Richard Heimann and Elizabeth Cabraser Named Benchmark Litigation Top 100 U.S. Trial Lawyers for 2018

Benchmark Litigation has named Lieff Cabraser partners Elizabeth J. Cabraser and Richard M. Heimann to its Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America 2018 listing, echoing the publication’s previous selection of both for its 2017 volume. As Benchmark notes, the named attorneys were chosen “through a geographically diverse and intensive peer-and-client review-driven study over the six months of research” with an eye toward identifying “elite trial strategists in their respective fields.”

Benchmark Litigation describes itself as the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys. Now in its 11th year of publication, it covers the commercial litigation and disputes markets in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Congratulations to both Elizabeth and Richard on this prestigious recognition!
