Malcolm A. Heinicke has been named a Rising Star in employment law by Law360. Mr. Heinicke was one of five employment attorneys included on the publication’s March 21 list of lawyers under the age of 40 to watch.
He was selected for his “formidable track record” and “stellar practice” that includes clients such as Hewlett-Packard Co., Wells Fargo Securities LLC, and 99 Cents Only Stores.
“The secret to success is that there is no secret. As attorneys, our job is to provide excellent practical advice and problem-solving,” Mr. Heinicke told Law360. “ We treat clients’ problems like our own and work diligently to resolve them.”
The article also quoted Russell F. Wolpert, general counsel for 99 Cents Only Stores, who said Mr. Heinicke is nothing short of “brilliant” in and out of the courtroom.
“Malcolm consistently outmaneuvers everyone. It is very rare indeed to come across someone who is so precise that he misses no detail, no matter how microscopic or obscure, yet is also enormously creative,” Mr. Wolpert said.
Mr. Heinicke is a partner in the San Francisco office of Munger, Tolles & Olson. His practice focuses on employment and complex commercial litigation, particularly in California and national class actions.
