and Pamela Phillips, both San Francisco partners, were named to the Daily Journal’s Top Women Lawyers List. Johnson, one of 25 corporate attorneys selected, was noted for her representation of Charles Schwab in its first issuance of preferred stock worth $400 million. Johnson also represented Recology, Inc., a private waste and recycling company, in its acquisition of, CleanScapes Inc., a waste hauler based in Seattle. Phillips was one of 75 litigators named to the list. This is her third appearance on the list. The Daily Journal detailed the 20 years she has spent defending attorneys in legal malpractice cases. In a recent victory, Phillips defended Manatt, Phelps & Phillips in a malpractice suit brought by a group of retired NFL players. That suit was dismissed by U.S. District Judge William Alsup. That case is pending appeal in the 9th Circuit.
