Sidley Austin Bolsters Their LA Office with Two Talented Lawyers
Sidley Austin LLP continues to bolster their Los Angeles presence with the addition of two they've pulled from Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, an award winning Top Trial Lawyer, Chad Hummel, and a Leading Consumer Protection Partner, Clayton S. Friedman.
"We are excited to welcome Chad and Clay to our rapidly growing team of top-tier lawyers in Los Angeles," said Mike Kelley, co-managing partner of Sidley's Los Angeles office and member of the firm's Executive Committee. "Their arrival follows closely several recent additions in Los Angeles, including Dan Clivner and Matt Thompson in Century City and Joel Rothstein in our downtown Los Angeles office."
Mr. Hummel holds a strong reputation as a trial lawyer, with his death-defying acumen saving companies in antitrust, intellectual property, advertising, and marketing trials.
Mr. Friedman brings the carriage of decades of experience representing federal and state departments and even the Federal Trade Commission.
"Chad's strong reputation and deep experience as a trial lawyer in some of the nation's most high-profile cases make him an exciting addition to our firm," said Carter Phillips, chairman of the firm's Executive Committee. "Clay brings a multistate attorney general and consumer regulatory practice to Sidley that is a powerful addition to Sidley's leading consumer regulatory and litigation experience. They are dynamic and highly respected lawyers whose talent and skill will add immediate value to our client relationships."
Their LA presence continues to intensify with all the raw talent they've been bringing aboard.
"Chad and Clay are well-known and respected lawyers in the community and nationally, and will be dynamic additions to our talented team here in Los Angeles," said Dan Clivner, co-managing partner of Sidley's Los Angeles office. "We look forward to drawing from their tremendous knowledge and experiences in advising our clients facing the types of complex cases that are right in Chad and Clay's wheelhouse."
