Heidi Brooks Bradley, Barbara J. Duffy and Gail E. Mautner were named as one of the “Top 250 Women in Litigation” in Washington for 2017 by Benchmark Litigation, a litigation-focused legal guide that evaluates leading law firms and attorneys. Additionally, Benchmark named Heidi Brooks Bradley, Peter Hawkes, Abraham K. Lorber, Darin Sands and Jennifer K. Sheffield to its 2017 “Under 40 Hot List.”
The “Top 250 Women in Litigation” highlights the skills and accomplishments of the female litigators listed in a variety of practice areas across all 50 states. The “Under 40 Hot List” honors the achievements of the nation’s most accomplished legal partners who are 40 years old or younger, and who have been deemed the most promising talent in their respective litigation communities in the U.S. by peers and clients.
Since 2008, Benchmark Litigation has been the only guide to focus exclusively on U.S. litigation. Rankings resulted from Benchmark’s in-depth research process which included extensive interviews with litigators and their clients, as well as a review of recent casework. Recommendations were based on interviews with the nation’s leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel. Peer review and overall depth of their litigation careers were important elements during this research.
