Cleary Gottlieb Earns Exceptional Benchmark Litigation 2018 Rankings

November 3, 2017

Six of Cleary Gottlieb’s practice areas and two offices have been recognized again in Benchmark Litigation’s 2018 rankings.

The guide recognizes law firms involved in high-profile and groundbreaking litigation from the past year. Cleary’s New York and Washington, D.C. offices have been ranked as “Highly Recommended” and the firm was ranked in the practice areas of Antitrust, Bankruptcy, General Commercial, International Arbitration, Securities and White-Collar Crime.

In addition, Benchmark Litigation distinguished 14 Cleary lawyers as national “Litigation Stars” and 21 as “Local Litigation Stars” in their main areas of focus. Also of note, the guide ranked two Cleary lawyers as among the “Top 250 Women in Litigation.”

Benchmark Litigation said that Cleary “reigns as an international powerhouse, servicing both the most established and the fastest emerging business centers of the world.” Peers commented that “Cleary really has that ‘global clout,’” and that its litigators are “an excellent group overall…particularly strong in regulatory and white-collar defense work. They are available 24/7, provide rapid response to all questions, are always prepared, and are experts in their fields.”

Benchmark Litigation finalizes its rankings following an extensive research period, which includes an analysis of recent casework as well as interviews with the nation’s leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.
