Bilzin Sumberg Named Florida Litigation Firm of the Year

Press Release
January 30, 2014

Miami, FL – Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod LLP is pleased to announce it has been recognized by Benchmark Litigation as the 2014 Florida Litigation Firm of the Year. Our firm's Litigation Department was selected over four other leading firms in the state. Winners are selected based on the gravitas of their case matters in the previous year, including precedent set or verdicts with notably high dollar amounts at stake. This award further cements our firm's reputation as the preeminent, go-to law firm in Florida and beyond.

Benchmark Litigation has consistently recognized Bilzin Sumberg as one of the most dynamic and successful litigation departments in the state. For the last four years, the firm has been ranked as "Highly Recommended" in the category of Local Litigation firms. In 2013 our Antitrust practice was the recipient of Benchmark Litigation's regional 2013 "Antitrust Firm of the Year (South)," a distinction that only four firms across the country were selected to receive.

Focused exclusively on the U.S. litigation market, Benchmark Litigation identifies leading firms and attorneys at the local and national levels. Rankings and editorials are based on extensive interviews with the nation's leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.

Bilzin Sumberg's Litigation department was undoubtedly awarded "Florida Litigation Firm of the Year" for their outstanding performance in the past twelve months. Among other notable cases, the team represented plaintiffs in one of the largest antitrust lawsuits in the United States ‒ a precedent-setting price fixing suit against major worldwide manufacturers of TFT-LCD panels; resolved numerous outstanding litigations to permit the $100 million renovation of the Perry Hotel South Beach; and defeated a $32 million fraud claim against our client, a leading national homebuilder, and turned it into a $14 million victory.
