Twelve lawyers receive “star” recognition

HARTFORD, CT (October 10, 2023) – Robinson+Cole was again ranked as a “highly recommended” firm in Connecticut in the 2024 edition of Benchmark Litigation – “the Definitive Guide to America’s Leading Firm and Attorneys”.

The following Robinson+Cole lawyers earned a star designation: 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 Jeffrey J. White. This past August, Robinson+Cole Managing Partner Rhonda Tobin was also named one of Benchmark Litigation‘s 2023 “Top 250 Women in Litigation” for the tenth consecutive year. Once again, she was the only female litigator chosen in the state of Connecticut for 2023. In addition, Stephen W. Aronson and Rachel V. Kushel received the “Labor & Employment Star” recognition.

Now in its 17th year of publication, Benchmark Litigation 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.
