MIAMI, FL - For the sixth consecutive year, Bilzin Sumberg receives top designation as "Highly Recommended" in Florida by Benchmark Litigation, a leading legal review publication. Within its report, the publication recognizes six attorneys in the Bilzin Sumberg Litigation Group as Local Litigation Stars and one attorney as a Future Star. The review of litigation practices throughout North America is released annually; it is based on extensive interviews with law firm clients, preeminent private practitioners and in-house counsel.
"All practical, diligent people with a deep, thoughtful understanding of the issues," is how one client describes the Bilzin Sumberg Litigation Group in the Benchmark Litigation 2016 report. Another client explains: "The criteria involved in choosing [Bilzin Sumberg] were the usual: competence, loyalty, meaningful aggressiveness, knowledge of the business, and knowledge of the particular area of inquiry, which was antitrust, as well as litigation, generally. Since we found Bilzin Sumberg to be excellent in every way, we would certainly use them again as well as recommend them."
In further analysis, the publication cites several high-stakes cases that the Firm's Litigation Group handled on behalf of an international clientele, including one of the largest antitrust lawsuits in U.S. history which has become a precedent-setting, price-fixing lawsuit against worldwide technology manufacturers. Other noted cases include a franchising dispute between two major food wholesalers and a successful counterclaim for a homebuilder against a $32 million claim by a plaintiff charging fraud and misrepresentation.
