Benchmark Litigation Names Local Litigation Stars

February 20, 2018

Friday, Eldredge & Clark is pleased to announce that five of the firm’s lawyers have been named "Local Litigation Stars" in Benchmark Litigation’s 2018 edition. The firm is described in the guide as offering "a strong corporate practice that complements general business and commercial litigation capabilities regarded by peers as second to none. The firm’s expertise extends well beyond the commercial realm, however, encompassing more than fifty practice areas, including government affairs, regulatory law, employment and healthcare. In-depth understanding of horse racing and gaming law is one of the more niche practice areas the firm has cornered over the years."

Benchmark Litigation’s list reflects those individuals who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers. 

Kevin A. Crass - General Commercial

William Mell Griffin III - General Commercial, Product Liability and Securities

Robert S. Shafer - Appellate

James M. Simpson - Environmental, General Commercial, Product Liability, Toxic Tort

William A. Waddell, Jr. - General Commercial, Securities

Benchmark Litigation exclusively covers the litigation and disputes market in North America and is the only publication to focus only on U.S. litigation. The results of Benchmark Litigation stem from the culmination of a research period where researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms.
