630 Vault Guide to the Top 100 Law Firms, 2018 Edition PEPPER HAMILTON LLP excellence in client service. Pepper Hamilton’s Construction Practice Group counsels clients on some of the biggest, most sophisticated construction projects in the world. The practice was ranked both nationally and for Pennsylvania in the 2017 edition of Chambers USA . November 2016 The Future Is Female Pepper Hamilton elected a six-person, all-female class of lawyers to the ranks of partner and of counsel. Thomas Gallagher, chairman of the firm’s Executive Committee, said, “We have elevated an exceptionally talented class of lawyers— all women—to our partnership and of counsel ranks. The women we promoted are all extraordinary lawyers. It is doubly rewarding to see us continue to advance our commitment to diversity and inclusion at the same time.” Reforming Prisons Lawyers from Pepper Hamilton teamed with the ACLU and Community Legal Aid Society, Inc. in a successful effort to discontinue the practice of imposing solitary confinement on mentally ill inmates in the Delaware state prison system. Inmates’ stories formed the basis of the complaint, which alleged that the Department of Correction’s practices were unconstitutional. The team developed a list of changes that they wanted the DOC to make, and the parties negotiated and were able to reach a settlement agreement that will dramatically change the conditions of solitary confinement and essentially end solitary for mentally ill prisoners. September 2016 Key Firm in the Keystone State Pepper Hamilton was the winner in both the Class Action and Products Liability categories of The Legal Intelligencer ’s 2016 Litigation Department of the Year contest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
