Cleary Gottlieb Earns Top Rankings in Benchmark Litigation 2019

October 11, 2018

Six of Cleary Gottlieb’s practice areas and two offices have been recognized again in Benchmark Litigation’s 2019 rankings.

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 15 Cleary lawyers as national “Litigation Stars” and 18 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 has really etched itself a place on the global stage that is remarkable.” Benchmark Litigation’s editorial goes on to say, “Over the past several years, the firm has seen its profile rise across a comprehensive span of offerings, most notably in the antitrust, enforcement and investigations, and international arbitration capacities – which have long been the firm’s calling card – but also bankruptcy, intellectual property, and securities.”

The guide recognizes law firms involved in high-profile and groundbreaking litigation from the past year. 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.
