Polsinelli congratulates 18 of its attorneys nationwide who have been recommended by Benchmark Litigation in its 2019 report. Further, the firm earned recognition for its litigation practices at state levels in Arizona, Georgia, and Missouri.

“We congratulate all of our attorneys who have earned recognition in the 2019 edition of the respected Benchmark Litigation guide,” said Polsinelli Litigation Department Chair Russ Jones, one of the firm’s recommended litigators. “We are proud to be among those singled out by Benchmark as having displayed the ability to consistently and successfully handle complex, high-stakes cases across the country, and who are regularly recommended by their peers and clients for their professionalism and skill.”

Benchmark Litigation is the only publication to focus exclusively on the U.S. litigation market, ranking firms and leading national attorneys in various practice areas. Now in its 11th year, results are produced after months of extensive research in which client interviews, peer interviews, and examination of recent casework are conducted.

“The publication honors the best and brightest law firms and partners who stand out in their practices throughout the U.S. The partners listed have proven their eligibility as individuals at the partner level, ready to find their places in the courtroom and prepared to handle major cases – some of which are high-stakes or precedent-setting,” according to the organization.
