The National Law Review names ArentFox Schiff LLP a Go-To Thought Leader in the field of Election Law. In March of 2022, authors Adam Diederich and Kirstie Brenson authored the article “Big Lie Could Mean Big Trouble for Fox News in Defamation Case,” which discusses at length Smartmatic’s defamation lawsuit against Fox News for its coverage of Donald Trump’s “Big Lie.” The article gained significant traction for its timeliness and thorough coverage, and is but one example of the firm’s outstanding thought leadership.

 ArentFox Schiff LLP has been named a Go-To Thought Leader in the field of cannabis law for their stellar coverage of federal cannabis legalization efforts in 2022. Authors David P. Grosso and Shahiedah Shabazz authored the article “Summer 2022: A Brief Cannabis Legalization Update,” which details how efforts to legalize cannabis have gained traction not only at the state level, but at the federal level as well. The article received over 12,000 views and serves as a valuable resource for industry professionals.

The National Law Review recognizes Christopher M. Floss and Stephen Liss of Schiff Hardin as 2021 Go To Thought leaders for their contributions regarding the Estate and Trust Law implications of the Build Back Better Act and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  NLR readers value Mr. Floss' and Mr. Liss' extensive, gift and income tax experience which they use to break down the tax implications of the complicated and extensive pandemic-related legislation.  Their insightful analysis of topics ranging from temporary changes to the gift and estate tax exemption, to state and local tax deduction changes and the valuation of non-business assets, provides practical information and strategies readers can use.

 

Schiff Hardin LLP has been selected for a 2018 NLR Go-To Thought Leadership Award for their coverage of Environmental law and regulations. With a steady stream of changes in the environmental regulatory landscape, the attorney-authors at Schiff Hardin provide NLR readers with timely and thorough analysis of developments as they occur.
