Cleary Gottlieb a Top Firm in Benchmark Litigation USA 2022 Rankings

October 1, 2021

Thirty-one Cleary Gottlieb lawyers, six practice groups, and two offices have been recognized in the 2022 edition of Benchmark Litigation USA.

The firm earned 22 “Local Litigation Star” rankings, 17 lawyers were named “National Practice Area Stars,” six lawyers were named to the “Under 40 Hot List,” one lawyer was ranked as a “Future Star,” and one lawyer was recognized as a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer.”

Cleary practice groups were ranked in the areas of Antitrust, Bankruptcy, General Commercial, International Arbitration, Securities, and White-Collar Crime; and once again, the firm’s New York and Washington, D.C. offices were cited as “Highly Recommended.”

Benchmark Litigation notes that Cleary “stands out for its impressive global footprint – one of the most expansive in ‘big law,’ with more offices located outside the U.S. than within. Proudly bold in its international aspirations, its domestic-domiciled practitioners in New York and DC routinely attend to matters that cross borders.”

The guide recognizes law firms involved in high-profile and groundbreaking litigation from the past year. Research is conducted through extensive interviews with litigators, dispute resolution specialists, and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms.
