Washington, D.C.—October 9, 2013:  Caplin & Drysdale is pleased to announce that for a fourth consecutive year the firm's Complex Litigation Group has been recognized by Benchmark Litigation with a listing in their 2014 edition.  For the first time, the Group earned a "highly recommended" ranking in Washington, D.C., indicating they received "the most mentions and were held as dominant in their particular jurisdiction."  The ranking also highlights the fact that lawyers on the team consistently handle complex, high-stakes cases in multiple jurisdictions.  "To be ‘highly recommended' by our clients and peers is a great affirmation of the importance we place on delivering legal services of the highest quality at excellent value," said Trevor W. Swett III, a senior Member of the Group.  The ranking further demonstrates that the U.S. business and legal communities recognize Caplin & Drysdale for the quality of their litigation professionals and for their trial work.

Receiving the distinction of "local litigation stars" are Members Peter Van N. Lockwood and Trevor W. Swett III, which means these lawyers are routinely recommended in the D.C. area as reputable and effective litigators by clients, in-house counsel, and peers at the nation's leading law firms.  Additionally, Jeffrey A.
