Weil’s Litigation Department received exemplary recognition across practices and offices in the recently released 2018 edition of Benchmark Litigation, a guide to leading litigation firms and attorneys in the United States.
Highlighting the Firm’s reputation as an “undisputed legal services powerhouse” that “draws praise for its litigation capacity” and “often-mention practitioners,” Benchmark Litigation ranked Weil as a top-ranked national Tier 1 firm in the areas of Antitrust, General Commercial, Intellectual Property, and Product Liability, and as a leading national firm in the areas of Bankruptcy and Securities Litigation. The publication also recognized Weil’s New York litigation practice as “Highly Recommended” and the Firm’s California and Florida practices as “Recommended” for the third consecutive year.
In addition, Benchmark Litigation distinguished 16 Weil attorneys as national “Litigation Stars,” 19 as “Local Litigation Stars” and three as “Future Stars” in their respective areas of expertise. Also of note, the guide ranked two Weil attorneys as among the “Top 250 Women in Litigation,” three as among the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers,” and four as “Top Litigators Under 40” in the United States. Notably, in each of these individual categories, Weil surpassed or equaled the totals in last year’s edition. In the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” list, Weil was one of just seven firms nationally with more than two lawyers listed.
With more than 350 attorneys, Weil's Litigation Department is one of the largest, most diversified, and highly respected in the legal industry. Weil provides clients with solutions to complex, multi-faceted legal challenges, including business disputes, regulatory actions and investigations, financial distress, and other potentially enterprise-changing circumstances. Weil's litigators partner with clients not just to address immediate concerns but to integrate legal strategy into the wider framework of their current and future business objectives.
Benchmark Litigation, which focuses exclusively on the U.S. litigation market, prepares its rankings and analysis following a six-month research period, which includes an analysis of recent casework as well as interviews with the nation’s leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.
