METHODOLOGY

2019 “BEST LAW FIRMS” The U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “Best L aw Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and law yer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys, and review of additional information provided by law firms as par t of the formal submission process.

To b e e li g ib l e f o r a r a n k in g in a particular practice area and metro region, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers in that p r a c t i ce a r ea a n d m e t r o. Fo r m o r e information on Best Lawyers , please visit www.bestlawyers.com. For the 2019 “Best Law Firms” list, the methodology for the initiative remained the same as in the previous five years. Clients were asked to provide feedback on f irm prac tice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding

o f a b u s i n e s s a n d i t s n e e d s , c o s teffectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to the firm. Clients also had the option to write in the names of law firms with which they’ve worked on other mat ters and within practice areas beyond those on which they were asked by the submitting firm to comment. Some clients chose to write comments about their experiences with the law firms. These comments are for reference only and were not used as data points in the formal evaluation process. Lawyers also voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrit y, costef fectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm, and whether they consider a f irm a wor thy competitor. We aske d this group to vote o n law f ir ms t ha t have preeminent national presence within specified legal practice area(s) they know well. For the fifth year, a Law Firm Leaders Survey was implemented to provide personal insight on the legal landscape surrounding t h e na t i o na ll y r a n ke d practice areas. In addition to information from these sur veys, the rankings incorporate the 7.4 million evaluations of 58,108 in di v i d ua l l ea din g law ye r s collected by Best Lawyers in its most recent annual survey. In addition to lawyer and client feedback, law f irms were asked to provide us with general demographic and background information on the law firm and attorneys, and other data that speaks to the strengths of a law firm’s practice areas. All of the quantitative and qualitative dat a were combined into an overall “Best Law Firms” score for each firm. This data was then compared to other firms within the same metropolitan area and at the national level. Because firms were often separated by small or insignificant dif ferences in overall score, we use a tiering system rather than ranking law firms sequentially. The first tier in each metropolitan area includes those firms

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

that scored within a certain percentage of the highest-scoring firm(s); the second tier, those f irms that scored within a certain percentage of the next highest scoring firm(s), and so on. The national rankings were based on metropolitan rankings as well as on the number of offices each firm had with a metropolitan ranking and on the level of legal activity in each metropolitan area. The number of tiers included in each practice area or metropolitan area ranking varies. Of the 14,643 firms that were eligible to submit information for the ranking process, 14,120 firms, including a large number of oneperson firms, received rankings, and 9,235 of those firms received first-tier national and/or metropolitan rankings. Metropolitan areas are def ined by assessing the population of eligible law firms geographically to guarantee enough comparative data to produce accurate results. There are eight states that had high percentages of eligible law firms located in one large metropolitan area. Because there were also eligible law firms outside of those metropolitan areas, but not enough to create accurate results for separate metropolitan rankings, results were produced for the entire state. The states that fall into this categor y are: Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Utah. Practice area rankings were produced both nationally and within 188 metropolitan areas across the United States. Because some prac tice areas have minimal presence in particular legal markets, or because there was not enough data garnered for proper evaluation, some practice areas that are covered in our research are not represented in the national rankings or various metropolitan rankings. The 2019 “Best Law Firms” national rankings cover 75 practice areas, while as many as 122 practice areas are covered on the metropolitan lists. For the eighth year, one law firm in 74 of the 75 practice areas will receive the prestigious 2019 "Law Firm of the Year" recognition. Law Firms receiving the “Law Firm of the Year” designation have an impressive overall performance in our research of a given practice area, representing a significant showing in the 2019 U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” initiative. 

2018 term got underway on October 1, with the media spotlight focused on the naming of a successor to Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. On the docket itself, however, and away from the headlines, are a host of cases with important implications for the business community. In the context of smartphone apps, the Court will consider longstanding doctrines of standing to bring antitrust damages claims. It also will confront a number of questions about arbitration, including significant cases about class arbitration and the

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

relationship between arbitration and the courts. In the area of class-action procedure, the Court will address the way settlement funds can be distributed and the time in which to appeal the classcertification decisions of trial courts. The Justices also will delve into the interstices of securities laws, examining (in the context of a case that newly confirmed Justice Kavanaugh helped adjudicate below) when conduct that falls short of a “misstatement” can nonetheless lead to liability. Thus, in a season in which the Court has drawn attention mostly for its changing composition, the business community may find much to monitor in its decisions. Below are some key cases to keep an eye on


ANTITRUST

Having considered the application of antitrust laws to credit-card networks last year, the Supreme Cour t now turns to another modern technology. In Apple v. Pepper, plaintif f iPhone users claim Apple monopolized the market for iPhone app distribution by requiring developers to sell apps only through its App Store and collecting an allegedly supra-competitive 30 percent commission on each app sold. In response, Apple invoked the Illinois Brick doctrine, under which only direct purchasers of a product have standing to bring claims under federal antitrust law. According to Apple, app developers

pay the commission; therefore, only they can sue, even if they pass the commission cost on to app purchasers. The Ninth Circuit disagreed, holding that Apple—as the distributor to iPhone users—is the appropriate defendant. If the Court adopts the Ninth Circuit’s position, the scope of the Illinois Brick doc trine would diminish, leaving some online distribution platforms— and, potentially, other similar forms of distribution — at increased risk of co nsum e r anti tr us t li tigatio n . Conversely, a favorable decision for Apple would confirm that distribution plat forms involving third-par t y commissions fall within the doctrine.

ARBITRATION

The Supreme Court has a number of arbitration cases on next term’s docket. All stand to make a splash.

The Court’s decision could help lower courts better understand how to apply the Court’s prior class-arbitration decisions. • The FAA does not apply to “contracts of employment” for some categories of transportation workers. What about independent contractors? And is the applicability of this FAA exemption best treated as a question of arbitrability? In New Prime, Inc. v. Oliveira, the Supreme Court is poised to answer both these questions, with important implications for employment disputes in exempted industries.

POLICY IN ACTION CLASS ACTIONS

In Frank v. Gaos, the Supreme Court will address the permissibility of “cy-pres” distributions in class-action settlements. Cy-pres distributions are typically made to non-party organizations in class proceedings where it is not feasible to distribute the entire recovery to class members. In Frank, the parties reached a class settlement of $8.5 million, under which all net proceeds were awarded to third-party organizations selected by the defendant and class counsel. The petitioners argue that class settlements should never be certified under the premise that all recovery would be distributed via cy-pres. The respondents contend that nothing in the history or text of applicable federal rules bars such settlements. In Neutraceutical Corp. v. Lambert, the Supreme Cour t will review a

Ninth Circuit decision to accept a petition for discretionary review of a class-certification ruling outside of the 14-day period for filing such petitions prescribed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The Ninth Circuit concluded that it could apply an “equitable exception” to the 14day rule based on the appellant's counsel's oral statements to the trial court of his intent to seek appellate review. In the Supreme Court, the petitioner argues that the Ninth Circuit lacked the authority to extend the deadline because the 14-day deadline constitutes a “claim-processing rule” that is “mandatory and unalterable.” Respondent argues that the appeal was timely and, in any event, courts are free to craft equitable exceptions to claim-processing rules that are not considered jurisdictional.

Court is whether conduct not meeting the elements of a misstatement claim can nevertheless be pursued as a fraudulent-scheme claim. The Court may use this case to limit scheme liability claims available to private plaintiffs involving someone not “making” a misstatement. A decision in favor of the Commission, however, could blur the line between primary and secondary liability, with potential implications for Commission enforcement and significant implications for the plaintiffs’ bar. With Justice Kavanaugh now confirmed to the Court, his recusal could result in a 4–4 split among the Justices.

EVERYONE AGREES U.S. INFRASTRUCTURE IS IN LAMENTABLE SHAPE. Can Congress and the Trump administration muster the courage to do something about it?

T

HE ELECTION OF

Donald Trump spurred great excitement in the building industry on the presumption that the new administration—which knew a thing or two about big construction projects— would follow through on candidate Trump’s promise to signif icantly increase government spending on American infrastructure, which Republicans and Democrats alike have acknowledged is in need of a major overhaul. Conventional wisdom held that a new infrastructure bill would be one piece of significant legislation that could garner bipartisan support. I t was t h e re f o re dis a p p o int in g when Trump proposed no such plan in his initial round of legislative trial balloons. Not until February 2018 did he do so, pitching a bill that would

20

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

spend a repor ted $1.5 trillion on infrastructure. Although details were scant, the plan targeted $200 billion in federal funding toward projects with streamlined design, permit and construction rules; created sweeteners to entice state and local governments to contribute their own resources; and established tax incentives in the hope of encouraging $1 trillion of private investment in public works. Despite high hopes, to date Congress has failed to pass major infrastructure legislation, with the parties disagreeing over the balance of federal spending and private investment. There is also discord within the Republican caucus concerning the bill’s funding, with party leadership loath to raise taxes to help finance it in the wake of last year’s tax cuts. Current speculation is that the details won’t be hammered out until after the midterm elections, with no action on any front until early 2019. I n t h e m ea n t i m e, t h e Tr um p administration has sent mixed signals about its commitment to the country’s infrastructure. On the positive side, the president has proposed changes to the environmental-permit ting process, including a provision called “one agency, one decision,” which would assign a single federal agency to coordinate permitting decisions, with a goal of completing all permitting in no more than two years.


ISTOCK.COM/PALLADADESIGN

Additionally, this past May the Federal Transit Administration issued a “Final Rule” to allow grantees of federal transpor tation dollars to identif y FTA regulations or procedures that impede private investors or publicprivate par tnerships, and enable those entities to seek their waiver or modification. Congress is also considering increasing the amount of low-interest federal loans available to the states for critical water projects through the Environmental Protection Agency’s Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act. On the negative side of the ledger, the administration has proposed a cap on the Federal Highway Trust Fund that could effectively reduce financing for highway projects starting in 2020. This piecemeal approach is a far cry from the comprehensive program bruited by Trump during the 2016 campaign. Although there has been lit tle progress on the federal side, states, counties, cities, and other local governments appear to be embracing private participation in infrastructure development. Currently 38 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have some form of public-private partnership statutory authorization in place. Others are considering enacting or broadening their own P3 laws. Several more, including Florida and Virginia, have created state offices to

promote and educate local agencies about the P3 project-delivery model. A paper published last year by AIG made the case that the United States is the world’s largest emerging market for public-private partnerships. Indeed, P3 investment is still relatively new in the U.S., but seemingly every day the building-trade media report on additional resources being devoted to it. Consider Los Angeles, where Mayor Eric Garcetti has announced that the city will significantly expand its publictransit system via “28 by ’28”: a plan to complete 28 major road, transit, and bicycle projects before it hosts the 2028 Summer Olympics, with P3 projects a major component. L.A. recently awarded two big aviation-

investment to help create momentum for broad public-agency acceptance of P3 projects. P3 is not a panacea, of course. The federal government simply must step up as well. What form this might ultimately take is anyone’s guess, but the clock is ticking on the Trump administration and Congress to devise a plan to remedy years of infrastructure neglect. This will be dif f icult, no question, but such direct investment is a win-win—for the country as a whole and, politically, for both sides of the aisle. It is long past time to set partisan politics aside and make reasonable compromises to enact a comprehensive program to restore U.S. infrastructure to its rightful place among the best in the world.

“Despite high hopes, to date Congress has failed to pass major infrastructure legislation.” related P3 projects: a $4.9 billion “people mover” train and the world’s largest consolidated car-rental facility at LAX airport. Similar commitments have popped up throughout the U.S., with a number of me gaproje c t s under way — the reconstruction of LaGuardia Airport in New York perhaps chief among them.

WHEN THE LEVY BREAKS

TARIFFS ON CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS ARE CAPRICIOUS, UNPREDICTABLE, AND OFTEN SPECTACULARLY ILL-TIMED.

How can the industry prepare?

T

WICE THIS Y E A R —

in March and May— P r e s i d e n t Tr u m p issued proclamations imposing tarif fs on American impor ts of steel (a 25 percent levy) and aluminum (10 percent). Initially these charges applied only narrowly, but they’ve since been extended to nearly every country with which the U.S. trades. Also this spring, Trump imposed a 25 percent tariff on a variety of Chinese products, part of a measure to penalize China for its trade practices; as the year has progressed, more Chinese goods have been added. Most recently, on September 24 the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR), at the president’s direction, released a list of roughly $200 billion worth of Chinese imports subject

to still more tariffs. They went into effect immediately at 10 percent but will jump to 25 percent on January 1, 2019. On September 17, a week before, the U.S. Department of Commerce ha d ann o un ce d th e pre liminar y determination of its countervailing-duty investigation of the import of Chinese quartz surface products, noting that exporters received subsidies ranging from 34.4 to 178.5 percent. Commerce therefore instructed U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from impor ters of these goods; it is scheduled to issue a final determination next January 28. The construction industry, like any other, is greatly affected by commodity price fluctuations. Typical supply-anddemand cost adjustments are to be expected, and construction companies have a number of mechanisms to deal with them. The imposition of

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

tariffs, however, cannot be planned for, because it represents direc t government intervention that makes a nearly immediate impact on the price of the targeted goods. How can the industry cope? Of prime importance, as contractors and subcontractors enter into new contracts, is to negotiate an appropriate “tarif f clause,” or price-escalation provision, that counteracts the effects of such levies. For existing contracts without safety valves, however, recovery is a greater challenge, given that price increases sparked by tariffs are typically part of the contractor’s accepted risk inherent to lump-sum or guaranteedmaximum price contracting. Tariffs’ very nature, though, means some potential avenues for relief nonetheless remain.

Tax Provisions

Construction contracts may contain a provision allowing for recovery because of newly implemented taxes. The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), for example, is incorporated into many federal procurement contracts, and FAR 52.229-3(c) specifically provides that “the contract price shall be increased by the amount of any after-imposed Federal tax, provided the contractor warrants in writing that no amount for such newly imposed Federal excise tax or duty or rate increase was included in the contract price, as a contingency reserve or otherwise.”


Similarly, Section 3.6 of the American Institute of Architects AIA A201 (2017) General Conditions of the Contract for Construction states that “[t]he Contractor shall pay sales, consumer, use, and similar taxes for the Work prov ide d by th e Contra c tor that are legally enacted when bids are received or negotiations concluded, whether or not yet effective or merely scheduled to go into effect.” Under this provision, arguably, if a contractor remains obligated only to pay taxes that are legally enacted when bids are received or negotiations concluded, it is not obligated to pay any such taxes that emerge af ter the fact— such as Trump’s recent tariffs. In these circumstances, the contractor may be able to shift the burden of the new taxes to the project owner.

ISTOCK.COM/FEODORA CHIOSEA

Force Majeure

Force-majeure clauses in construction contracts are another means of recovery for tariffs’ price increases, but relief will largely depend on the terms negotiated for force majeure itself. Generally speaking, the concept refers to an unexpected event that prevents someone from doing or completing a task he or she had agreed to perform, and may excuse the party from having to do so altogether. Many standard construction agreements limit force-majeure recovery merely to an ex tension of the contrac t

time—and while an extension might help, it certainly won’t solve the price disparities the tariffs impose. Instead, provided an appropriate force-majeure provision exists, a contractor may be able to argue that its performance should be excused entirely. To succeed under this theory, however, the contractor would be required to prove that the cost increases made per formance impossible or commercially impracticable.

Delay Damages

Another means of recover y may be a contract provision entitling a contractor to damages because of an owner-caused delay. This requires the contractor to prove that the owner’s delay in design or material selection prevented the contractor from timely ordering of materials—which got more expensive in the interim once tariffs were imposed. A claim of this sort will necessitate a detailed review of project schedules and an assessment of when materials should (or could) have been ordered.

standpoint, though, in some cases the increases are so significant that enforcement of these terms might lead to a host of other issues, including failed performance. Ultimately, the starting point for any lawyer should be the negotiation and inclusion of an appropriate priceescalation clause that contemplates price increases resulting from tariffs— but if this is not an option, or if the contract has already been executed, a close look at other provisions may provide avenues for recovery or for excused performance.

“For existing contracts without safety valves, however, recovery is a greater challenge.”

Other Provisions

Frequently, construction contracts contain provisions that shift risk to other par ties (including subcontractors), and these should also be examined to determine whether another party ought to bear the risk of price increases spurred by tariffs. From a practical

A look at the problems and opportunities for Native American tribes amid the uncharted territory of legal sports betting.

14,

the U. S. Supreme Cour t issued a pre ce dent-set tin g decision invalidating the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, the federal statute that prohibited sports gambling. As a result of the Court’s decision in Murphy v. NCAA, Case No. 16-476 and 16-477, 584 U.S. __ (2018), states are now free to authorize sports betting within their jurisdictions, thereby opening the way for lawful wagering on sports overseen by a variety of Native American tribes. The decision will likely make a significant impact on tribes that operate gaming facilities in states where sports betting will be legalized. An estimated $100 billion–plus is wagered, legally and illegally, in the U.S. on sporting events every year, and tribes will be a critical stakeholder in the coming public debate over its expansion. Such betting is not clearly defined under the 1988 Indian Gaming

Regulatory Act (IGRA). However, the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) has defined Class III gaming to include “[a]ny sports betting and parimutuel wagering”—a stance echoed by former NIGC general counsel Kevin Washburn. 25 C.F.R. § 502.4(c). Give this designation, it’s likely that tribes cannot offer sports wagering in the absence of a tribal-state compact. If a state authorizes betting on sports for non-tribal parties, IGRA requires it to permit the identical activity for Indian tribes. 25 C.F.R. § 502.4(c). In some states, tribal-state compacts incorporate forms of lawful gaming adopted by the state subsequent to the execution of the compact by operation of law. In others, tribes have to negotiate an amendment to their existing compact that specifically incorporates sports betting under the gaming umbrella. In light of these considerations, tribes ought to begin to review applicable state laws to determine how they might lawfully offer sports wagering. In particular, they need to determine whether a compact renegotiation is required, and identify how it can be amended to expand the scope of permissible gaming. It might also be useful to determine if it’s in a tribe’s interest to pursue sports betting as a private commercial entity operating un d e r s t a te law. O f p a r a m o unt importance, though, is for tribes to assess the effect of legal sports betting


on the exclusivity protections within their compact. Tribes in states that do not currently allow sports wagering will have to determine whether they ought to engage in the public debate over its possible legalization. The end of federal prohibition also raises important questions about IGRA’s applicability. Sports betting within a tribal casino would be squarely within IGRA’s remit. Certain components of such gaming might take place off Indian lands, though, and it remains to be seen what position NIGC or the courts will take as to whether that constitutes Indian gaming under IGRA.

card proceeds) from patrons who place online bets from a state where it’s illegal to do so. The NIGC, the agency with primary jurisdic tion to enforce IGR A , has repeatedly held that games tribes host on their lands that incorporate an element of off-reservation gambling are not authorized by IGRA. Each previous NIGC decision, however, was made against the backdrop of gaming that would have violated the laws of the states in which of f-reser vation bettors were located. NIGC has issued no opinion on whether IGRA prohibits such gaming where the off-reservation

“An estimated $100 billion–plus is wagered, legally and illegally, in the U.S. on sporting events every year.” A further wrinkle: Given that sports wagering could well entail placement of bets via computer or phone, it’s also necessary to figure out whether such online gaming is prohibited under state and federal law. Likewise, do the Wire Act of 1961 and the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) of 2008 pose any barriers to tribal participation in sports betting? The former prohibits wagers on any sporting event from passing through interstate communication lines; the latter authorizes injunctive relief to prevent gambling business f rom accepting payments (including credit-

activity is legal. Tribes need to engage both the NIGC and the Department of the Interior to clarify these points. Given the obvious financial potential of spor ts bet ting and the speed with which this area is developing, it’s strongly advisable for tribes to expedite their review of state and federal requirements for participating in sports wagering. It offers a significant opportunity to expand tribal gaming businesses, but a thorough review of state laws, compact provisions, and relevant case law will help ensure that whatever course the tribes pursue ends up a safe bet.

(CFL)—even though the statute does not set an interest cap. The court was responding to a certified question from the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. This case opens the door a crack for consumer claims that high-rate loans are unconscionable, but the door will be difficult to push further. The court reiterated that an unconscionability claim requires fact-intensive inquiry regarding the circumstances of the loan, and that a loan must be both p ro ce dura ll y a n d subs t a nt i ve l y unconscionable to meet the standard. The court also acknowledged that unsecured loans to high-risk borrowers often justif y high rates. Moreover, the remedies available are limited to restitution and injunctive relief and do not include attorney fees or damages. The court observed that the “relative paucity of remedies…should serve to limit pure attorney-driven lawsuits (since no attorney fees may be recovered) as well as blackmail settlements (since no money recovery beyond restitution is possible).”

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

Although it did not specifically address bank partnerships, CashCall echoes in that space because of how it will affect rate exportation—the authority under which a national or state-chartered bank in one state may charge the interest rate permitted by its home state to a resident of another state, even if the bank’s home rate exceeds that permitted in the consumer’s state. CashCall af fects rate exportation because interest rates imposed by a bank exporting California’s interestrate authority appear to be limited by unconscionability concerns. It relies on the unconscionabilit y standard codified in California’s Civil Code, which is incorporated into the CFL. Although the CFL does not apply to banks, the California Civil Code does. Under regulations from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), meanwhile, banks’ exportation authority is limited by state law relating to “that class of loans that are material to the determination of the permitted interest 2 .” Accordingly, even when banks export interest from outside the CFL, they will be limited by the Civil Code’s unconscionability standard. CashCall is exciting because it has de cide d a n ew ques tion of California law. Although the decision’s implications for rate expor tation are impor tant, the case is unlikely to drastically alter banks’ lending operations, whether they’re lending to California consumers or under California law.

OCC and Fintech Charters

In July, the OCC announced that it will consider applications for national bank charters from fintech companies that conduct the “business of banking,”3 which includes the core functions of receiving deposits, paying checks, and lending money. Fintech companies must perform at least one of these to be eligible for a national bank charter as a special-purpose national bank (SPNB). With its announcement, the OCC released a policy statement and a supplement to its comptroller’s licensing manual, which sets out the considerations that apply to fintech companies. The supplement notes that newly chartered SPNBs will face more frequent and intensive supervision from the OCC in their early years. Additionally, because the OCC expects applications from fintech companies that do not receive deposits, the agency will impose certain conditions on approved applicants—conditions specific to SPNBs because such entities are uninsured by the FDIC. These strictures will provide extra protections for consumers, who will not be able to seek recourse against FDIC insurance in the event of loss. The agency will

require that a fintech company have a contingency plan to sell itself, wind down, or merge with a nonbank affiliate. SPNBs must also maintain a minimum capital level account for sufficient liquidity under stress. It remains to be seen which fintech companies will shoulder the burden of being among the first OCC charter applicants.

Federal and New York Reports

The Treasury Department and the NYDFS released reports this summer o n f inte ch a n d o n lin e l e n din g , respectively. Though each addresses bank partnerships, they offer opposing recommendations. The NYDFS repor t, released in July, called for equal application of consumer-protection laws to online lenders; application of the state’s usury limits to all lending in New York; and licensing and supervision for all online lenders.4 The NYDFS saw bank partnerships as a regulatory concern, disagreeing with the position that the bank is the true lender and that the nonbank entit y is thus not subject to New

“Bank-partnership arrangements have “enhanced the provision of credit to consumers and small businesses.” The NYDFS was particularly concerned with interest rates on financial products offered to New York consumers—and the authority of nonbank entities to charge those rates. On that issue, the department cited with approval Madden v. Midland (2017), 5 in which the Second U.S. Circuit Cour t of Appeals held that non-national bank entities that purchase loans originated by national banks cannot rely on the National Bank Act to protect them from state-law usury claims. The decision effectively disposed of the “valid-when-made” theor y, which loan assignees have relied on for years. Madden suggested that a nonbank entity that purchases such loans cannot continue to impose the rates for which the bank contracted with the consumer unless it holds its own independent rate authority. (In some states the nonbank entity must hold a license to impose the rate for which the bank contracted.) By contrast, the valid-when-made theor y had established that when an interest rate was valid when the loan was made, the rate could not later be deemed usurious based only on the subsequent holder’s lack of

Treasury also said bank regulators should reaffirm (through additional clarification of compliance and riskmanagement requirements, for example) that the bank remains the true lender under such agreements. It further recommended that states revise credit-services laws, which apply to traditional loan-broker businesses, to exclude companies that solicit, market, or originate loans on behalf of a federal depository institution under a partnership agreement.

Federal Legislation Stalls

N o t w i t h s t a n d i n g Tr e a s u r y ’s recommendation to codify the longestablished bank-partnership model, two bills that would do just that have not advanced since early this year. The House of Representatives passed the Protecting Consumers’ Access to Credit Act of 2017, 7 also known as the Madden bill, in Februar y 2018. It would codif y the valid-when-made doctrine and overrule Madden.

The True Lender bill provides that an economic relationship between an insured depository institution and a nonbank third par ty that performs lending func tions does not af fec t the determination of the institution’s location or its role as a lender. Regulators, legislatures, and courts are not in agreement—but that’s no surprise. They are all responding in the bank-partnership and fintech spaces, and the important thing now is to keep up with them.

GOING ALL IN

SUCCESS IN ANY LEGAL SPACE REQUIRES TOTAL COMMITMENT TO YOUR CLIENTS.

Here’s a meaningful mnemonic to help you get it done.

T

HE KEY TO S U C C E S S

for a law yer in the timber industry— or any industry, really— is to be all in. With extra emphasis, let’s call it ALL IN, in fact: an acronym for Adapt, Listen, Learn, Include, and Network. Clients need counsel who adapt to the situation at hand, design a solution that works for the client, and adjust tactics and overall strategy as new information emerges. Clients do not gain value from advisors who are locked into a preferred approach when the situation demands something different. Wo r k i n g o n t r a n s a c t i o n a l d u e d i l i g e n c e w i t h f o r e s t- p r o d u c t s companies, for example, I take each deal as the client presents it.

deal to deal. Acquiring an older pulp mill, say, presents different challenges for the due-diligence team than does selling a chip plant or distribution warehouse. Lawyers love to talk, but the key to achieving the best result for clients is to listen. Counselors must do so to identify the pertinent legal questions, cer tainly, but equally impor tant is listening for the business context and operational reality enveloping those questions. When I assist a client with permitting for a new lumber dry kiln or making an upgrade to a pulp digester, for example, I keep an ear open to the financial and operational effects of the proposal. I listen to operators discuss construction schedules and vendor requirements so the regulatory review doesn’t hinder progress. Be curious, ask questions, and learn what drives results at every level of the organization, and prepare your advice to support each one. A milllevel environmental manager may be driven to streamline records to avoid duplication and ensure compliance; the mill manager might focus on compliance and production demands; senior leadership might instead focus on reports to the governing board and shareholders, or on a future business strategy not yet widely known.


ISTOCK.COM/OSTAPENKOOLENA

Company representatives are proud of their operations, and operators want to work with counsel who know the difference between a dry kiln and a veneer dryer, a batch digester and a continuous digester, clean condensate and foul condensate. These days, the most meaningful compliments I receive come when the process engineers like what I have to say. Law firms are developing intentional diver sit y-and-inclusion programs cataly zed by client expec tations. These programs’ essence is to recruit diverse professionals and include them on client pitches, projects, and relationship teams. Advocates for women in the timber industr y are emerging, and trusted advisors can help promote change. Beyond gender and demographic diversity, staffing a variety of perspectives, life experiences, and personality types on problemsolving teams is proven to produce better results. Working for forest-products clients, I’m often the only woman on the team. When all other voices confirm the flow of discussion, an unexpected and relevant question from me can take the analysis in a new and valuable direction. Finally, the U.S. timber industry is tight-knit; use that network to add value for clients. While competitive with one

another and certainly familiar through trade associations, trusted advisors can connect like-minded leaders to facilitate collaboration where appropriate. Recent enforcement defense matters I’ve handled in the pulp-and-paper sector prompted me to network with forest-products companies and share my experiences. Clients appreciate the valuable information and the willingness to take time to communicate on a topic of interest. Connect people who can help one another—those with shared experiences, and those who will benefit from your gift of connection now or in the future. Build that kind of network and nurture it. If you’re all in for clients in timber, then you’re all in for any client anywhere. Lawyers working for the timber industry help build one of America’s sustainable natural-resource sectors and support a work force of proud, commit ted individuals. Going all in will help you do the same for your industry, too.

catalog business has b e e n b o o m in g f o r years—both in terms of the sale of individual writers’ catalogs and smaller entities being swallowed by larger ones. It’s a seller’s market, which has led to greater emphasis on lawyers’ and law firms’ devoting significant time to identify sales and purchasing opportunities. Lately, though, a growing number of industry insiders, mostly on the buy side, are saying the bull market has run its course. Has it? In the past few years, we’ve seen significant catalog sales including Concord’s acquisition of Imagem, Round Hill’s purchase of Carlin, Kobalt’s pickup of SONGS, and—perhaps the largest—Sony’s agreement this summer to buy an additional 60 percent share of EMI. Individual artists and writers have been active, too; notable recent catalog sales include Ryan Tedder’s to Downtown, Ashley Gorley’s to Round Hill, Ross Copperman’s to Rezonant, and Smokey Robinson’s to Primary Wave, among many others. Industry analysts and publications have floated a variet y of theories to explain this recent strength. One suggests that high sale prices reflect market reac tions to changes (or anticipated changes) in tax treatment

Another posits that anticipated increases in the royalties paid to songwriters and publishers under the new Music Modernization Act are partly responsible.

We believe the established players will always look for great catalogs, the supply of which is limited. The increasingly rosy forecast for licensing and streaming royalties (plus the basic law of supply and demand) suggest the strong market will go on. For those in this space, it will likely remain business as usual, with the end of the soundtrack—for the foreseeable future, at least—not yet remotely audible.

“We are, indeed, as likely to see catalog-sale bidding involving investment bankers and funds as we are to see the ‘usual suspects.’ ” All of these are true, to some extent, but the most significant fact might be the last one. Such “new money”— when added to that of the established players and the increasingly strong indies/mini-majors (Concord, Kobalt, and others)—has bolstered demand for a limited commodity. New ventures and established companies flush with cash are driving up bids for catalogs across a number of genres.

HEALTH CARE PRIME HOW WILL M&A SHAPE THE AMERICAN HEALTH INDUSTRY GOING FORWARD?

By adhering to the Amazon model.

T

H I S

I S

A N

e n o r m o u s l y signi f ic a nt p e r io d for American health care, as the industry’s ecosystem evolves at an ever-accelerating pace. Four factors—how health care is owned, organized, delivered, and paid for— provide a conceptual framework for understanding this rapid change. We call this the era of “Health Care Prime” because we recognized those four factors in Amazon’s announcement of its new health care venture with JPMorgan and Berkshire Hathaway earlier this year. Dealmaking and innovation are the most significant change agents in this new health care economy, and Amazon’s initiative will likely spur a considerable amount of both.

Understanding M&A and Innovation

The first six months of 2017 saw the announcement or consummation of 472 mergers-and-acquisitions health care deals, a record number. Over the same six months in 2018, the figure was 530, a 12.3 percent increase on the previous year’s record. We see no signs that this trend will slow anytime soon. As for innovation, the health care and technology sectors are integrating

34

their business models and diversify. Co m p a n i e s a r e e x p a n din g a n d collaborating along a dominant theme of the “integrated-care continuum.” The addition of ancillary service lines, joint ventures between providers and non-providers, and the blending of providers and insurers are illustrative of this shift.

in ways that now disrupt traditional health care rather than sustain it. New market entrants (such as Amazon), new health-delivery models (telehealth, for example), and new technologies (think artificial intelligence) are just a few of the recent innovations driving this health care transformation.

Delivery

Ownership and Organization

Consumerism

Complex federal and state regulatory schemes mean the main players in the traditional health care economy have long been health systems, physicians, insurers, drug manufacturers, and the U.S. government (Medicare and Medicaid). In the era of Health Care Prime, by contrast, opportunities will abound for nontraditional players to become owners in the health care market.

Private-equity ownership:

Ownership of health care ventures by private-equit y organizations is increasing significantly. Health care private-equity activity in 2017 reached $42.6 billion in disclosed value, and the number of deals rose to 265, up 17 percent from a year earlier. Inefficiencies in traditional health care deliver y and sector fragmentation make it highly attractive as a target for private-equity investment.

The integrated-care continuum:

Evolving market pressures are requiring health care participants to transform

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

Traditional settings for health care deliver y are rapidly changing, and companies are rapidly adopting from other industries a variety of models: virtual health, concierge medicine, urgent care, and employer on-site clinics. A growing sense of consumerism, with patients viewed as customers making choices about an array of health care options, is also occurring. Providers are giving patients the ability to choose how, where, and from whom they get their care. Indeed, many patients now demand the same convenience and transparency from their health care providers that they routinely get when buying other products and services.

The Shift from Inpatient to Outpatient Care

Care is increasingly shif ting from inpatient to outpatient set tings. Admissions for inpatient care have dropped 12 percent over the last decade, and one of every four hospitals now faces inpatient-care operating losses.

Payment

The standard payment model in health care has long been fee-for-


ser vice, in which more procedures mean more money and the fee has no relationship to the outcome. This is rapidly being replaced, however, by pay-for-performance, in which the fee is directly related to the quality of the care and the outcome.

Value-Based Care

Providers are rightly loath to accept outcome-based payment s unless they have the ability to control those outcomes. The obvious way for them to do so is via vertical consolidation, through which they capture the entire health care continuum. As care

At the same time, in a value-based environment, better outcomes lead to higher payments for providers, creating a virtuous circle.

Conclusion

This new era of Health Care Prime is patient-centered. The opportunities to improve patient care are exponential, as are the financial opportunities for those who lead the revolution. Innovation, along with mergers and acquisitions, will be the primary drivers of health care as this vast, vital industry moves from the fallow valleys of old ways to the sunny uplands of the new.

moves to a value-based payment environment, then, providers are likely to become boosters of the integratedcare continuum.

Data Revolution

The rise of big data is disrupting health care in all the right ways. This data revolution has the potential to improve patient outcomes dramatically.

TRACK CHECK

A broad-gauge look at the latest trends in U.S. railroad law.

S

TEPTOE & JOHNSON

LLP’s railroad practice is recognized in vir tually every area of rail regulator y activit y. The t e a m ’s e x p e r i e n c e i n high-profile cases gives it a thorough understanding of the complex and evolving issues in rail transportation law. We anticipate that over the next year federal appointments will prompt an uptick in rulemaking activity and that new trends, including short-line spinof f s and the development of innovative passenger rail projects, will continue to make news.

Open STB Slots Might Soon Be Filled

The U.S. Sur face Transpor tation Board is the federal agency tasked with the economic regulation of railroads. Its rulemaking activity has decreased somewhat in recent years due in part to three vacancies on its five-member board. A number of r ulemaking proceedings initiated by the STB before 2017 have been placed on hold until 36

those vacancies are filled, including ones concerning fuel surcharges, competitive access, regulatory exemptions, and alternative rate-regulation standards. President Trump recently named three individuals to complete the board. Those nominations have been approved by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, but as of this writing the full Senate has yet to act. Once a full board is in place, we expect that the STB will move forward on its pending regulatory proceedings.

A New Era of Rail Line Sales?

Partial deregulation of the American railroad industr y via the Staggers Rail Act of 1980 spurred many large railroads to divest unprofitable line segments to dozens of newly created short-line railroads. After this initial bur s t , line sales slowed as large railroads consolidated and sought to improve their financial health. Now, however, a new era of shor t-line spinoffs may be emerging.

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

In connection with a new operating plan focused on cost reduction, CSX Transportation has been evaluating its approximately 21,0 0 0 -mile rail network for potential sales to shortline operators. Earlier this year, CSX offered for sale eight separate line segments totaling more than 1,000 miles throughout the East. As of this writing, most of these sales have not yet gone through, and CSX may identif y additional divestible lines. Other large railroads looking to cut costs may follow suit.

Beyond Amtrak: The Future of Intercity Passenger Rail

Nearly a half-century ago, the federal government created the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (better known as Amtrak) in an ef for t to preserve U.S. intercity passenger rail as private railroads, facing bankruptcy, dropped service. Now a new generation of intercity projects has emerged to supplement Amtrak’s service. A number of higher-speed rail systems in various stages of planning are using a mix of public and private financing tools and innovative project delivery mechanisms. Some notables:

• California High-Speed Rail.

Approved by Golden State voters in 2008, this project is an ambitious effort, led by a state agency, to link San Francisco and Los Angeles in under three hours at speeds up to 220 mph. The initial 119-mile Central Valley segment, from Bakersfield to


Madera, is under construction, with completion targeted for 2022. The state plans to extend that segment north to San Francisco by upgrading existing track for a “Silicon Valley to Central Valley” line, ostensibly to be finished in 2029. Connections south to L.A. will likely follow; the current estimated cost for the entire route is $77.3 billion. Further connections to Sacramento and San Diego are possible, though numerous funding, engineering, legal, and political challenges remain.

• Brightline.

Backed by private equit y giant Fortress Investment Group, Brightline is the nation’s only privately owned and operated intercity passenger rail service. Despite some lingering p olitic al an d le gal opp osition , Brightline started service in early 2018

Most recently, Brightline announced the acquisition of XpressWest, a high-speed rail project with rights to develop a line along the I-15 corridor connecting Southern California with Las Vegas. Brightline has also indicated it would like to develop other intercit y projec ts across North America.

• Texas Central Railway.

Texas Central Partners has advanced plans to build a dedicated 240mile high-speed passenger rail line between Dallas and Houston using Japanese Shinkansen bullet-train technology. The latest cost estimates are in the $12–$15 billion range, with completion in 2024. The developers plan to construct and operate the line using private financing but have indicated interest in using federal government loan programs available

NATURE CALLS

LOOKING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AS A PRACTITIONER OF ENVIRONMENTAL LAW?

A

These seven pointers will help bolster your green bona fides.

SUCCESSFUL

e nv ir o n m e nt a l- law practice is made from a number of key ingredients. Some of them are common to all areas of a legal practice; others apply primarily to environmental law and related litigation. Some of the most important ones to keep in mind:

1. Know the difference between being the “decider” and being an advisor.

Recognize and embrace that all decisions are to be made by the client. Our obligation is to provide intelligent counsel to enable sound decision making—and equally sound execution thereof. Analyze the risks and benefits of all primary options so the client can make rational decisions at the earliest possible point. Develop a playbook with the client, then keep him or her regularly apprised of all developments.

38

2. Know the circumstances in which you’re the decider.

If you’re asked to act in an illegal or unethical manner, you can (and should) decide not to.

3. Appreciate the difference between advice and advocacy.

Offering advice requires a rational an d unbias e d as s es sm e nt of th e law an d th e re l evant f a c t s , th e n co m m un ic a t in g yo ur as s e s sm e nt clearly and dispassionately. A lawyer often provides advice before a client has made a decision to help the client determine how to ac t. This of ten entails identification of the various risks of different positions, followed by a recommendation based on this dispassionate judgment. A d v o c a c y, b y c o n t r a s t , o f t e n occurs af ter the client has already acted. It typically entails developing positions (and defenses) one might have considered high-risk, or that

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

a re in co nsis te nt w i t h t h e a d v ice one would have given before the client acted. Conflating advice with advocacy can lead to unnecessarily risk y advice, depriving the client of the opportunity to meaningfully assess the situation at hand. S ay yo u ’r e a ske d to p r o v i d e your thoughts on a regulator y interpretation — whether a cer tain change is a routine repair and therefore exempt from New Source Review (NSR), for example, or is a modification, which would trigger a complex NSR analysis. You’re given the underlying facts, which tend to support routine repair (the client is replacing an old air blower with a new one), but the change could just as easily be construed as beyond routine (the new air blower is larger and thus will increase production). If you conflate advice with advocacy, you might here fall into the trap of over stating advocac y, telling the client the project can proceed under the routine-repair paradigm. If you’re providing dispassionate advice, though, you’ll inform the client of the inherent uncertainty, then possibly help him or her find alternative approaches (replacing the blower with one of similar size, perhaps), determine whether there are other changes to offset any emissions increase, or proceed with NSR. (If you’re asked for this advice after the client has acted, of course, you’ll develop an advocacy position


while advising the client that the results are by no means certain.) Advice and advocacy are different things. Always distinguish between them.

4. Understand the consequences of your advice.

All advice has consequences, and your client is entitled to know what they might be. If you advise a client to sample property for contamination, say, that could lead to reporting and remediation obligations if significant contamination is found. Failure to sample, however, might lead to future claims if contamination were to migrate off-site. Any advice you give should assess the consequences if the client either takes or rejects your input.

ISTOCK.COM/FILO

5. Develop subject-matter expertise, build on it, and expand to other areas.

Environmental law consists of more than a dozen statutes, thousands of regulations, and an immense amount of guidance and lore. Clients are typically generalists who rely on counsel for our breadth of knowledge. Mastery of a single area—air law, water law—takes time. If possible, focus on one area of the law for several years. That will help you master it quickly and enhance your value to clients earlier in your career. Then refine and build on your expertise by expanding into other areas, which will improve your knowledge base and your client value alike.

6. Develop negotiation and litigation tools.

The practice of environmental law often entails application of knowledge in adversarial contexts such as negotiation and litigation. You will likely be required to make presentations to counsel for opposing parties, to regulators, to mediators, and—if you also litigate—to a court.

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

THE POWER OF TWO MORE HEALTH CARE COMPANIES THAN EVER SEE THE VALUE OF ROBUST PARTNERSHIPS IN A CONSTANTLY CHANGING INDUSTRY.

Here’s how to make sure the collaboration is seamless.

S

EISMIC NEW FORCES—

technology, value-based agreements, fresh industry players, and many more— are creating major shifts in health care, prompting companies of all sizes to collaborate in sometimes unexpected ways. Among payers and providers in particular, we’ve seen 22 partnerships1 emerge in the first half of 2018 alone, according to an analysis from the consulting firm Oliver Wyman Health—only six fewer than occurred throughout all of 2017. To thrive—even just to survive—in this new environment, those in the health industry are recognizing the need to rethink the strategic norms that have guided them for years, exploring the benefits of both collaboration and conglomeration. Nontraditional health care companies seeking to enter the market, too, are increasingly realizing those benefits as they get more familiar with the fiendishly complex health care landscape. Many see opportunity in health care but lack sufficient knowledge of reimbursement structures

and regulations, privacy and security concerns, and patient-safety stipulations to enter the market effectively—which makes working with an experienced partner that much more appealing. Success in an increasingly collaborative health care environment requires understanding the industry’s drivers for change as well as what its new participants have to offer. It’s critical, too, to understand the potential pitfalls when organizations work to implement a cross-industry collaboration.

A Shifting Conversation

For many years, the United States has struggled to contain the costs of insurance and health care services. Indeed, the United States spends a disproportionate amount on health care2 relative to its wealth. This generates additional pressure on health care companies to control costs from the public, the media, and the government. In response, payers increasingly focus on “value”—frequently through expanding the group of parties subject to financial risk for care as well as the

quality of care. This has required provider organizations, the financial stability of which has traditionally been determined by volume and rates for services rendered, to refocus on new metrics for success, while simultaneously needing to operate under the still dominant “fee for service” model. Consumer demands for a more responsive health care system, meanwhile, put pressure on both payers and providers to improve its service and engage more meaningfully with its “customers.” Forward-thinking tech companies and management teams are looking to satisfy these demands innovatively through means including enhanced use of consumer-oriented information technology. Faced with these pressures, health care players recognize that they might not be able to make all changes alone. As such, many of them are looking to partner with others who have the necessary expertise and resources rather than attempting to build them themselves when budgets are already stretched thin. Collaborations of this sort bring rapid change—and show tremendous promise—for the entire industry. By acting on these new possibilities and working together, companies are proactively bringing about muchneeded change in a shifting marketplace.

Pillars of Success

While new collaborative models hold great promise to change the delivery of health care, the collaborations themselves must also work, which


ISTOCK.COM/ EVTUSHENKO_IRA, WINNIEVINZENCE

goes well beyond simply signing a well-drafted contract. Any company embarking on a new tie-up like this must focus on these three pillars of success: 1. Scope. Collaborations can suffer from “mission creep” even during initial discussions, as the parties learn more about each other and recognize potential oppor tunit y. Successful partnerships are generally designed around a specific, actionable mission— and while exploration of other potential collaborative benefits is usually a good idea, it shouldn’t come at the expense of the collaboration at hand. Failure to stick to that can lead to unrealistic expectations, unachievable goals, and confusion during negotiations. Staying focused on the goal at hand takes discipline, and it’s critical to success. 2. Compliance. Organizations outside the health care industry may have limited experience with the unique risks its regulatory structure creates. This experience gap sometimes produces not just confused expectations with respect to deal structure and partnership goals, but also problems in the transaction process itself as the two groups talk past each other. It’s vital that both health care and non-health care companies recognize their differences of experience and approach the negotiations, deal structuring, and business planning with a suitable focus on compliance and their respective levels of risk tolerance. 3. Culture. Cultural fit is often crucial to partnership success. Within the broader industry, cultural differences

among for-profit and nonprofit health systems, payers, physician practicemanagement firms, and others can be dramatic; the difference between traditional health care and technology firms can be even more so. These differences need not be deal killers— rather, an understanding of them is often all that’s required to avert conflict. That can also lead to recognition of opportunities and benefits the parties might not have considered. In these circumstances, even if problems arise, including “scope creep,” the groups can address them on the basis of mutual understanding and respect. A relationship built on trust is a primary component of the glue that holds any collaboration together.

and beyond—and with it, most likely, a somewhat lesser spike in failures. As more organizations realize that their work could be amplified with a partner by their side, keeping all of the above in mind will help provide peace of mind to all parties that their collaboration will not end up one of the failures.

Trial, Error…and Ultimate Success

While it can be thrilling to get caught up in the excitement of new capabilities and oppor tunities in health care partnerships, it’s important to remember that the increasingly c o l l a b o r a t i v e s e n s i b i l i t y w e ’r e witnessing isn’t always elegant. More often, these endeavors are driven by experimentation, and with no established “right” way of doing things. In this trial-and-error environment, it can be easy to overlook details as simple as due diligence. Given the trajectory of technological and innovative advances in health care, we can expect to see the number of partnerships continue to spike in 2019

NO ONE AT THE WHEEL Will autonomous vehicles drive employers crazy?

A

RE AUTONOMOUS

vehicles (AVs) on the verge of transforming e ve r yd a y l i f e? A convergence of trends makes it a vir tual cer t aint y. Those trends are both technological (elec trif ication and connectivity of vehicles, plus better artificial intelligence) and social (greater urbanization, a demand for immediacy, and increasing comfort with unusual new ser vice models, as companies like Airbnb proliferate). Throw in their environmental, safety, and economic benefits, and it’s simply a question of when, not if, AVs will become a common sight on our streets. Anticipating the numerous legal issues such te chnolo g y present s , many g e n e ral- p ra c tice law f ir ms have established AV practice groups, w hich ten d to fo cus on broa der, more general issues such as safet y regulations, IP licensing, and productliabilit y concerns. AVs present abundant concerns for employer s too, however — for companies in the AV industr y, of course, but plenty of others as well. As such, Fisher Phillips, a national

42

labor-and- employment boutique, recently launched its Autonomous Vehicles Practice Group, comprising 24 attorneys who can draw on deep experience in a number of critical practice areas:

Data Privacy and Cybersecurity.

To ensure maximum safety, AVs will need to communicate with one another, w i t h s u r r o u n d i n g i nf r a s t r u c t u r e , and with a hos t of technological plat forms. (See also “Government Contract Compliance,” below.) Given widely held worries about hacking, data privacy and cybersecurity are therefore enormous concerns. AV companies, along with any business whose employees use its vehicles, will need to identif y information v uln e r a b l e to a b rea ch , p re p a re response plans, pinpoint applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, ensure protection across the supply chain, and train employees to spot and respond to future breaches.

Workplace Safety.

Increasingly prevalent in industrial settings, AVs present unique safety

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

concerns that firms must address to avoid accidents and citations under OSHA’s machine-guarding standards and general-duty clause. Companies need lawyers with the relevant depth of experience to highlight these safety concerns and of fer advice on how best to address them.

Employee Defection and Trade Secrets.

Billions of dollars have been spent d e ve l o p in g AV te ch n o l o g y, a n d those stakeholders must protect the confidentialit y of their information. This requires prevention and, potentially, litigation. Prevention: The AV industr y is by def inition technology-based and information-driven, and depar ting employees present risks of tradesecret thef t and unfair competition. Likewise, companies of ten share sensitive information throughout the supply-chain continuum, and they must ensure that they adequately protect that data via carefully drafted, enforceable contracts. They must also audit and update all applicable internal policies and procedures, train their employees, and ensure they have ef fec tive physical and elec tronic securit y controls. Litigation : T h e t r a d e - s e c r e t litigation filed by Alphabet’s Waymo, concerning a former employee alleged to have stolen thousands of documents, typifies the threat. These matters frequently include emergency


applications for injunctive relief, and require attorneys who are accustomed to rapid deployment to initiate or defend temporary restraining-order actions in any location with lit tle advance notice.

Labor, Unionization, and Collective Bargaining.

Companies that use AVs will be able to reduce the number of workers they employ in driving occupations—so unionized firms need to plan ahead to address these reductions, negotiating terms in new collective-bargaining agreements that will accord them more flexibility when the time comes. As has happened with automation in manufacturing, unions are certain to fight the loss of these jobs. Companies need to prepare now.

ISTOCK.COM/FILO

General Employment.

AVs have been called “of fices on wheels,” and any hourly employee using one as a place to get work done presents a wage and time-clock conundrum. Likewise, some employers will need to reconsider whether driving is an “essential function of the job” when providing accommodations for disabled employees. Workers who are unable to drive for medical or religious reasons may see AVs as legitimate accommodations.

Government Advocacy.

AVs’ increasing presence promises to increase businesses’ need for

ef fective legislative and regulator y advocacy at both the state and federal level concerning the issues already discussed: data privacy, labor wage/ hour, workplace safet y, and more.

Government Contract Compliance.

Vehicle-to-infrastruc ture communication ( V2I) ent ails the exchange of safety and operational data between vehicles and the transit infrastructure that suppor ts them. Enormous infrastructure upgrades will b e ne e de d, but the fe deral and s t ate government s lack the technical exper tise to implement these changes, making par tnership with the private sector imperative.

governments also impose affirmativeac tion compliance requirements.

Private Equity and Venture Capital.

Acceleration of the AV industry will be propelled by private equit y and venture capital. This means investors who manage por t folio companies will need to ensure that any newly acquired businesses comply with employment laws and have welldrafted equity-based compensation arrangements to help them secure top talent. Like all technological advances before them, in short, AVs are likely to drive employers craz y. Forward-thinking law firms can help them rise to the challenge.

“As has happened with automation in manufacturing, unions are certain to fight the loss of these jobs.

CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE

To truly flourish, the smart cities of tomorrow must harness their data—but make sure they are doing so legally, ethically, and securely.

I

T IS POURING R AIN.

An 18-wheeler misses a turn and collides with a bus, injuring 50 passengers who now need urgent care. How to locate quickly emergency facilities that can dispense specialized care to such a large group? Where to find the ambulances or helicopters to transport them? What is the shortest route? How can ambulances avoid flooded areas or traffic jams? Imagine a bustling city that keeps current information about such things. A city where the police can use intelligent systems to manage traffic lights and road signs. Where sensors are installed to identify flooded zones. And where all this crucial information is accessible from a single command center. You’ve arrived in Smart City. A smart city is one that relies on telecommunications, net works, connected devices, data analy tics, ar tif icia l inte llig e n ce, a n d ot h e r technologies to process large amounts of data for the benefits of its residents. How does it do this?

transportation, traffic signals, rushhour traffic patterns, even sanitation. This data is gathered by networked devices—cameras, drones, sensors— and then transmit ted via telecom, broadband, and Wi-Fi to be processed in the cloud. A multitude of intelligent s y s tems th en dis tr ibutes ne e de d information to all necessary parties. Ma j o r ci t i e s a r o un d t h e gl o b e are already using many of these technologies: smar t water meters, intelligent streetlights, net worked road signs. Gunshot detectors, linked surveillance cameras, and license-plate readers are already available to law enforcement. In Barcelona, for example, smart garbage bins send a signal to the city’s department of sanitation when they are full. In London, to address traffic congestion, smart technology prompts traffic lights to respond in favor of buses. Systems like this can be managed separately, or integrated so they can be used in concert when coordinated efforts—such as our hypothetical bus accident—are imperative.

The Participants

Specialized hardware, software, and telecom capabilities are necessary to collect and process data to ensure key players can make informed decisions. Ci t y a ge n cies might sub contra c t specialized services to third parties via a services agreement or publicprivate partnership. Financing could

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

come from traditional government appropriations or through private entities that invest in infrastructure and which might be compensated over time—by receiving a percentage of any revenue the project ultimately generates, for example. For example, a city may partner with a financier and a street furniture manufacturer to provide and maintain bus shelters and park benches for the benefit of the city’s residents in exchange for a share of the revenue generated from advertising showcased on the street furniture.

Big Data Needs Strong Protection Security, Confidentiality, Integrity

All this modern magic requires access to significant amounts of data, —data that must be protected at all times, whether in use, in storage or in transit. Technical challenges abound any time a large system is connected to subsystems operated by third parties. In March 2018, Atlanta was the victim of a ransomware attack that spread through the city’s network, shutting down, for several days, crucial departments such as Revenue (payment of water bills and parking tickets), the Police, and the Court system. This incident made manifest the signif ic ant c y b er se cur it y r isk s a smar t cit y takes on, underscoring the impor tance of proper security


controls, backup strategies, and upto-date protections.

Privacy

Ubiquitous license-plate readers, facial-recognition sof tware, mobile devices, and a host of other technologies enable the collection of data and identifiers that can link accumulated data to individuals— personal information, in other words. A number of state and federal laws govern the use of such per sonal information, and people expect to be informed when their personal information is collected. What is the best way to do this, though, when so much data is gathered from so many sources so quickly? Who has the right to access it, and what about its potential secondary uses? Could license-plate data initially compiled to count traffic, say, be repurposed to profile specific individuals? When should the information be anonymized or deleted?

Legal Issues, Legal Strategies, Legal Solutions

With so many par ticipants and tools being put to such a wide range of purposes, legal issues proliferate, beyond even the fact that a town or city administration is a primar y party to these contracts. Given the stakes, due diligence is imperative to investigate the financial strength

of the par ticipants, the technical performance and connectivity of their systems, and their ability to ensure adequate securit y and withstand criminal attacks. Contract terms should address security, incident-response planning, data disposal, and insurance and delineate key operational factors such as technology licenses, escrow, maintenance, and upgrades. In addition, because data (both personal and non-) is essential to the operations of smart-city services, contracts must address the parameters of their collection and use. Who owns the gathered information? Who owns the results once the data is processed? Who has responsibility for all this, and who is liable in the event of a ransomware attack? For that matter,

Smart Cities Need Smart Procedures

Cities are becoming smarter, and the acquisition and operation of systems like those described above raise numerous legal, ethical, and financial issues. Who owns, controls, and is responsible for the collection, processing, use, dissemination, and disposal of this data is the all-consuming question that must be dealt with in every plan, every contract, every interaction with the public. Only then can the benefits from large-scale use of personal and nonpersonal information outweigh the very real risks involved in its collection.

INTERNET SPEECH IN THE CROSSHAIRS

Charges of anti-right bias notwithstanding, online platforms are on solid ground when they defend their policies and procedures as neutral and protected by the First Amendment.

A

C C USATIONS T H A T

prominent online platforms are stifling conser vative voices have been much in the news lately—accusations that have turned into threats of investigations or enforcement actions. In late August, President Trump tweeted that various platforms are “suppressing voices of Conser vatives,” pledging that this “ver y serious situation will be addressed.” In September, Attorney General Jef f Sessions convened a meeting of state attorneys general to discuss whether the plat forms a r e “h u r t i n g co m p e t i t i o n” a n d “intentionally stifling the free exchange of ideas.”

46

The companies in question have forcefully denied any anti-conservative bias in the operation of their algorithms or application of their community standards. Their algorithms, they say, are neutral tools for sorting and classifying information online, and their standards aim to create a safe environment, not to squelch particular views. If litigation or enforcement nonetheless materializes, however, among the most significant issues that regulators, litigants, and courts will confront is whether the First Amendment prohibits second-guessing the platforms’ decisions about what content to disseminate. (Disclosure: The authors of this article represent various online providers in matters presenting these and similar issues.)

U.S. News – Best Lawyers “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2019

The First Amendment Argument.

The Supreme Cour t has long recognized that the First Amendment protects not only the right to publish one’s own speech but also the “exercise of editorial control and judgment” that, for example, a newspaper undertakes in deciding whether to publish third-party submissions. Miami Herald Pub. Co. v. Tornillo, 418 U.S. 241, 258 (1974). Online ser vice provider s , the argument goes, exercise the same editorial judgment when adopting and enforcing community standards for speech on their platforms, or when designing and applying algorithms to filter and classify that speech. Such judgments are simply the digitaleconomy version of a bookstore or newsstand deciding which books or magazines to carry, or a cable operator assessing whether and when to air particular programming—and are just as entitled to First Amendment protection as those decisions. Accusations that anti-conservative bias motivates these judgments in no way diminish the platforms’ First Amendment rights. “[W]hether fair or unfair,” the Supreme Court held in Miami Herald, the First Amendment protects the right to choose what “material”


to present. Indeed, if the accusations were accurate (contrary to what the companies have maintained), that would strengthen the First Amendment argument because such “political expression” triggers the most robust level of First Amendment protection. See McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Comm’n, 514 U.S. 334, 346 (1995).

ISTOCK.COM/CIGDEMHIZAL

Against the First Amendment.

Critics of this First Amendment argument respond that online platforms are not distributors of other people’s speech (the way newspapers, bookstores, and cable operators are), but rather operators of a public forum for expression. For these critics, the key precedent is not Miami Herald but Pruneyard Shopping Center v. Robins, in which the Supreme Court held that the First Amendment did not prevent a privately-owned shopping mall from being forced, under state law, to permit members of the public to solicit signatures and distribute political pamphlets in the concourses of the mall. 447 U.S. 74 (1980). According to this counterargument, the real free-speech right at stake is that of online users who lose access to these public forums. The only free-

speech interest that the platforms possess, this viewpoint holds, is that the public might mistakenly attribute a message written by a user to the platform itself. As with the mall in Pruneyard, though, that limited speech interest can be accommodated fully by online providers “publicly dissociat[ing] themselves from the views of the speakers” they host. 447 U.S. at 88. G e n e r a l l y, c o u r t s t h a t h a v e confronted these or similar issues have affirmed that online service providers have a robust First Amendment right to decide how best to arrange and display (or not display) third-party content on their platforms. See, e.g., Zhang v. Baidu.com, Inc., 10 F. Supp. 3d 433 (S.D.N.Y. 2014). Though they now arise in a new, more highly charged context, we expect courts to answer these questions in the same way as the Southern District of New York did in Zhang v. Baidu here: Secondguessing platforms’ algorithms or community standards would “‘violate[] the fundamental rule of protection under the First Amendment, that a speaker has the autonomy to choose the content of his own message.’” Id. (quoting Hurley v. Irish-American Gay, Lesbian, & Bisexual Group of Boston, 515 U.S. 557 (1995)).

“Their algorithms, they say, are neutral tools for sorting and classifying information online, and their standards aim to create a safe environment, not to squelch particular views.”

virtually every practice area. To truly succeed in client development and retention, lawyers today must be more than just skilled technicians. More than ever, clients now look for value in their legal representation. That doesn’t mean the lowest price. Instead, each client typically now has a unique definition of value that aligns with his or her core business strategy. Value can correlate directly with price, of course, but more often it’s a matter of price certainty—a concrete plan on which the client can rely and budget accordingly. Value can also encompass cost control, risk sharing, creative solutions, innovation, and the overall performance of the law firm. While many clients default to the traditional hourlyrate model, many others adopt fee arrangements that create a partnering or success-based approach to put a price on a given legal service. For this to work, however, both client and lawyer must be committed to working through any problems that might arise. Value can also stem from something as basic as assigning the right lawyer— or non-law yer, for that matter—to the proper tasks in the interest of efficient delivery of services. Clients


understandably expect law firms to abide by the same principles under w h i ch t h e y (a n d a ll t h e ir ot h e r suppliers) operate. There is likewise great value, to say the least, in having a clear understanding of the client’s objectives from the outset: Is early case assessment and resolution the goal, or is the matter so important to the client that the law yer should leave no stone unturned? Communication regarding these points is a critical component of a successful partnership—and that often means a lawyer needs to ask, not simply assume. Consider, too, a client’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, and his or her desire to field a team reflecting a similar commitment on the part of the law firm. Also basic blocking and tackling: promptly responding to phone calls, emails, and texts; following the client’s billing and budgetar y guidelines; keeping the client informed; being sensitive to the demands that inhouse counsel have on their time; and

avoiding surprises. Even the most skilled lawyer who doesn’t return client calls, or who otherwise fails to communicate properly, may find that the phone stops ringing altogether. In order to truly understand clients’ value proposition, then, it’s crucial for attorneys to take time to learn which primary issues affect clients’

The plain fact is that, especially in today’s competitive market, it is a privilege for a lawyer to be asked for legal representation. This privilege is fragile, however. The key to long-term professional success as both a lawyer and a relationship manager is to understand each client’s value proposition—then meet or exceed those expectations.

Several key questions to consider: Which components of representation and billing are of the greatest value? What are clients’ pet peeves? How can an attorney add value in this particular case?

sk Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder attorney Michael Koskoff what his father—the legendary trial attorney Theodore “Ted” Koskoff—would say if he could see how the firm he founded some 80 years ago has continued its legacy of justice for the everyday person, and his answer is simple. “He’d say he was proud,” says Koskoff, himself a stalwart member of the Connecticut legal community who has made it his life’s work to correct imbalances of justice through the legal system. “There’s nothing more gratifying than helping people cope with the tragedies that change their lives. When you take someone with no hope and give them a way to survive—it’s indescribable.” The firm has long been known for its willingness to accept cases that others might reject; indeed, its lawyers thrive on challenges and work collaboratively to obtain outcomes beneficial to not just the individual client, but society as a whole. Over the course of its history, Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder has taken on seminal medical malpractice, wrongful death, birth injury, civil rights, abuse of power, and sexual abuse cases that have had wide-ranging impact. The firm is currently handling Sandy Hook litigation on behalf of 10 families who brought wrongful death suits against gun manufacturer Bushmaster, as well as other defendants. The firm is equally committed to the legal community, with a number of its attorneys serving as past and present leaders of prominent organizations. Attorney Kathleen Nastri is past-president of the American Association for Justice, the world’s largest trial bar, and managing attorney Jim Horwitz is past-president of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association. Many of the attorneys at Koskoff have been recognized by Connecticut Magazine as Super Lawyers and 12 of their attorneys were recognized in the 2019 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©. “Our firm has made significant progress in helping bring the disenfranchised out of the shadows and to the attention of society in general,” says Koskoff. “It’s part of the fabric of the firm.” Finding oneself in the midst of a medical malpractice, personal injury, civil rights, or commercial litigation case can be overwhelming and disconcerting, to say the least. Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder welcomes its clients with arms wide open, offering them the closure they so desperately need in order to put a traumatic situation behind them. “We began as a family firm,” Horwitz says. “We work together that way, and we treat the people who come here, who seek our help, as family. That’s a very big part of who we are.”

KOENIGSBERGER*, DEAN DUSSIAS* *RECOGNIZED BY BEST LAWYERS® FOR THEIR WORK IN FAMILY LAW IN CHICAGO.

hen principals Michael Koenigsberger, Steven Wittenberg, and Dean Dussias came together to found Dussias Wittenberg Koenigsberger LLP, their focus was on building a firm to serve the interests of today’s high net worth clients and their spouses. “Our approach is suited to today’s executives, business owners, high achievers, and their spouses, for whom work life and personal passions are very much intertwined, so we moved away from the traditional law firm structure that organizes lawyers into separate departments,” says Dussias. Indeed, while conventional wisdom holds that family law practices should keep their work separate from the realm of business law, 21st century entrepreneurial ventures, complex ownership structures, estate plans, and dual-career families often require legal services and strategies that cut across multiple disciplines. “We draw on backgrounds in accounting, finance, business valuation, and taxation to take a business-minded approach to complex family matters,” says Wittenberg. “We take on the most financially complicated, challenging cases and approach them with a rigorous analytic mindset.” The f irm does not organize itself into depar tments or

practices but instead creates teams with the right combination of skills for each engagement, along with a client-personalized communication system designed to avoid confusion around which lawyer to call with which kind of question. Koenigsberger says this is about efficiency and responsiveness, but also something more. “We never lose sight of the emotional side of our clients’ experiences. We’re often encountering them at difficult moments, so it’s incumbent on us to make things easy where we can.” The three founding partners, once competitors and now colleagues, have received virtually every accolade and award available to family law attorneys over the course of their separate careers between them. Still, they believed they could do even better together. “We’ve long had similar approaches to this work, focusing on what’s fair without being unnecessarily contentious,” says Dussias. “It made sense for us to join forces and build a firm that makes the most of our deep experiences and shared philosophies.” As partners, they agree that professionalism and collegiality go a long way toward helping their clients navigate changes in their personal and business lives.
