Benchmark Litigation Again Names Preti "Maine Firm of the Year"

Portland, ME (February 6, 2014) – Benchmark Litigation has again named Preti Flaherty as the Maine Firm of the Year at the second annual U.S. Benchmark Awards on January 29. According to Benchmark, the firm selected in each state is chosen "for the gravitas of their case matters during 2013, 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 five of its attorneys are currently listed as "Litigation Stars" and another three as "Future Stars."

Preti Flaherty's recognition places it among the nation's most well-known and accomplished litigation firms such as Sidley Austin, King & Spalding, Morrison & Foerster, Perkins Coie, and Faegre Baker Daniels. 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 and litigation partner Greg Hansel attended the dinner and accepted the award on behalf of the firm.

"Being selected as the Maine litigation firm of the year is a tremendous honor." said Tim Bryant. "Being selected two years in a row speaks volumes about the quality and depth of our litigation team."
