Benchmark Litigation Recognizes 18 Thompson Hine Litigators & Practices in Three States

Date: November 11, 2015

CLEVELAND – November 11, 2015 – Eighteen lawyers from Thompson Hine LLP were recently selected for inclusion in Euromoney’s Benchmark Litigation 2016. The guide’s rankings are the culmination of a 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.

Partner Elizabeth B. Wright is listed as one of the top product liability lawyers in the United States, placing her among an elite group of nationally ranked “National Stars.” Wright has also been named one of the “Top 250 Women in Litigation.” A client cited in the directory remarked, “Missy Wright is a real star at Thompson Hine, she is regarded as a dynamo in all corners of the product liability world.”

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.  

Eighteen litigators received accolades from peers. Ugo Colella, Timothy J. Coughlin, Frank R. DeSantis, Tom Feher, David J. Hooker, William W. Jacobs, Scott A. King, Brian J. Lamb, Seth A. Litman, 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 and Robert F. Ware are listed as Future Stars. Ware is identified by a peer in the directory as “a great antitrust tactician, president of the Ohio Bar, just really smart and a great guy in general.”

According to a client cited in the directory, “We have used other firms … but they were either sloppy or prohibitively expensive. 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 delivered, and, as a result, it 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.
