Benchmark Litigation

McAfee & Taft earned top marks in the 2019 edition of Benchmark Litigation, a leading independent guide to the nation’s top trial lawyers and litigation firms.  In addition, 23 of the firm’s attorneys – the most of any law firm in Oklahoma – were singled out for individual recognition.  In addition, the firm received the publication’s highest ranking of “Highly Recommended” in the state of Oklahoma.

Recognized Attorneys

Benchmark named Bomhoff, Cooper, Court, Donnell, Hermes, Kenney, Lauderdale, Leach, McClintock, Neal, Neville, Plumb, Robison, Michael Smith, Spencer Smith and Jeff Todd as “Local Litigation Stars,” which recognizes those attorneys “who were consistently recommended as incontrovertible stars by clients and peers.” Buchan, Dishman, Shinn and Woolery were named as "Future Stars," recognizing those attorneys who were consistently recommended by peer partners, competitors and clients as litigators who are likely to appear as local litigation stars in coming editions.

Named in the inaugural edition of “Labor & Employment Star – South” in Oklahoma were Michael F. Lauderdale, Charles S. Plumb, Tony G. Puckett, Paul A. Ross, and Nathan L. Whatley.

Benchmark focuses on the U.S. litigation market, with a research team conducting extensive interviews around the country with leading legal professionals, in-house counsel and business owners.
