© 2017 Vault.com Inc. 352 Vault Guide to the Top 100 Law Firms, 2018 Edition MILBANK, TWEED, HADLEY & McCLOY LLP Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. As head of one of the highest-profile teams in federal law enforcement, and the first woman in over 30 years to hold the title, Goldstein prosecuted and supervised many of the major securities fraud cases in recent years. At Milbank, she joins USAO alumni George Canellos (who was also previously Co-Director of Enforcement at the SEC), Antonia Apps (who also teaches a course on white collar criminal law at Harvard), Thomas Arena, James Cavoli, and Adam Fee. Firm Chairman Scott A. Edelman, recognized as one of the country’s leading litigators, is also a USAO alum. March 2017 Restructuring Rising Though Milbank doesn’t have a Texas location, its Financial Restructuring practice has earned honorary Lone Star status thanks to its work for the big players in oil and gas. In March, Houston-based Linn Energy successfully emerged from bankruptcy; Milbank represented the note holders in that $7.7 billion deal. The firm also represented note holders in the restructuring of Oklahoma oil and gas leader Chaparral Energy, Inc. and its affiliates, and continues to play a key role for creditors in Puerto Rico’s ongoing bankruptcy proceedings, as well as for big names like Nortel Networks and Caesars Entertainment. Meanwhile, its partners continue to rack up accolades in the field, with practice head Dennis Dunne named “Global Restructuring Lawyer of the Year” at the Turnaround M&A Atlas Awards, and partner Andrew LeBlanc named “Bankruptcy Lawyer of the Year” by Benchmark Litigation . January 2017 Power Players When it comes to project finance, energy and infrastructure deals, Milbank frequently traffics in superlatives: the sale of one of the world’s largest geothermal facilities, by Chevron affiliates, in Indonesia; the acquisition of the largest solar facility in Colorado by J.P. Morgan Asset Management – Global Real Assets and Novatus; and the Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP) oil and gas field project financing, a first of its kind in Ghana, just to name a few. The firm also is highly influential in Latin America’s developing economies, with major finance transactions and infrastructure projects in Chile, Colombia, and Mexico, among others. No wonder the firm earns top accolades

    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.
