10/11/2012

Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP has been recognized as a "Highly Recommended" Pennsylvania law firm in the 2013 edition of Benchmark Litigation and Benchmark Appellate. Additionally, J. Denny Shupe, David Smith, Carl A. Solano, Dennis R. Suplee, Ralph G. Wellington, and Nancy Winkelman were recognized as "Local Litigation Stars" and John K. Gisleson and Theresa E. Loscalzo were recognized as a "Future Stars." Mr. Solano, Mr. Wellington, and Ms. Winkelman were also recognized as "Local Litigation Stars" by Benchmark Appellate. Our attorneys were recognized for their work in the following practice areas: antitrust, appellate, aviation, commercial litigation, construction, insurance, intellectual property, product liability, and securities.

The Firm's editorial entry in the 2013 Benchmark Litigation guide noted that clients emphasized "Schnader lawyers are communicative, smart, knowledgeable, efficient, and effective. I have used them for personal injury litigation, general commercial, environmental and employment litigation, antitrust advice, and general corporate counseling, and they have excelled at them all."

The Firm's editorial entry in the 2013 Benchmark Appellate guide noted that a peer stated, "For appeals, that team at Schnader is unbeatable. They really have cornered the market for that." Both Mr. Solano and Ms. Winkelman were lauded by clients for their "appellate expertise, sound counseling, and representation." One client noted that Mr. Wellington is a "master craftsman of Pennsylvania and federal appellate issues, argument and briefing. He has the added attraction of being able to manage in the front lines the public relations aspects of any appeal battle."

Benchmark Litigation identifies the leading U.S. trial attorneys and firms at the local and national levels. Focused exclusively on the U.S. litigation market, the publication's rankings and editorials are the result of extensive interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel. Supplementary firm information is also submitted in the form of a questionnaire. The guide's "local litigation stars" reflect lawyers who are recommended by peers and clients to have established consistent reputations as trial attorneys, while "future stars" are those litigators who are highlighted as likely to be become "local litigation stars" in coming editions.
