New York, NY, November 7, 2016 -- Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC’s Benchmark Litigation 2017 guide has ranked Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP as a leading law firm nationally, with a Tier 2 ranking in Bankruptcy and General Commercial Litigation.  In addition, Benchmark Litigation recognized the firm in the category “Recommended” for litigation in New York and California.
Benchmark Litigation identifies the leading U.S. litigation 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 litigation attorneys.
This honor is supported by the recent, high-profile, litigation wins we have had on behalf of our clients including PODS Enterprises, LLC., Grant Thornton International LTD., and the National League of Women Voters and the Alabama, Kansas and Georgia Leagues of Women Voters.  It is also reflective of our continuous efforts to expand the firm’s litigation practice across strategic practice areas.  
Several Stroock partners are recognized as “Stars” throughout the guide, as listed below.  In addition, special counsel Dina Kolker is listed as a “Future Star.”
