Benchmark focuses exclusively on the U.S. litigation market, with a research team conducting extensive interviews around the country with leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel. “Local Litigation Stars” are attorneys who are recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers. Lawyers who are consistently recommended by peer partners, competitors and clients as litigators who are likely to appear as local litigation stars in coming editions are recognized as “Future Stars.”
