Fifteen attorneys from Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, P.A. are recognized in the eighth annual edition of Benchmark Litigation, a definitive reference guide that identifies the top litigation firms and attorneys in the United States. The publication named 10 Robinson Bradshaw attorneys “Local Litigation Stars” and five attorneys “Future Stars.”

Robinson Bradshaw has the most attorneys in North Carolina included in the annual listing for the fifth consecutive year. Robinson Bradshaw also was named one of seven “Highly Recommended Firms” in North Carolina, the premier designation for local litigation firms included in Benchmark Litigation. Focused exclusively on the U.S. litigation market, the publication’s rankings and editorials are the result of extensive interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.

In addition, Adam K. Doerr, Pearlynn G. Houck, Jonathan C. Krisko, Andrew W.J. Tarr and Richard C. Worf Jr. were designated “Future Stars” – litigators likely to become local litigation stars.

The firm was also recognized for its “excellent lawyers and practical approach.” Sources acknowledged John Wester for his strength in class actions throughout his career and Robert Fuller for his success in recent shareholder suits brought against a national bank.
