Four Years in a Row! Smith Anderson Named North Carolina Litigation Firm of the Year
For the fourth consecutive year, Benchmark Litigation® honored Smith Anderson’s Litigation team as its “North Carolina Firm of the Year” at its annual U.S. Awards ceremony in New York City on March 15, 2023, an event that recognized the country’s most distinguished litigators and law firms for their exemplary work during the past year.
Benchmark Litigation is the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on litigation and disputes in the United States. Smith Anderson and four other North Carolina law firms were on the “Litigation Firm of the Year” shortlist, the culmination of months of research, analyzing hundreds of submissions, surveying thousands of referees and interviewing hundreds of lawyers.
The awards celebrate the leading litigators and most substantial disputes across the United States, based on months of peer review-based research and review. State firm winners are viewed as the dominant players on a state level, the ones who are most often retained as local counsel and have a proven bench of local stars.
Smith Anderson’s award-winning Litigation practice team is known for its trial-tested lawyers who are active in a range of matters across complex areas of law including large multi-party, multi-jurisdiction litigation and complex matters in state and federal court. They advise and litigate matters involving intellectual property disputes, commercial contracts, shareholder actions and employment disputes, and represent real estate and construction companies and corporate policyholders in insurance-related disputes, major manufacturers in product liability and tort actions – which are often class-action based, and healthcare entities and professionals regarding licensure issues and allegations of malpractice.
Benchmark Litigation is the definitive guide to the leading litigation law firms and lawyers around the world. Since its inception in 2008, Benchmark has grown dramatically and garnered industry-wide accolades as the hub for in-depth analysis of the players shaping the practice of litigation.
