Benchmark Litigation Names Orrick California Firm of the Year and Josh Rosenkranz Appellate Attorney of the Year

Benchmark Litigation | February.24.2017

Orrick took home California Firm of the Year at the Benchmark Litigation 2017 US awards last week. In addition, partner Josh Rosenkranz was named Appellate Attorney of the Year, after a year of remarkable appellate wins on behalf of Microsoft and a top former exec at Countrywide, among others. Benchmark Litigation notes that Josh “continues to lay claim to the title of ‘one of the finest appellate lawyers to be found anywhere’ with a trio of recent major victories to his credit.”

Orrick was also shortlisted in the practice group awards for Insurance and Product Liability, and partner Peter Bicks –  who Benchmark Litigation describes as a “’dyed-in-the-wool’ trial lawyer…commended by peers and clients alike for his overall acumen in court” – was shortlisted for Trial Lawyer of the Year.
