Stinson Leonard Street LLP is proud to announce that the firm was named "Kansas Litigation Firm of the Year" for 2017 by Benchmark Litigation. The fifth annual Benchmark Litigation U.S. awards ceremony was held in New York City. Lynn Preheim, the managing partner of the Wichita office, accepted the award on behalf of the firm.
Litigators in the firm's Wichita office have wide-ranging trial experience including commercial contract matters, environmental claims, employment, nuisance and other tort claims, medical malpractice defense, UCC issues, shareholder and ownership disputes, banking, software, aviation and aircraft crash defense and complex product liability litigation. They represent clients in state and federal court, before administrative agencies, on appeal and in alternative dispute resolution.
This past year attorneys in the Wichita office tried several weeks-long cases involving allegations of misappropriation of trade secrets, and disputes over water law, insurance coverage and property tax.
"We are honored to be recognized for the quality of work our partners, attorneys and staff are doing in Wichita," said Preheim. "Our team has had tremendous successes on behalf of our many valued clients in complex, precedent setting matters across the country. With each matter we work to understand our client's issues and their goals and devise a strategy that resolves disputes quickly, economically and successfully. "
The annual awards series recognizes the top practitioners and law firms in the United States litigation community. Benchmark Litigation is the only publication that focuses exclusively on U.S. litigation. The publication’s editorials and rankings stem from a six-month research period during which researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify leading litigation attorneys and firms. During these interviews, researchers examine casework recently handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers.
