The National Law Journal in association with Law.com has honored Levy Konigsberg LLP on its annual list of “Elite Trial Lawyers”. This award is bestowed on only 50 law firms each year after a rigorous review process of verdicts and settlements nationwide.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, October 15, 2015 – Levy Konigsberg LLP, a national plaintiff’s trial law firm, has been named “Elite Trial Lawyers” for 2015 by the National Law Journal and Law.com. With over 30 years of success on behalf of victims of mesothelioma, asbestos cancer, and a wide range of personal injuries and fraud, Levy Konigsberg added to its proud legacy with an unprecedented string of 7 straight plaintiff jury verdicts, totaling $35 million, in a 6 month period alone in 2014 and 2015. During this winning streak, the firm, at one point, had 4 teams of trial lawyers, trying 4 separate mesothelioma cases in 4 different courtrooms in 4 different jurisdictions. Levy Konigsberg’s deep team of trial lawyers allows the firm to fight for multiple clients on many fronts against defense firms that typically expect plaintiff firms to only be able to handle one trial at a time. The firm’s reputation as top trial lawyer also enables the firm to settle many cases before trial.
The award of “Elite Trial Lawyers” by the National Law Journal and Law.com is based on a nomination and review process by these publications. According to the National Law Journal, this “recognition program” focuses on “firms that have done exemplary and cutting-edge work on behalf of plaintiffs” and evaluates each firm based on numerous criteria including “performance in significant cases, including key rulings, victories at trial and settlements”. The honorees were “derived from hours of research, analysis and nomination vetting”. To qualify for the award, each of the 50 firms were required to have obtained, for the time period July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015: over $40 million in awards for plaintiffs, or 4 or more cases totaling over $15 million in awards.
Levy Konigsberg is proud to be a leader in asbestos litigation, focusing on mesothelioma victims. The firm is also a pioneer in lead paint poisoning litigation, winning landmark verdicts on behalf of children poisoned by lead paint. The firm has also scored significant victories representing whistleblowers in false claims and qui tam lawsuits including a $70 million settlement in a Medicaid fraud case.
Levy Konigsberg trial lawyer Jerome Block will be accepting the “Elite Trial Lawyers” award on behalf of the firm on November 5, 2015, in Orlando, Florida. For more information, call the trial lawyers at Levy Konigsberg at 1-800-988-8005 or visit the firm’s website at www.levylaw.com.
