Robinson+Cole was again ranked as a “highly recommended” firm in Connecticut in the 2021 edition of Benchmark Litigation – the definitive guide to the world’s leading litigation law firms and lawyers. The firm also received a “recommended” ranking in the area of labor & employment.

The following Robinson+Cole lawyers earned the “Local Litigation Stars” honor: Wystan M. Ackerman, Bradford S. Babbitt, Patrick W. Begos,  Joseph L. Clasen, Gerald P. Dwyer Jr., Edward J. Heath, Linda L. Morkan, Rhonda J. Tobin, Theodore J. Tucci, and James A. Wade. This past August, Ms. Tobin was also named one of Benchmark Litigation‘s Top 250 Women in Litigation for 2020 for the sixth consecutive year. She was also the only female litigator chosen in the state of Connecticut for 2020. In addition, Stephen W. Aronson, Rachel V. Kushel and Matthew T. Miklave, received the “Labor & Employment Star – Northeast” recognition from the third edition of Benchmark Labor & Employment.

Now in its 14th year of publication, Benchmark is the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on litigation in the US. Firms listed as highly recommended received the most mentions by peers and clients. Local litigation stars reflect lawyers who are consistently recommended as reputable and effective litigators by peers and clients and were held as dominant in their particular jurisdiction. Labor & employment recognition is awarded based on a separate research study specifically focusing on the labor and employment practice area on a nationwide basis. Benchmark is published by Euromoney’s Legal Media Group. Read more about the publication’s methodology.
