Benchmark Litigation, the only publication to focus exclusively on litigation in America, has named Husch Blackwell its “Missouri Firm of the Year.” The honor was bestowed at the inaugural U.S. Benchmark Annual Awards on Jan. 31 at New York City’s famed Essex House hotel.
As Anne Szustek, Benchmark Litigation’s deputy editor, wrote, “Firms in all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia were recognized for the gravitas of their case matters during 2012, including potential precedent set or verdicts with notably high dollar amounts at stake.”
In its 2013 rankings, Benchmark Litigation named Husch Blackwell a “highly recommended” firm in Missouri. In addition, seven of the firm’s Missouri attorneys — four in Kansas City and three in St. Louis — were selected as “local litigation stars,” and Chris Miller was recognized as one of its Top 250 Women in Litigation nationwide.
