Benchmark Litigation

October 1, 2020 — "Larson O'Brien has carved a niche for itself as a trial-tested group that is committed to pursuing a trial-forward agenda," states Benchmark Litigation in the 14th edition of its annual publication.

Benchmark Litigation – United States, the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and lawyers, has once again recognized Larson O'Brien and its partners for their excellence in litigation and client service.

The firm is named on the highly selective list of "Recommended" firms for litigation in California. Partners Stephen G. Larson, Jonathan E. Phillips, and Paul A. Rigali are also each recognized as a "Litigation Star" in the nationwide publication. This coveted ranking is reserved for lawyers who are consistently recommended as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers. Stephen has been recognized for three consecutive years, and this is Jonathan and Paul’s first year as "Litigation Stars." Paul was previously named on the "40 & Under Hot List" for the most promising emerging talent.

In providing feedback about Larson O'Brien to Benchmark Litigation researchers, clients describe the firm as  "very thorough, responsive, and quite excellent." Peers note that the firm's attorneys "are very no-nonsense and mean business when they say they’ll go to trial!"
