Blank Rome’s Insurance Recovery Group Named Benchmark Litigation’s 2020 Insurance Firm of the Year
Blank Rome LLP is pleased to announce that the Firm’s Insurance Recovery group has been named Benchmark Litigation’s 2020 Insurance Firm of the Year. The group was recognized at the eighth annual Benchmark Litigation U.S. Awards, which were held on February 27, 2020, at The Pierre in New York. The award program recognizes attorneys and firms nationwide that display the ability to consistently handle complex, high-stakes litigation and are highly recommended within the business and legal communities for the quality of their trial work.
“We are incredibly honored to receive this notable recognition,” said James R. Murray, Chair of the Firm’s Insurance Recovery group, who was also named a finalist for Benchmark Litigation’s Insurance Attorney of the Year award. “I am so proud to lead this talented group of leading insurance recovery attorneys. With decades of proven success in recovering billions on innovative theories, our national team is committed to continue providing our clients with a creative and business-minded approach to insurance and finding coverage where others are not able to.”
The nationally recognized practice works with policyholders in a wide range of industries and takes a creative and business-minded approach to insurance. The Firm’s insurance recovery attorneys have been industry leaders for more than 30 years, breaking new ground by making new law for clients and shaping it for others with precedent-setting litigation, mediation, arbitration, and settlement strategies that lead to landmark rulings, new types of coverage, and major advances for clients.
The Insurance Recovery group has expanded by more than 100 percent and has received significant recognition in the past three years. Most recently, the practice was named one of Law360’s Practice Groups of the Year for 2019, marking the second year in a row the group has been selected as a winner of this notable legal award. The group was also recognized as one of the The National Law Journal’s D.C. Litigation Departments of the Year in 2017. In addition, the group and its attorneys are consistently highly ranked in leading industry guides and publications.
