Bilzin Sumberg Named 2016 Florida Litigation Firm of the Year

Press Release
February 12, 2016

MIAMI, FL – Bilzin Sumberg is pleased to announce that for the third consecutive year, the Firm's Litigation group has been recognized by Benchmark Litigation as the Florida Litigation Firm of the Year. The Firm's Litigation Department was selected over four other leading firms in the state. Winners are chosen 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 Bilzin Sumberg's reputation as the preeminent, go-to law firm in Florida.

Benchmark Litigation has consistently recognized Bilzin Sumberg as one of the most dynamic and successful litigation departments in the state. For the past six years, the firm has been ranked as "Highly Recommended" in the category of Local Litigation firms and in 2013, Bilzin Sumberg's Antitrust practice was the recipient of Benchmark Litigation's national "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. Benchmark Litigation shares one client's commentary on Bilzin Sumberg, stating "The criteria involved in choosing this firm 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."

Bilzin Sumberg's Litigation department was awarded "Florida Litigation Firm of the Year" for their outstanding performance in the past twelve months. The team has represented several high-stakes cases 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 notable 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.
