About Benchmark Litigation’s Top 250 Women in Litigation

The publication’s extensive research process, which encompasses six months of investigation into the individual litigators’ professional activities as well as client feedback surveys and individual interviews, has culminated in the selection of the most distinguished women in the world of litigation. These women have earned their place amongst the leading female litigators by participating in some of the most impactful litigation matters in recent history as well as by earning the hard-won respect of their peers and clients. Though they hail from widely different practice areas, they all share the distinction of being recognized as top players in their respective fields. Attorneys named to the 2017 publication were chosen through several phases of research: namely, the review of their recent case work, peer review in which the publication considers how attorneys at peer legal institutions might rank them, and a consideration of client feedback on their performances.
