Cleary Gottlieb an Elite Firm in Benchmark Litigation USA 2024 Rankings

October 5, 2023

Thirty-two Cleary Gottlieb lawyers, six practice groups, and two offices have been recognized in the 2024 edition of Benchmark Litigation USA.

16 lawyers were named “National Practice Area Stars,” 24 lawyers were named “Litigation Stars,” five lawyers were named to the “40 & Under List,” four lawyers were named “Top 250 Women in Litigation,” and four lawyers were ranked as “Future Stars.”

Cleary practice groups were ranked in the areas of Bankruptcy, Competition/Antitrust, 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, D.C., and San Francisco routinely attend to matters that cross borders. The firm excels in antitrust, white-collar and investigations work, securities, bankruptcy, commercial, and even some intellectual property, and, unsurprisingly, it is also known as being one of the dominant forces in the international arbitration arena.”

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.
