Benchmark Once Again Names BLB&G One of the Nation’s Leading Litigation Firms
The 2012 Benchmark Litigation Guide to America's Leading Litigation Firms and Attorneys, compiled by the publishers of leading financial news magazines Institutional Investor and Euromoney, has again, for the fifth consecutive year, recognized BLB&G as one of the leading litigation firms in the nation. BLB&G is the only plaintiff litigation firms based in the State of New York rated "highly recommended" by the guide.
Benchmark identifies the leading US trial attorneys and firms at the local and national levels. Focused exclusively on the US litigation market, the publication's rankings and editorials are the result of extensive interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.
According to the publication, BLB&G is "not only one of the most successful contingency fee plaintiff firms, with many record-setting verdicts and settlements to its credit, but it is also one of the only plaintiff firms to be almost uniformly praised by past and present opponents on the defense side." With peers referring to the firm as "premier," "preeminent," or "the cream," the guide provides that, "[o]ne defense lawyer even goes so far as to say, ‘Bernstein Litowitz has distinguished itself by staying levels above many of the other plaintiff firms', and by ‘putting forth some really compelling arguments. They've given firms twice their size a run for their money.'" Benchmark also documents clients praising BLB&G for its "wealth of experience and sterling reputation."
Individually, firm partners Max Berger, Sal Graziano, Blair Nicholas, Gerald Silk and David Stickney were recognized as "Litigation Stars" in New York and California while partner Chad Johnson was selected as a national litigation "star" for Intellectual Property Litigation.
