Benchmark Litigation has announced its 2015 U.S. awards list, naming Polsinelli the Missouri Litigation Firm of the Year. The awards were presented during a Jan. 29 ceremony at Essex House in New York City. Polsinelli was nominated for the award in December, alongside two other Kansas City law firms and a St. Louis-based firm. Nominees were selected based upon research conducted between March and November of 2014.

“Our department is honored to make the Benchmark Litigation list and I am proud of our entire litigation practice attorneys who are committed to providing an outstanding level of client service,” said Russell Jones, Polsinelli Litigation Department Chairman. “This recognition demonstrates the superior efforts of our attorneys and the importance of continuing to strengthen and grow our national practice.”

This isn’t the first time Polsinelli has been recognized by Benchmark Litigation. For three consecutive years, the firm has earned either “Recommended” or “Highly Recommended” Benchmark Rankings in Arizona, Georgia, Kansas, and Missouri. Additionally, individual Polsinelli litigators have received honors and recognitions in the past by several prominent legal outlets, including The National Law Journal, Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers and the American College of Trial Lawyers.

Benchmark’s Firm of the Year award comes during an ongoing period of growth for Polsinelli. The firm opened new offices in Atlanta and San Francisco during 2014, and for six years in a row, The American Lawyer has ranked Polsinelli as the fastest growing law firm in America.
