In addition, 30 members of our team are recognized with individual rankings in this year’s guide. Among them are one of Benchmark Litigation’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers, three of the Top 250 Women in Litigation, five Top Litigators Under 40 and three partners named among the top 10 practitioners in their respective practice areas.

The profile of the Orrick team highlights praise from our clients, including one who notes, “I was impressed by the firm's representation. They had a tremendous knowledge in the practice area and were able to effectively communicate that knowledge and provide practical guidance in terms of overall litigation strategy as well as managing the case. I was also extremely impressed by how quickly they were able to come up to speed and understand the very complex business my company does. Beyond that, the team members were highly receptive to questions, whether legal, strategic or even administrative. I could reach out to any of the attorneys working on the case as needed. All were knowledgeable and receptive, from the senior partner on the file who was great down the line to the associates assisting with discovery."
