Twelve Network member firms are ranked "Recommended" or "Highly Recommended" in their State by Institutional Investor in its debut edition of "Benchmark: Litigation, the definitive guide to America's leading litigation firms and attorneys", 2008 edition.

5,000 copies of Benchmark: Litigation will be sent to:

• Fortune1000 general counsel and litigation counsel
• Institutional Investor’s unique database of buyers of legal services in some of the largest companies in each state
• General counsel of the America’s largest investment banks
• Partners at the 50 leading litigation firms in the US
• Partners at the 20 leading litigation firms in each state

The report purports to identify the best all-around 'bet-the-company' trial attorneys in the U.S.

Recommendations for inclusion were based on "extensive face-to-face and telephone interviews with the nation's leading private practice lawyers and in-houe counsel between October, 2006 and May, 2007".

The report states that "[f]irms cannot pay to be recommended. Instead, firms have been independently offered the opportunity to take a professional listing, regardless of editorial content."

In addition to publishing in hard copy, Benchmark: Litigation will be available free of charge on the internet at and at, which has 60,000 registered users. All information in the hard copy of Benchmark: Litigation will be fully searchable online, by a number of flexible parameters.
