Ten attorneys from Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, P.A., one of the state’s leading corporate and commercial law firms, have been identified as “Litigation Stars” and included in the fourth edition of Benchmark Litigation, the definitive reference guide that recognizes the top litigation firms and their attorneys. Two Robinson Bradshaw attorneys have also been tapped as “Future Stars” by the publication.

With twelve lawyers, Robinson Bradshaw has more North Carolina attorneys included in this year’s listing than any other firm. Robinson Bradshaw was also named one of seven “Highly Recommended Firms” in North Carolina, Benchmark Litigation’s premier designation for local litigation firms.

In addition, attorneys Thomas P. Holderness and Angelique R. Vincent were designated as “Future Stars” by Benchmark Litigation.

Benchmark Litigation identifies the leading U.S. trial attorneys and firms at the local and national levels. 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. Supplementary firm information is also submitted in the form of a questionnaire.

The guide’s “Local Litigation Stars” reflect lawyers who are recommended by peers and clients to have established consistent reputations as trial attorneys, while “Future Stars” are those litigators who are highlighted as likely to be become local litigation stars in coming editions. Benchmark’s independent research is conducted annually between February and June.
