Blank Rome Named 2022 Pennsylvania Powerhouse by Law360

Blank Rome LLP is pleased to announce that our firm has been named a 2022 Pennsylvania Powerhouse by Law360, which recognized Blank Rome in its list of 2022 Regional Powerhouses. Blank Rome is one of four Pennsylvania Powerhouse firms recognized for their work and "commitment to the Keystone State and its mature legal market" over the past year.

As a 2022 Regional Powerhouse, Blank Rome is recognized for "handling some of the biggest deals and most high-profile courtroom battles" and "offering clients regional expertise and making a lasting impact on the law at the state and local level." 

Below is an excerpt from Blank Rome’s 2022 Pennsylvania Powerhouse profile, as published by Law360 on August 2, 2022.

Pennsylvania Powerhouse Profile Excerpt:

Blank Rome LLP this year scored a string of big wins for clients in high-stakes litigation, including clearing the National Collegiate Athletic Association of liability in the first collegiate athletic concussion case and securing a defense victory for Johnson & Johnson in talc litigation.

Additionally, Blank Rome represented PPG Industries in a patent infringement suit brought by Sherwin-Williams, resulting in the invalidation of five of the paint giant's patents. The winning run of cases has earned the firm a spot on Law360's list of Pennsylvania Powerhouses of 2022.

Strong working relationships within the firm and a sense of esprit de corps are what keep Blank Rome at the top of its game, according to Daniel E. Rhynhart, co-chair of the firmwide litigation department.

The firm, which was founded in 1946 in Philadelphia by Jewish lawyers who faced discrimination by not being allowed into other firms, according to Rhynhart, has grown into a national force.

More than 200 of the firm's 650 attorneys are based in the firm's Philadelphia and Pittsburgh locations, and the rest span offices in New York, Washington D.C., California, Texas, Illinois, Florida, Ohio, New Jersey, Delaware and Shanghai.
