Meet Jim Rouhandeh, the head of the litigation department at Davis Polk & Wardwell, who is based in New York. Rouhandeh was a finalist for The American Lawyer’s Litigator of the Year Award in 2018. That honor came after he won Litigator of the Week by persuading the Fifth Circuit to uphold Texas’ attorney immunity doctrine, scoring a defense win for law firm client Proskauer Rose from claims springing out of Allen Stanford’s $7 billion Ponzi scheme.
