The Group Continues to Deliver Legal Services of the Highest Quality
Washington, D.C. — November 10, 2014: Benchmark Litigation honors Caplin & Drysdale's Complex Litigation Group with a listing in the publication's 2015 edition. The Group is ranked as "recommended" in the District of Columbia, marking its fifth consecutive year of being "consistently mentioned by peers and clients." A firm client remarked, "Over the last 30 years, we have repeatedly called upon Caplin & Drysdale to represent asbestos victims in the bankruptcy setting, and continue to do so today." As one competitor has stated, "They're among the top lawyers and firms I have worked with on complex mass-tort litigation and Chapter 11 cases, which tend to attract some of the most sophisticated and talented lawyers in the country."
Additionally, Members Peter Van N. Lockwood and Trevor W. Swett, III, were distinguished in the category of "local litigation stars" which signifies that they are routinely recommended in the D.C. area as reputable and effective litigators by in-house counsel clients and by peers at the nation's leading law firms. Listed in the rank of "future stars" are Members Jeffrey A. Liesemer, Kevin C. Maclay, and James P. Wehner, who are regularly referenced by clients and peers as litigators who are likely to become "local litigation stars" in coming editions of the guide.
Mr. Swett commented: "We are pleased that our Group has received this recognition and grateful to our clients and peers who consider us ‘lawyer's lawyers.' "
Caplin & Drysdale's Complex Litigation Group maintains a reputation as a powerhouse in matters involving creditors' committees, corporate restructuring, and commercial litigation. Its emphasis on close communications with clients, relatively lean staffing, and hands-on involvement by senior litigators, are keys to the Group's success in delivering legal services of the highest quality at excellent value.
