Weil was named the sole winner of the Class Action competition in the New York Law Journal’s 2018 “Litigation Department of the Year” contest, which is part of the publication’s annual Professional Excellence awards.
With this honor, Weil’s Litigation Department has further burnished its credentials as among the best nationwide and in several regions in which it operates, based on prestigious accolades awarded by The American Lawyer and its sister publications. Aside from this most recent recognition, since March 2017, the Department has been named:
- Winner of the Florida Litigation Department of the Year contest by the Daily Business Review (General Litigation Category)
- Finalist in the national Litigation Department of the Year contest by The American Lawyer (Product Liability Category)
- Honorable Mention in the national Litigation Department of the Year contest by The American Lawyer (General Litigation Category)
The New York Law Journal honored just ten total firms in this year’s contest, which comprised a General Litigation competition and seven specialty practice area competitions. In addition to Class Actions, the specialty practice areas included Finance, Insurance, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment, Products Liability, and Real Estate. The contest was open to any law firm with a New York presence, and New York lawyers must have played a significant role in the matters submitted for consideration.
The winners will be profiled in the publication’s forthcoming Professional Excellence magazine and honored at the New York Legal Awards in New York City in October 2018.
