Smith Anderson Adds a Future Litigation Star to Its 2022 Benchmark Litigation Rankings with Eleven Attorneys Honored

Benchmark Litigation

Benchmark Litigation, “the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys,” has recognized 11 of our litigators in the 2022 edition and awarded our Litigation practice a “Highly Recommended” rating for North Carolina, the highest possible rating. The guide recognized ten of our lawyers as North Carolina “Litigation Stars” and one as a “Future Star”.

Smith Anderson was recently honored for the second consecutive year with Benchmark Litigation’s “North Carolina Firm of the Year” award and last month our Employment Litigation practice received a “Highly Recommended Ranking” in the Benchmark Litigation Labor and Employment guide with four of our employment litigators also honored.

The Benchmark Litigation list of 2022 North Carolina “Litigation Stars” and “Future Stars” reflects only those individuals “who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers.”

Benchmark Litigation focuses exclusively on U.S. litigation. The publication’s results stem from the culmination of a six-month research period where its researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms. During these interviews, researchers examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers. Law firms cannot pay to be recommended for the guide. Recommendations are based on interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel. For more information, visit
