In just over four years, Wilkinson Stekloff has established itself as the leading trial litigation boutique in the country. The firm has a national presence, a deep and growing bench of first- and second-chair trial lawyers, and an astounding record of high-profile victories.
Based on its success in just its first year of existence, Benchmark Litigation named Wilkinson Stekloff the “Boutique Firm of the Year,” calling the firm a “litigator’s dream shop.” Benchmark selected Wilkinson Stekloff for that honor again last year. We have also received countless other accolades, including being selected as the National Law Journal’s Products Liability Group of the Year in 2020, receiving two separate Law360 Trials MVP awards, and obtaining top rankings year after year by Vault.
What’s unique about our approach?
First, we don’t litigate cases piecemeal or think only about the tasks immediately in front of us. Instead, as soon as we are retained—and regardless the phase of the case—we work with our clients to develop the compelling affirmative narrative that we know we will need to win over the judge and, if necessary, the jury. Throughout every day of the litigation—in every deposition, every brief, and every argument—we maintain a laser focus on advancing that narrative to persuade our audience, both factually and legally.
Second, we bring to each matter an extraordinary team of attorneys who reflect the diversity of today’s bench and jury pools. Collectively, our partners have tried over 120 cases to verdict. With approximately 40 attorneys firmwide, we are proud to count six former Supreme Court clerks, 29 attorneys who have also clerked for federal judges, five former federal prosecutors, and one former federal public defender.
Third, we fight with overwhelming force. Our innovative fee agreements allow us to marshal all the necessary resources at any particular stage of a litigation, at no additional cost to our clients. This approach also helps to ensure that all members of the team know—and are ready to execute on—our overall strategy.
Our approach to litigation has produced unprecedented success. Industry observers have suggested that the jury trial is a dying art, but we have already tried 15 cases to verdict while also winning favorable results for clients at various other stages of litigation.
