Bookmark and Share

Six Lane Powell Shareholders have been named “local litigation stars,” with an additional two recognized as “future stars” by Benchmark Litigation, a litigation-focused legal guide that evaluates leading law firms and attorneys.  Lane Powell was also ranked “highly recommended” in Washington and “recommended” in Oregon, and has been recognized in Benchmark Litigation for five consecutive years.

As noted in Benchmark, Lane Powell continues to deepen its already sizable Northwest footprint, with dedicated litigators in Seattle and Portland, many of which have first-chair trial experience.  Lane Powell was also recognized for its strong commercial litigation practice, from matters involving tort disputes and employment law, to enhancements to the Firm’s banking, securities and real estate practices.

In Washington, Shareholders Stanton P. Beck, Barbara J. Duffy, Rudy A. Englund and Gail E. Mautner were named “local litigation stars.”  Shareholders Steve D. Jensen and Gwendolyn C. Payton were named “future stars.”  In Oregon, Shareholders Craig D. Bachman and Milo Petranovich were recognized as “local litigation stars.”

Recommendations are based on interviews with the nation’s leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel.  All listed firms and individuals were consistently mentioned during the Benchmark research process, with those who earn a “highly recommended” designation receiving the most mentions and held as dominant in their particular jurisdiction.  Benchmark Litigation is a U.S.-based publication run from the New York offices of Institutional Investor and Euromoney’s Legal Media Group.
