The 2022 Benchmark California law firm and individual rankings are now live!

The objective of this research is to offer a more comprehensive and nuanced examination of the California litigation and disputes market, including offering a closer look at the channels that are driving the work in this specific market, as well as a deeper dive into uncovering the firms and individuals servicing this work. We have covered both local firms whose only operations are in California, as well as the California-centric litigation benches of several national firms.

Our Benchmark California coverage includes rankings for more specific litigation areas including antitrust, bankruptcy, entertainment, environmental, insurance, intellectual property, plaintiff work, product liability, and securities/white-collar. We also take a closer look at the local litigation markets in key California regions and cities including rankings for Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
