They have taken on major legal battles and orchestrated the biggest corporate deals. They’ve tackled unpopular causes and helped run giant corporations.”
Bopp is described by the NLJ as a “litigation machine, methodically mowing down restrictions on campaign financing and speech.” They listed his strengths as legal results, “renowned for his or her ability to get results for clients,” and for though leadership, “known for cutting-edge commentary about legal issues.”
“I could not be more honored and humbled by this prestigious recognition. I have always strived to make a difference for my clients and for the conservative cause and I appreciate that my clients and my associates have given me this marvelous opportunity,” Bopp said.
