For the fourth consecutive year, Lane Powell Shareholders Barbara J. Duffy, Gail E. Mautner and Gwendolyn C. Payton were once again named as a “Top Woman in Litigation” in Washington in the Top 250 Women in Litigation for 2015, published by Benchmark Litigation, a litigation-focused legal guide that evaluates leading law firms and attorneys. Since the inception of this list in 2012, Lane Powell has had a greater number of attorneys named than any other firm in the state of Washington.
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 and the District of Columbia. The top 250 women profiled were selected from their respective state’s list of “Local Litigation Stars” and “Future Stars” in the 2015 edition of Benchmark Litigation. Duffy and Mautner were listed as “Local Litigation Stars,” and Payton was named a “Future Star.”
In the 2015 edition of Benchmark Litigation, recommendations were 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. Benchmark Litigation is a U.S.-based publication run from the New York offices of Institutional Investor and Euromoney’s Legal Media Group.
