Preti Flaherty Named Maine Law Firm of the Year by Benchmark Litigation

Benchmark Litigation has named Preti Flaherty as the 2012 Litigation Firm of the Year at its inaugural U.S. Benchmark Annual Awards. According to Benchmark, the firm selected in each state is chosen "for the gravitas of their case matters during 2012, including potential precedent set or verdicts with notably high dollar amounts at stake." Preti Flaherty has been listed as a "Highly Recommended Law Firm" by Benchmark and six of its attorneys are currently listed as "Litigation Stars" and another three as "Future Stars."

Preti Flaherty's recognition placed it among the nation's most well-known and accomplished litigation firms such as White & Case, Skadden Arps, Paul Weiss, Jenner & Block, Alston & Bird and Kirkland & Ellis. The Awards were announced at a ceremony at the Essex Hotel in New York City which brought together hundreds of leading litigators from around the country. Preti Flaherty attorney and Litigation Practice Group Co-Chair Tim Bryant, attended the dinner along with several hundred attorneys from around the country and accepted the award on behalf of the firm. "It is a tremendous honor to be chosen" said Attorney Bryant. "And a true testament to the talented litigators here at Preti Flaherty."
