Date: November 21, 2011

Wilmington – The 2012 edition of Benchmark Litigation: The Definitive Guide to America's Leading Litigation Firms & Attorneys has once again singled out Daniel Griffith, partner and chair of the Wilmington office of Whiteford Taylor & Preston LLC, as a “Future Star.”

Mr. Griffith commented, “Only 61 litigators in the entire state of Delaware were named in this year's rankings, so I'm very honored to be included among them.”

In addition to the recognition in Delaware, Whiteford was one of only eight firms in Maryland to receive the highest ranking of “Highly recommended,” in Benchmark Litigation and one of four in the inaugural rating in Benchmark Plaintiff.  The “highly recommended” rating, the highest granted, indicates those firms deemed “dominant” in the state. The editors characterized WTP as a “leading firm for business litigation, drawing from a deep bench of 150 attorneys.”

The 12 lawyers selected represent the broad diversity of the firm's litigation experience, ranging from sophisticated business litigation, to bankruptcy, products liability, and international arbitration and litigation.

Martin Fletcher, the firm's Managing Partner, commented, “We are delighted to have our litigation practice and numerous individual litigators recognized by this independent, international research firm. It speaks extraordinarily well of the firm's litigation skills and the high quality of service we deliver to our clients on a daily basis.”
