Partner Diane Sullivan has been selected by The National Law Journal as a “2017 Winning Litigator,” an honor extended to 22 litigators nationwide.
The National Law Journal recognized Ms. Sullivan among the elite attorneys who “scored big victories for their clients in high-stakes cases,” highlighting the unanimous defense verdict she secured for Philip Morris USA in a pivotal medical monitoring class action suit. Following a three-week jury trial in Massachusetts, the verdict and subsequent dismissal avoided more than $600 million in potential damages and concluded a ten-year legal battle.
The profile published in a special report also notes Ms. Sullivan’s prowess at cross-examination as well as her ability to distill and simplify complex issues in a compelling way that connects with jurors. Ms. Sullivan was previously named as “Litigator of the Week” by The AmLaw Litigation Daily for her performance at the trial.
