Manage Today; Prepare for Tomorrow
Today’s fast-paced and ever-changing business climate makes it essential to not only proactively address today’s needs but also look ahead. We practice for tomorrow so our clients are ready for what’s next. The COVID-19 situation is dynamic and fluid, requiring constant attention and appropriate measures for the health and safety of all. Our attorneys, who have formed a dedicated COVID-19 Task Force and online resource center, are plugged in and reviewing the latest developments to ensure we are taking appropriate steps to help educate and respond to our clients during this time of uncertainty.
Strong Individuals, Stronger in Teams
We develop client-focused teams to ensure first-class legal service, provide diverse and knowledgeable perspectives on business issues and better apply the firm’s collective strength and experience to our clients’ advantage. The 2021 edition of The U.S. News & World Report/Best Lawyers in America®, which describes itself as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the U.S. and establishes a system that ranks firms based upon the number of attorneys selected in designated areas, named 53 Benesch attorneys as Best Lawyers in America®. For the seventh consecutive year (2014-2020), Benesch also received a national first-tier ranking in Transportation Law by The U.S. News & World Report/Best Lawyers® and was named Transportation Law Firm of the Year in 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2020. Additionally, 28 Benesch attorneys and nine practice areas were ranked in the 2020 edition of Chambers USA.
We have had extraordinary success in welcoming many new attorneys to Benesch over the past several years, including opening a Chicago office (now more than 60 attorneys strong); and establishing a San Francisco office. Many of our new attorneys are highly-accomplished partners who have joined us from “Big Law” firms, such as Skadden, Jones Day, Kirkland & Ellis, Mayer Brown, Baker & Hostetler, Sheppard Mullin, Winston & Strawn, Reed Smith, Foley & Lardner, and Squire Patton Boggs, bringing even more depth and breadth to our practices. These attorneys joined Benesch to be part of the exciting growth, entrepreneurial spirit and ability to service clients by providing elite talent under a sustainable cost structure that eliminates unnecessary overhead. Our services in areas such as class action litigation, private equity, products liability, securities litigation, real estate, energy, intellectual property litigation and labor and employment, among others, have expanded substantially as a result of our recent growth.
