Cohen and Wolf Recognized in 2013 Edition of Benchmark Litigation
BRIDGEPORT, CT - Cohen and Wolf earned the top ranking in the 2013 edition of Benchmark Litigation, the definitive guide to America’s leading business litigation firms and attorneys. The firm’s litigation practice was recognized as “highly recommended,” reserved for those firms receiving the most mentions by peers and clients, and who were viewed as dominant in their particular jurisdiction. In addition, five of the firm’s attorneys were singled out for recognition as "local litigation stars."
Recognized Attorneys and Areas
David A. Ball – General Commercial
Stewart I. Edelstein –General Commercial and Appellate
Stuart M. Katz –Employment and General Commercial
Gary Phelan - Employment
David B. Zabel –General Commercial, Bankruptcy and Employment
Benchmark named Ball, Edelstein, Katz, Phelan and Zabel as “local litigation stars”, which recognizes those attorneys “who were consistently recommended as incontrovertible stars by clients and peers”.
Peers commented to Benchmark:
“The firm is especially strong in real estate, but in litigation they represent a lot of municipalities and a lot of plaintiffs in land-use claims.”
“Cohen and Wolf served as my firm’s co-counsel on a major piece of litigation that involved three separate actions in federal court in Connecticut, three appeals before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, and a nine-month arbitration hearing in Washington, DC. The firm impressed on all levels. I absolutely would use them again in a heartbeat. Terrific lawyers, incredibly honest, cooperative and insightful.”
Benchmark focuses on the U.S. litigation market, with a research team conducting face-to-face interviews around the country with leading legal professionals, in-house counsel and business owners. It is the only guide that does not classify litigation attorneys by strict practice areas, instead pinpointing the best all around “bet-the-company” trial attorneys.
