In The News
Walden Macht & Haran LLP (www.wmhlaw.com), has been recognized by Benchmark Litigation as a “Recommended” firm for 2018 following a comprehensive review of the firm’s work, clients, and lawyers.
In addition, three of the firm’s partners were ranked as “Local Litigation Stars” in categories including General Commercial Litigation, White Collar Crime, Antitrust Litigation, and Securities Litigation. Benchmark Litigation, a leading legal industry trade publication, exclusively covers the litigation and disputes market in North America, covering the US, Canada, and Mexico.
Founded in 2008, Benchmark Litigation has established itself as the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys. According to the publication, “Although a new entrant to the Benchmark rankings this year, New York commercial and criminal litigation boutique Walden Macht & Haran has established itself over its three-year history as a player to be reckoned with.” A client described the firm as “well versed on the subject matter” and “very responsive to my requests and needs and overall provided fantastic service throughout the process. I felt that I had a strong, knowledgeable and experienced team in my corner.”
WMH founding partners Jim Walden, Timothy Macht, and Sean Haran were each selected as “Local Litigation Stars” for their work in multiple categories. According to Benchmark, the recognition is reserved for “only those individuals who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers.” The results of Benchmark Litigation, Benchmark Canada, and Benchmark Mexico are the culmination of a research period lasting from four to six months, depending on the region.
During this period, researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms. During these interviews, researchers examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers. Firms cannot pay to be recommended for the Benchmark Litigation guide. They base recommendations on interviews with the nation’s leading private practice lawyers and in-house counsel. To provide the most accurate and comprehensive coverage of the litigation market, Benchmark Litigation researchers take a two-fold approach by analyzing the litigation market on both the geographic (state or provincial) level and the capacity in which individuals are specialists in a particular area of practice.
