Benchmark Litigation Selects Five Lathrop Gage Attorneys as Litigation Stars


Five attorneys from Lathrop Gage will be recognized in the 2011 edition of Benchmark Litigation - The Guide to America's Leading Litigation Firms and Attorneys. The publication selects "local litigation stars" for each of the fifty states, profiling leading law firms across the full spectrum of litigation.

Michael Abrams (Business Litigation - Kansas City), Robyn Anderson (Insurance - Kansas City), Dan Cranshaw (Business Litigation - Kansas City), Doug Dalgleish (Tort - Kansas City), and Brian Fries (Business Litigation - Kansas City) were selected in their respective practice areas by the publication. Benchmark Litigation is published by Legal Media Group/Euromoney, who also produce the magazine Institutional Investor. Recommendations for "litigation stars" are based on extensive face-to-face and telephone interviews with private practice lawyers throughout the U.S., and in-house counsel. 

The department highlights successful representation of: Payless ShoeSource in a proxy fight against a group of dissident shareholders; nationwide construction litigation for the leading film exhibition company in the United States; providing nationwide counsel to numerous financial institutions; national defense of a top-10 public accounting firm; representation of both local and international media companies in a wide range of matters; and national representation of the largest privately held insurance brokerage in the United States.
