In “When Disaster Strikes, Munger Tolles’ Litigators Come to Clients’ Rescue,” published Sunday, The American Lawyer described the firm’s deep expertise in crisis management litigation.

The article highlighted Munger Tolles’ defense of Pacific Gas & Electric in a multibillion-dollar criminal case that allowed the company to emerge from the largest reorganization of a public utility in U.S. history.

“At the core of our firm is our commitment to hiring and promoting only the best people,” Brad Brian, the firm chairman told The American Lawyer. “By best, I really don’t mean just grades and clerkships and law reviews. Those count. But I mean people who’ve had certain experiences in life that make them comfortable taking responsibility and making judgments.”
