Date: December 17, 2014

Publication: Thompson Hine LLP

CLEVELAND – December 17, 2014 Seventeen lawyers from Thompson Hine LLP were recently selected for inclusion in Euromoney’s Benchmark Litigation 2015. The guide’s rankings are the culmination of a six-month research period that included extensive interviews with corporate clients hiring lawyers to handle their litigation. Benchmark Litigation is the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on litigation in the United States. In September 2014, the firm was recognized by the BTI Consulting Group as a “Standout” in Complex Commercial Litigation and Employment Litigation, ranking among the top 22 and top 18 law firms in the country, respectively, and for its strength in Product Liability Litigation and Securities and Finance Litigation.

Partner Elizabeth B. Wright is listed as one of the top 57 product liability lawyers in the United States, placing her among an elite group of nationally ranked “Litigation Stars.”

Benchmark Litigation awarded Thompson Hine the highest possible ranking, “highly recommended,” for litigation in Ohio. The firm is also recommended in Georgia and Washington, D.C.

Seventeen litigators received accolades from peers. Ugo A. Colella, Timothy J. Coughlin, Frank R. DeSantis, Tom Feher, David J. Hooker, William W. Jacobs, Brian J. Lamb, John R. Mitchell, James D. Robenalt, Russell J. Rogers, Brian A. Troyer, Anthony C. White, David A. Wilson and Elizabeth B. Wright are listed as Litigation Stars. In addition, Andrew H. Cox, Jennifer Mingus Mountcastle and Robert F. Ware are listed as Future Stars.

According to a client cited in the directory, “Thompson Hine brings more quality to bear in business litigation. The firm’s internal communication and coordination is superior to the other firms as well. The firm’s lawyers not only have excellent litigation and trial skills, but they are highly intelligent and savvy, they manage the cases efficiently (including costs) and effectively, and they all provide ongoing strategy and practical advice needed to obtain the best resolutions.”

Thompson Hine understands that clients are seeking significant changes in the way legal services are provided and managed, and has changed its service delivery model, adding personnel, software, infrastructure and training in areas including legal project management, value-based pricing, flexible staffing and process efficiency through its SmartPaTH initiative.
