Law360 Recognizes Arnold & Porter's Government Contracts and Life Sciences Groups as 2020 'Practice Groups of the Year'

December 2, 2020

Arnold & Porter's Government Contracts and Life Sciences groups have been named to the 2020 edition of Law360's "Practice Groups of the Year" list. The annual ranking honors law firms behind the legal work that "resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year."

Arnold & Porter's Government Contracts group, which was named to the list for the fifth time, was recognized for an outstanding year that included its representation of Airbus in final agreements between US, French, and UK Authorities and its successful representation of Fluor Corporation, a case that has far-reaching ramifications for government contractors making mandatory disclosures to the US government.

The firm's Life Sciences & Healthcare Regulatory group was recognized for its stellar work advising life science companies on the novel issues arising from the development of COVID-19 vaccines, drugs, medical devices, and diagnostics. This work included advising AstraZeneca in agreements for funding and global distribution of University of Oxford's potential COVID-19 vaccine.
