NEW YORK, September 20, 2010 - Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, one of the world's most prominent law
firms, is proud to announce the launch of the Cadwalader International Law
and Litigation Center, an on-line hub of information and perspective on
topics and trends in international law and litigation practice. The Center
offers a variety of in-depth information through a regularly updated eBook, a
practitioner's Blog, current news in law and practice and unique insight from
the vantage of highly accomplished specialists actively participating in the
development of law and policy in the field.

"As our markets have gone global, so too are the demands and complexities
of cross border legal practice and international litigation. The pace of
change is breathtaking, requiring constant attention to capture the many
developments in this diverse field. For businesses of all stripes,
globalization has exposed gaps in legal protection as it has encouraged new
means of redress. Understanding risk and opportunity requires constant
vigilance in the field. The creation of this International Law and Litigation
Center is a mechanism to stay vigilant and to disseminate the latest
developments in the law and the opportunities they create for our clients and
colleagues," stated Louis Solomon, Co-Chair of Cadwalader's Litigation
Department and Director of the new Center.

The International Legal Center can be found at: and will focus on international,
transnational, or cross-border business controversies including:

    - disputes involving companies, property (real, intangible,
      intellectual), or business practices affecting different countries;
    - disputes implicating the laws, legal practices, or regulatory regimes
      of different jurisdictions; and/or
    - disputes where different possible venues are available to pursue,
      defend, and resolve the disputes.

"I applaud the outstanding leadership and talent that combined to create
the International Law and Litigation Center," stated Christopher White,
Chairman of the firm. "These efforts not only add to the legacy of Cadwalader
as a firm that represents clients at the cutting edge of law and commerce,
but also demonstrate our deep commitment to the development of the law and
the highest standards of our profession," he said.
