Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC's Benchmark Litigation 2016 guide has ranked Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP as a leading law firm nationally, with a Tier 2 ranking in Bankruptcy and General Commercial.  In addition, Benchmark Litigation recognizes the firm in the category "Recommended" for litigation in New York and California, highlighting that it "commands the greatest level of attention from its office in New York's Financial District" and that "its Los Angeles office has racked up some recent successes of particular note."
Benchmark Litigation identifies the leading U.S. trial attorneys and firms at the local and national levels.  The rankings and editorials are the result of extensive interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.  The guide's "Stars" are named based on peer and client recognition as top trial attorneys.
