CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Eighteen lawyers from Thompson Hine LLP were recently selected for
inclusion in Euromoney’s Benchmark
Litigation 2016
. The guide’s rankings are the culmination of a
research period that included extensive interviews with corporate
clients hiring lawyers to handle their litigation. Benchmark
Litigation
is the only publication on the market to focus
exclusively on litigation in the United States.

Partner Elizabeth
B. Wright
is listed as one of the top product liability lawyers in
the United States, placing her among an elite group of nationally ranked
“National Stars.” Wright has also been named one of the “Top 250 Women
in Litigation.” A client cited in the directory remarked, “Missy Wright
is a real star at Thompson Hine, she is regarded as a dynamo in all
corners of the product liability world.”

Benchmark Litigation awarded Thompson Hine the highest possible

… but they were either sloppy or prohibitively expensive. Thompson Hine
brings more quality to bear in business litigation. The firm’s internal
communication and coordination is superior to the other firms as well.
The firm’s lawyers not only have excellent litigation and trial skills,
but they are highly intelligent and savvy, they manage the cases
efficiently (including costs) and effectively, and they all provide
ongoing strategy and practical advice needed to obtain the best
resolutions.”
