Patterson Belknap has again been ranked as a leading law firm by Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC's Benchmark Litigation in the top category, "Highly Recommended," for New York Dispute Resolution. The 2023 edition notes, “Patterson Belknap elicits resounding praise from a vocal contingent of peers and clients, the likes of which are usually reserved for a national firm. . . .  A client extols, 'Patterson Belknap is a premier litigation firm, with a deep bench of talented first-chair trial attorneys, who are supported by the brightest associates.' The firm’s practice offering covers a diverse spectrum, spanning commercial matters, white-collar crime, antitrust, intellectual property, securities and false advertising claims, an area in which the firm is said to be one of the few major players. The firm’s hybrid model also affords it the freedom to take on cases in the plaintiff and defense roles. Patterson Belknap has also made headlines as of late for matters involving a more novel nature." The Firm has been "Highly Recommended" by Benchmark Litigation in each of its editions since the inception of the guide. Additionally, 19 of our partners are recognized as "Stars" throughout the guide, as listed below. Partner Adeel Mangi is further recognized among the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers”.

Benchmark Litigation identifies the leading U.S. trial attorneys and firms at the local and national levels. The rankings and editorials are the result of the extensive interviews with private practice lawyers and in-house counsel. The guide's "Stars" are named based on peer and client recognition as top trial attorneys.
