Publication: Thompson Hine LLP

CLEVELAND – October 29, 2013 Twelve lawyers from Thompson Hine LLP were recently selected for inclusion in the seventh edition of Euromoney’s Benchmark Litigation 2014. The guide’s results 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 2013, the firm was also recognized by The BTI Consulting Group as a “Standout” in Complex Litigation and Employment Litigation, ranking among the top 18 and 16 law firms in the country, respectively, and for its strength in Product Liability Litigation.

Partner Elizabeth B. Wright is listed as one of the top 65 product liability lawyers in the United States. This ranking places her among an elite group of nationally ranked “Litigation Stars.”

Benchmark awarded Thompson Hine the highest possible ranking, “highly recommended,” for litigation in Ohio. Nine Ohio litigators received accolades from peers. Timothy J. Coughlin, Frank R. DeSantis, David J. Hooker, William W. Jacobs, Brian J. Lamb, John R. Mitchell, James D. Robenalt, Brian A. Troyer and Elizabeth B. Wright were listed as Litigation Stars in Ohio and Andrew H. Cox and Robert F. Ware were listed as Future Stars in Ohio. Russell J. Rogers, one of the firm’s principal litigators in Georgia, was also listed as a Litigation Star for that state.
