Kaufman & Company Named in 2015 Edition of Benchmark Litigation
October 27, 2014Kaufman & Company is named a “Recommended Firm” for General Commercial Litigation practice in Ohio in the 2015 edition of Benchmark Litigation, the guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys. Additionally, this marks Partner Steven Kaufman’s third consecutive year being named as an Ohio Litigation Star. One client raves, “They represented us on highly complex ‘bet-the-company’ litigation and performed masterful work. They are ‘lawyers’ lawyers.’ They were extremely tenacious intellectually while practical in approach. They conducted themselves as true professionals under intense trial circumstances and I would give them my highest recommendation.” Kaufman is also noted as being one of Cleveland’s few business litigators who is also free to be adverse to certain companies and financial institutions. A peer states, “Steve doesn’t like to just litigate, he wants to take the type of cases that actually go to trial. That can’t be too easy on the heels of a recession but somehow he’s managing it and gaining an active docket of work.” The results of Benchmark Litigation stem from the culmination of a six-month research period where researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms. During these interviews, researchers examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers.
