The 5th edition of Benchmark Labor & Employment includes this year's Top 20 Labor & Employment Litigators and the first-ever Top 10 Labor Lawyers! For the second year in the row, the Benchmark team set out to find the leading lawyers in labor and employment litigation, and this year, the team identified the top lawyers handling the most significant labor disputes. Both lists feature an elite group of lawyers who have been recognized by peers and clients alike for their exceptional reputations and achievements in labor and employment. 


Congratulations to the recipients of the most robust and vocal "best-in-class" nominations through Benchmark Labor & Employment's recent research cycle!
