McAfee & Taft’s litigation practice earned top marks in the 2009 edition of Benchmark Litigation, the definitive guide to America’s leading business litigation firms and attorneys. Ten attorneys were singled out for recognition in this year’s guide — the most of any Oklahoma law firm. Benchmark focuses on the US litigation market, with a research team conducting face-to-face interviews around the country with leading legal professionals, in-house counsel and business owners. Named as "local litigation stars" were Joseph Bocock, John Hermes, John Kenney, Reid Robison, Spencer Smith, Jeff Todd and James Webb. Named as "future stars" were Michael McClintock, Tamara Pullin and Natalie Ramsey.
