Salvatore Graziano Selected One of the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” in Nation by Benchmark

November 2015

Benchmark Litigation has named BLB&G partner Salvatore Graziano to an exclusive list identifying the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” in America. 

Since 2007, Benchmark has done extensive research on U.S. litigation law firms and celebrated the nation’s top trial lawyers in its directory.  In that time, Benchmark has determined that “trial work has become increasingly rare…the pool of lawyers equipped to attend to this work has been steadily shrinking, and…the opportunities for lawyers to gain experience and become seasoned by actual courtroom work have been decimated by the rise of alternative dispute resolution and out-of-court settlements. As a result, the divide between ‘litigators’ and ‘trial lawyers’ has widened considerably, with the latter group commanding ever increasing levels of reverence as masters of a seemingly endangered craft.”

To that end, Benchmark has utilized its research to assemble its list of the very best trial lawyers in the country.

Mr. Graziano, a former federal prosecutor and widely respected civil litigator, has long been recognized by Benchmark as a New York “litigation star” and as one of the country’s top trial lawyers by numerous other industry observers (including Chambers, Legal 500, Lawdragon, Law360 and Best Lawyers) as well.   

Benchmark Litigation is compiled by the publishers of leading financial news magazines Institutional Investor and Euromoney and identifies the leading U.S. trial attorneys and firms at the local and national levels. Focused exclusively on the U.S. litigation market, the publication's rankings and editorials are the result of extensive interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.
