The extensive research process used in the creation of Benchmark’s Top 250 Women in Litigation 2020 involves months of investigation into individual litigators’ professional activities as well as client feedback surveys and one-on-one interviews, and has culminated in the selection of the most distinguished women in the world of litigation. These women have earned their place amongst the leading female litigators by participating in some of the most impactful litigation matters in recent history as well as by earning the hard-won respect of their peers and clients. Though they hail from widely different practice areas, they all share the distinction of being recognized as top players in their respective fields. This year's guide includes coverage of female litigators in the United States, Canada and Latin America. Attorneys named in the publication were chosen through several phases of research: review of their recent case work, consideration how attorneys at peer legal institutions might rank them, and client feedback on their performances.
