Lynne Hermle Named Labor & Employment Attorney of the Year at Benchmark Litigation US 2018 Awards


Congratulations to Orrick partner Lynne Hermle on being awarded Labor & Employment Attorney of the Year at the Benchmark Litigation US 2018 Awards.

Lynne has secured a series of major trial wins for clients over the past few years, including her successful defense of Kleiner Perkins in the closely-watched Ellen Pao trial in 2015. She currently represents Microsoft, Apple, Twitter and many other high-profile clients in significant employment litigation around the country.

The award from Benchmark Litigation is just the latest recognition Lynne has received for employment trial wins on behalf of her clients. She was named one of Law360’s Employment MVPs of the Year in 2017 for the third time since the honor was introduced in 2011, as well as one of The National Law Journal’s “Winning Litigators.” In addition, her trial victory last year on behalf of SpaceX was named one of the Top Defense Verdicts of the Year in California by the Daily Journal.
