Ellis & Winters attorneys recognized in Benchmark: Litigation report
Raleigh, NC : September 10, 2008
Ellis & Winters LLP has been recognized as an industry leader in the most recent Benchmark: Litigation edition. The annual report is a definitive guide to leading litigation firms and attorneys and provides general counsel with a detailed analysis of the best commercial and financial litigators in the United States.
“We are honored to have Ellis & Winters highlighted in this year’s Benchmark report,” said Leslie O’Toole, litigation practice leader at Ellis & Winters LLP. “Our focus is to provide the highest level of service to our clients across the country and we appreciate this special recognition.”
Benchmark: Litigation cited three members of the firm’s litigation group for excellence. Richard W. Ellis, founding partner of Ellis & Winters, along with Matthew W. Sawchak and Gary Eichelberger, were touted as “local litigation stars” in the North Carolina section of the annual report.
Benchmark: Litigation drew on Legal Media Group’s extensive database of contacts, conducting extensive face-to-face interviews with the country’s leading litigators, with general counsel from the Fortune 500 companies, investment banks and other large businesses, and with judges. To be selected for Benchmark: Litigation, a firm’s attorneys needed to be consistently recommended by its peers and clients.
